    Check Out My New Backup!!!

    Here is my newest purchase, a Diamondback 380. I think it is a great backup for my G27. I put 100 flawless rounds through it yesterday and am so far very impressed at this little pocket pistol.

    I saw one of those at the gun show this weekend and came SO close to buying it. I'm sure that it will work with most of the pocket holsters out there.

    Not sure about holsters just yet, but there should be some out there. Diamond back has been picking up some steam lately.

    Oh my gosh it does look like a mini me Glock. Adorable.

    I'd skip the night sights on this little guy. What do you have on the Glock? I'd rather sink the money into that.

    Holsters, if it were me I'd check with a local saddlemaker/leather person and get something custom made. How are you going to carry it in general?

    LOL. That's what I thought, but it just wouldn't be cool for a guy to say that...

    'Nice purchase. Let us know how it wears.

    Cool

    Got my DB about three weeks ago as a BUG for my duty G-21 SF and my off duty G-23. I love it. I got a High Noon Mr. Softy IWB holster which works great. I use Speer GDHP and Speer Lawman FMJ and it functions flawlessly. I have close to 200 total rounds through it to date. It did not like Sellor & Bellot but functioned fine with Remington FMJ. Enjoy your new addition to the family.

    I have Trijicon night sights on the Glock and have been pocket carrying in a cheapo BlackHawk holster but it prints pretty bad in that holster.

    Eeek! Did you accidentally throw your Glock in the dryer?!

    Seriously, if we didn't already have two LCPs in the family, I'd give that a look.

    Hope they come out with a 9mm some day...
