    nice little gun - pricey though, paid $490. 100% reliable. likes round nose ammo. took awhile to get used to, but i like it now. no holsters available yet, so i made one from an old purse.

    Real nice and complete thread that you posted.
    Congrats on getting yourself a nice little self-defense firearm.
    Yep, a bit pricey but "Hey" we are Americans - We buy what we want to own.
    Also I like the disassembly of that firearm and the dual recoil spring system.
    Also great that you took the initiative and made your own pocket rig for it.
    Get ready 'cause some members are going to call that gun "pug ugly" - don't let that bother you though.
    How many rounds have you had through it so far?

    Any function failures?

    thanks QKS. at first, breakdown was a bear, but i developed a method & now its quick & easy. lol, yep, its puggish allright, but i suppose some might see the shape as a benefit. & its about .5" shorter than a LCP. just under 200 rounds, all good. started out with walmart FN - no failures, but left smileys on the alloy ramp. smoothed it out with some 600 grit & switched to speerman RN which i'll use for carry. cycles smooth as glass. might try some powerballs when im feeling rich again :)

    i didnt like the KT & ordered, but couldnt get a LCP, & then the recall, so when i saw the ME380, i snatched it up. kind of miserable to shoot at first, but im happy with it now. might do a trigger job down the line, if i find a competent smithy

    some info i found on the Kevin indicates that there may be some small part failure between 5000/10000 rounds.

    Hey, if it works how bad can it be ? Doesn't look nearly as ugly as a P3at or a LCP. Congrats on the new gun.

    I think it looks cool, and pretty rugged. Much better than the keltec or ruger counterparts.

    A little bigger, and quite a bit heavier than the Seecamp, but less pricey too.

    Looks like it oughta do the job!

    David, you around clermont? i lived there for 10 years/florida for 30 - escaped to georgia 11 years ago.

    i had a hard time justifying 500 on a pocket gun, mostly bought it out of frustration. seecamp/kahr? no way this old welshman would spend that much :)
