I bought mine in 2012. Had owned a LCP since 2009 (well, I still do for that matter.) I realized I had put 156 rds through the LCP, because I just HATED to shoot it. Decided to run a full box through. At 36rds my trigger finger literally had blood coming out of the side from a blister that had formed and then popped and bled during that number of rounds.
Went back to the desk and borrowed a P380. This range gun looked like it hadn't been cleaned since the Clinton administration. I shot a box through it as fast as I could keep it fed, sore finger and all. It was a delight and had no malfunctions. I ordered one on the spot (they had none in the case or I'd have gone home with it.)
Decided not to trade the LCP, but it's locked away and will probably never be shot again.
Since then I've put 600 through the P380 without incident. What a great carrying, great shooting little pocket pistol.
Me too. I'm a also a convert from the LCP. I actually didn't mind shooting elsie, and loved the size but couldn't cure the smiley issue (google if you don't know what that is) and didn't want to accept it. Now that I've been to the range a few times with the P380, I'm sure we made the right choice for more reasons than just that. It's really about as fine as a gun can possibly be in that size.
I actually joined this forum before I got the gun, looking for info about it which I found. Now that I'm sold I'll try to contribute a little too.
