I have read all the comments by the naysayers concerning the J.A. 380, I purchased one for myself and the wife. At first I was disappointed because I couldn't figure out how to strip & clean the pistols. Lucky for me someone on youtube showed how to do this, now we shoot without any problems. Just stay away from +P & HP's, FMJ's only and you won't have any problems, don't be hard headed and try to force these rounds you're only setting your self up for problems. The guns shoots straight as an arrow with no issues what so ever, as soon as you try to slip a HP round in then you encounter problems. As far as the whole HP's vs FMJ let the naysayers stand in front of me or come at me swinging while I pump 6 quick rounds into you then reload with my extra clip in my holster.
