Got this as a substitute for my husbands Halloween Gangster costume. Since toy guns are not allowed in New York during Halloween and many stores don't deliver to NY, we had to improvise, so he used a Big Daddy Cane instead. Served its purpose, but the cane itself was really silly. The fake diamond on top was HUGE! It really stood out, which my husband didn't like. So he used it for a few hours then put it away.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
