No light strikes. This was my first outing and I was frankly amazed at how light the recoil was. It was no worse than my Beretta 84F - a much larger gun. The Beretta is obviously easier to shoot accurately, but nothing hides like my LCP. I could not successfully hide a J frame - tried everything. The LCP hides easily under a T shirt in a IWB holster. Very happy with this pistol.
