I figure i will post my reviews of a few 380's that i have shot / own.
I will mention the Ruger LCP / Taurus TCP / Sig Sauer 380
This is my choice of 380 and what I own and carry. That being said let me say a bit about it and its features. The LCP is incredibly light and slimline. It is also very simple. I am not going to post specs on weights and dimensions, you can easily look up the Manufactures info on that. I like the fact that the slide does not lock back on the last round like most pistols. The average person is going to carry this firearm because of its weight, and concealability (i think i made that word up).. so how many people truly carry a spare mag with them for it? This is why it does not lock back, i would much rather the person not know I am empty, let alone if your empty then either the zombies have arrived or your a terrible shot and should not be shooting. It also is more aerodynamic to throw without the slide back for when you are empty
. The LCP is moderately accurate with the right ammo in it. Like all 380's it takes about 100 rounds to break in, and can be picky on its ammo, especially HP. However I can put all my shots in a pie plate at 20 yards. At 10 yards I can consistently put them in about half a pie plate. And 5 yards and under it is dead on. The gun does have a little snap to it, but hey its the price you pay for such a small gun. Now the big thing I like about this gun compared to other 380's and .38's out there is how thin it is. I can carry it anywhere without being noticed. My test is also to be able to carry to a job interview / funeral. (Example because you wear fitted dress pants that are often pretty thin and print VERY easily). Yet this pistol inside a pocket holster will not look any different then a blackberry phone. I also have never had my LCP jam while firing, I have had it hang up on the lip when initially loading it though, but thats ok i carry one in the pipe at all times.
Taurus TCP - When kahr made the 380 that got the attention of people... ruger made it better and taurus copied the design but made it cheaper (as they tend to do with many of their models). This gun is about the same dimensions as the LCP but a little wider grip and boxier grip. The slide locks back on your last round, and the overall design of the gun is a little more flimsy. I also noticed when shooting this gun that it is much less accurate. Now to its defense, accuracy does not matter much at 5 yards or 10 which is the most you will engage with this gun, but i still want to know exactly where my round will impact.
Sig Sauer 380 - Great gun! Very nice looking, accurate, well made... However I do not like the fancy it has... it is to much for me. I do not like having a external hammer, or the safety. That is just me. I love the gun, it shoots great.. but its just to much for a small pocket gun as its made to be. And expensive.
And then there is the Hell Cat... forget who it is made by.. DONT BUY IT!!! If you like maracas then its kinda nice though... since they sound like them.... i feel like a walmart greeter could make a better gun then this... simply do not buy it...
Hope this all helps a little
