I came into a P380 thru the back door, I guess. I bought a Ruger LCP in April, shot in and liked it but, for some unknown to me reason, sold it to a friend for my purchase price, and bought the overpriced, temperamental Rohrbaugh R9 9mm. From the first time I shot it, with target ammo, I realizwed it was temperamental and not a primary carry gun. I am a retired NYPD Dertective of 20 years- half with a wheel gun and half with a Glock 19 so I was used to reliability.
I hated the difficult disassembly of the Rohrbaugh and the ridiculous 200 round spring that needs to be changed. The theory of "carry alot shoot a little" never made sense to me and I just this week traded in my Rohrbaugh (lost a few hundred) and purchased a Kahr P-380. I shot 75 cheapie target ammo and 30 street rounds flawlessly. The only issue was racking the slide, the round would jam wehen reloading, but I found a technique to slingshot the slide back instead of using the slide release to reload and it worked like a charm. I love the fact the gun locks open when empty-it is actually a shrunken version of a larger Kahr, with all the features. There iks no sacrifice like with a Seecamp or Rohrbaugh, both of which I consider to be "safe queens."
Anyway, glad to own this fine gun, when I took it to a local range - the guys were "ogling" it!
