Really like my RM380. Great little shooter. Much better than an LCP or Bodyguard IMHO.
I'd be tempted to buy another one at $199 with 5 magazines!!
I also have an extended magazine, which is nice with the extra grip and +1.
Walther PK380 is a very soft shooting, accurate firearm. My favorite handgun for just "shoot'n".
Softest shooting .380 ACP that is similar in size and weight to the LCP is the Kahr CW380.
It will not shoot any of the exotic ammo because of the feed ramp design. It will shoot 95 gr fmj, XTP and Critical Defense without issue.
I found the Beretta Pico to be very soft shooting relative to some other pocket 380s.

My CW380 is a whole lot softer-shooting than either the P3AT or the LCP. I dunno about the "exotic ammo", because I don't fool with it. I've had problems in all my .380's with steel-cased ammo, so I don't fool with it, either. I stick with name-brand FMJ for practice, and Hornady XTP for carry. No problems with either.

Have you tried changing the grip? I've heard good things of the Hogue Handall changing the way an LCP / LCP II shoots enormously.
You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.
Kahr CT380. I've found it to be very good. 7+1, shoots nice and easy to carry and conceal.
A .380 in your pocket is better than a .45 at home.
