not enough difference in weight on the P380 and lcp, IMO. I think the biggest difference is the low bore axis of the kahr over the lcp. That has always been one trait of kahrs for shoot ability.
Price always matter as u know. the lcp is a good gun for what it is to, certainly miles ahead of the kt's in the same configeration and price range but as you know the lcp really went through some hellaiious growing pains to.
So far the kahr P380 has not had that across the board problem and there are enough of them out there that if major problems were there, it would have popped up by now. They have had a few bad busted magazine but that is vendor issues more than design flaws in the gun. I think they slide lock issue of pre matrue slide locking open is behind them, although mine will still not shoot the 102 grain golden sabres due to just to big of a bullet, but like I have stated to, There are just to many good other defense round sout there tolet them little issue get anyome pis-ed over the gun.
I hate it though when a reader states , well I can buy 3 lcp for the price of one P380, yup you can and now what the hell are you going to do with 3 lcp's???
to many other "good" guns are also ammo sensitive and we seem to accept that as a norm , so my motto is "just shoot it like you stole it"..
