My favorite so far is the Sig P238. Locked breech design and very soft shooting for its size...

They aren't cheap but the price has dropped to a more reasonable level in the past few months - under $500 new with night sights. Nothing really good is really cheap - just depends what you're looking for...

my favorite is the bersa thunder 380 i also have the high capacity thunder 380 plus. the thunder plus is the only 15+1 380 on the market. i like it over all the others because it fits my hand really well. its light fast with a really good trigger.

the bersas are the most underated 380's out there.

they are basically a clone of the walther ppk that fixes the issues of the negative issues of the walther. the slide rides a scootch higher than the ppk eliminating the annoying hand scrape you get from older ppks. they greatly improved the trigger making it really easy to shoot in DA mode. they also gave it a take down lever eliminating the clumsy trigger guard takedown.

i woul strongly recomend checking out the thunder series.

Headed to Cabelas today to pick up my new LCP. I was thinking they were a little to cheaply made for me, but I just couldn't pass up the price that it was on sale for. So maybe I'll end up with something different in a few months if I don't like it, and my wife will get the LCP for her purse.

I'll post a range report ASAP.

I'll chime in again regarding the 10-rd. ProMag for LCP... I really like it... carry it that way IWB. The extra 4 rds. and the resulting full grip give me comfort.

Default can't beat a Bersa

I agree with JonM I"ve had my BT.380 for about 3 years and she's never had a problem makes for a very dependable cc and I think they are cool looking as well here's mine
