    I think I'm going to get one, for one, single, significant (to me) reason! I don't have one. :)

    I have said (and written here on the forum, I fear) that I wouldn't have a .380...........well, I've eaten my words before over the years.

    Would definitely like to do some touchy-feely with this new baby if it appears at our LGS. But gosh, then I'd have to buy another caliber ammo at today's prices.........AARGH

    Still might want to go and "just look at it" though.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    As I keep saying if this can go in my pocket and takes down like a normal glock and you can put nights sigts on it I am going to get it .. I like me a gun that takes down easy a lot of small guns were made for small hands I have come to find out when cleaning..

    And since galco is already making pocket holser for it. I might just have to save my pennies .

    Funny how everyone criticizes the lowly .380acp... until Glock finally comes out with one. The it's high on the hog on every bodies list.

    Too little too late Glock. Or should I say too big too late?

    Yeah, I was surprised as well. A Glock in Glock's clothing. So long as it's loaded with hot Buffalo Bore or DoubleTap, it might well be a winner ... if Glock has injected its normal and customary reliability and quality into the thing. Thin, light, concealable, performance approaching that of 3.5" barreled .380 guns (instead of the comparatively anemic 2.5" bbls). It has its place.

    It's fun to watch folks get all kooky googoo over a new gun. I'll just stick with my LCP and enjoy the entertainment. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll run into one at the range. Surely a generous and curious soul could find something on my table in exchange!

    Same size as the single-stack 9mm or .40's from other makers. It will probably shoot fine, but they're playing it safe, I think. Probaly better to go underpowered than risk damaging their rep with possible reliability issues in a new design, from a business standpoint. But they sure aren't leading the way.

    It'll be good for folks who love Glocks and for folks who find the tiny tinys like the P3AT or the LCP too snarky.

    High expectations are not the 380 way anyway.
