    New addition to my pocket lineup

    Stopped by the GS today and they had this in the Glock case. I checked it out and $345 later brought it home. I gotta say, if this little thing shoots as good as the grip feels it's gonna be a huge seller. The overall size isn't any bigger than my LCP and the grip blows the grip on the LCP away. I just hope it runs like my LCP. Kinda bummed out though, it only comes with one mag what's up with dat DiamondBack!

    The dude at the GS said it's very Glock like and I'd have to agree for the most part, but the range test has yet to be given, so I'll hold off saying that just yet. Overall though, it sure feels nice comparatively to the LCP. I added the Pearce ? mag extensions on my LCP to give me more grip, but the DB380 is perfect without um. If you get a chance to hold or shot one do so, I'm sure you'll see what I mean. Anyway, here's a few picks of my new pocket rocket, enjoy.

    My S&W 638 that I got a couple of weeks ago is now my wife's home defense gun cause she said she liked the grip better than any of my other offerings.

    I fondled one at the GS yesterday. I must say I like the way it feels. It is amazeingly thin. The sights are great. There is just something about the looks of the gun that turns me off. I think it might be the "square" shape of the grip and the pointy barrel sits on top of it. Maybe if it had more of a grip angle would help. It just doesent have the sexy curves and lines like the LCP. Anyway it did feel better than the LCP. You got a good deal, they are selling for $400.00 in my area.

    are the slide serrations backwards or is it just me?
    It seems like they would be more useful the other way.
    It is a nice piece tho

    My brother-in-law showed me one of those Diamondbacks last week. I haven't got to shoot it yet. I like the way it feels in the hand.

    He says that the company, which is or was a boat builder, is located literally across the street from Kel Tec, and the gun is actually a Kel Tec product. Anyone have the scoop on that?

    Diamondback Airboats, 1060 Cox Rd, Cocoa, FL
    Kel-Tec CNC, 1485 Cox Rd, Cocoa, FL

    The companies are two distinct entities, but some of the people at Diamondback used to work for Kel-Tec.

    I picked up one my self yesterday.
    So far I LOVE it! Great little gun. I love my glocks but the beauty of this thing is is so small and thin it can go anywhere with me.
    It's a micro Glock 26 in 380 cal.

    I read a real good report on the Diamondbacks the other day but I don't remember where. I just remember the author was very impressed with the gun overall, especially the sights for it.

    Congrats

    The guy in the gun store in Brunswick here in GA. said that the guys in the Federal law enforcment training center were buying them as fast as he gets them but i went for the Pf-9. .380 so hard to find around here.
