I know a local fella that has Rohrbaughs, Seecamps, and NAAs, and he compares the NAA very favorably with the Seecamp - a tad less "polished & refined". I didn't shoot mine that much but it was 100% reliable and very well made. The main reason I sold it was the Sig P238 that replaced it...

A little bit more pricey is the Kahr p380. I just purchased one and broke it in. Flawless even during breakin. I sort of expected that since it is my third Kahr. The PM9 also fits most pockets but is a tad heavier. I carry it most of the time in my pocket but purchased the p380 to use in dress slacks and shorts. Kahrs are great guns but expensive. They seem to get better than average reviews. Good luck in your search.

To quote myself from a different thread, "I used to like carrying my NAA
Guardian .380 in my right hip pocket. Now I REALLY like my Kel-Tec PF9 in my right hip pocket". If you want a deal on a NAA .380 pm me.

I'm a Kahr fan too... Like my CW45 a lot and read lots of good testimony on the smaller calibers...PM9 especially... and P380 too. I have to confess that I dissed the NAA Guardian for no logical reason... kinda got it mixed up in my mind with another brand... (I'll blame it on old age). So I'm glad you spoke up to praise it, NGIB... I like to try and learn somethin' new every day.

The Diamondback DB380 has been getting a lot of good press. Fondled one at a recent gun show, and it was more comfortable for my freakish, alien-like hands than the Ruger. It disassembles like a Glock, but the guy in charge of designing the grip didn't come into work drunk every day.

I heart my Kahr PM9.



The quality is so visible and palpable every time I'm at the range, I'd have no problems buying a Kahr P380 without firing it.

However, the P380 is not enough smaller than the PM9 for me to ever give up the 9mm round. Why are you set on the .380? 9mm has much better capabilities, is much less expensive, and has a whole lot more options for ammo.

I would totally agree on the Kahr PM9, a little bigger than the LCP but it shoot 9mm, totally concealable with multiple options but not really a "pocket" gun.

Love mine, have put a ton of rounds thru her, great to shoot and no "hick-ups"

I have the Kel-tec P3AT but mostly carry my PF9. I am waiting to see the new S&W Bodyguard in 380. It has a lot of good preliminary reports. I looked at most of the others and the P3AT was the only one that came up right for me. 50 years ago I was taught when you pick up a gun, look at a spot, close your eyes and bring the gun up. If the gun is not pointed at the spot when you open your eyes, dont buy it. I will not buy a gun that does not point naturally. The sights on the small 380's mostly stink and it is a point and shoot. If it does not point dont mess with it. In a close encounter, he who shoots first accurately wins. I put 30 rnds through mine Friday at 5 yards in low light and they were all in the kill zone. I was the only one on an indoor range so I could control the lighting.
Note: The 380 can be very ammo sensitive. Test your carry ammo. XTP's work well in mine. Testing gets expensive but you dont want a jam.
