I actually would have loved the 380 had it been reliable, good news for you sounds like you may have gotten a good one. I liked the feel of it, a bit heavy for the size but that's actually what I liked about it. Felt like I had a gun it my hand and not a toy.
I personally like a Colt Defender for a CC 45. However there are alot of great options out there both steel frame and polymer. If you ask 10 people you may very well get 10 different suggestions

No! Absolutely no finger on the trigger until you're ready to fire.

There's nothing wrong with takin it to the range putting it on safety and pulling the trigger if you really want to see what would happen and no it wouldn't damage internals but I still don't understand why you would want to do that

Its more I'm just curious about internal workings of the system than me actually going out and testing it

So, how do you safely de-cock a DA/SA with a hammer and only a safety without a decocker, like my CZ-75? It always irks me to manually lower the hammer (slide fear), but it seems wrong to be forced to drop the mag, rack the slide and then ride the hammer down on an empty chamber.

I much prefer the decocker/safety on my lil Bersa thunder9.
