Default Super Excited

So i just finished purchasing my wife a new Walther pk380, and it should be here saturday...i can barely stand my excitement. Even though it is for her defense(i'm working two jobs and i'm gone 14 hours a day, she was recently laid off) i feel like i just got a new toy, and i wanted to share my excitement with you guys. Dont worry as soon as she comes in there will be pictures and a range report to follow, hopefully with some pics of her spittin off some rounds

anyone have any reccommendations on ammunition for a 380? i really like hornady but i've got no experience with 380's and figured i'd ask you guys.

if this thread now needs to be moved to the general handgun section i apologize.

Moved it for you. I am not a .380 guy, so I don't have anything to offer...

Congrats. It's a good thing that your wife will be able to defend herself. You may want to look into Corbon for SD loads. With the configuration of the bullet, it should give penetration and expansion.

yeah i didn't really feel comfortable with her only having her P22 to defend herself with, and since she is comfortable with the walther platform i thought this would be great for her. thanks for the suggestion on the ammo, i'll definitely look into it

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
