So she currently carries a SP101 in .357, but she complains that it gets heavy by the end of the day. With this in mind, we went to the LGS to try a few .380 pocket guns.
First up was the Ruger LCP. Initially she was afraid to try it because it was so small, and she isn't a fan of recoil. But, she ran a couple of mag's through it, aburtnd decided that she liked it. On about the 4th mag, right after she put the rounds in the mag, they all puked out followed by the follower. Live rounds all over the floor in front of the firing line, and the mag follower was at her feet. The RSO apologized, tried it himself and the same thing happened. He went back to see if they had another mag, but they did not.
Next up was a S&W Bodyguard .380 with integrated laser. The laser battery was dead, and again the RSO apologized. She ran a few mags through it, but she wasn't a fan. When she got her offhand thumb too high and got some slide bite, that sealed the deal.
Lastly was a Kahr P380 that the RSO offered due to the problems we encountered. She liked it quite a bit, and was pretty accurate with it. She suffered no failures at all, the gun performed flawlessly.
Keep in mind before bashing the LCP or the S&W that these are range rental guns that get abused, and probably don't get cleaned as often as they should.
Anyhow, we are seriously looking at the P380 (despite the 4 page thread about the failure one buyer encountered). We will probably go back and try the Sig P238 before making a final decision.
