Default Sterling-PPL 380

I have one of these---not a pretty gun,but dependable w/good ammo. I got it from a friend of mine who has since passed away. I keep it for that reason,primarily. I've probably put 250 rounds through it since I got it in the late 80's. It's good for ccw because of its small size. Due to the very short barrel, it sounds like a much larger gun, and at night has a muzzle flash about 3 feet long. If you don't hit your target,you could scare it to death!

Default Sterling Arms

I'm new here. I posted to this thread after registering,but have no idea where my post went. I own a PPL in 380. It has been dependable for me,and I don't think I'll be getting rid of it,even though it's not as nice as any of my other handguns. It's small enough to carry, and because of the SHORT barrel,it sounds like a howitzer, and at night has the muzzle flash of a field piece. As stated in my other post,if you don't hit your target, you'll probably scare them to death.

I just lurvvvve mine!

I like the way it feels, and when it goes off in my hand, WOOHOOO!

I used to conceal carry mine in some tasty Gaultier pants, but now I open carry it everywhere. It's out, loud, and proud!

Any of you other gals have a big Sterling in your pants?

I love it's little, tiny barrel, but the mag well screams "slut!", you could easily ram a fist up that thing!

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!

Bring it on down to P.town on The Cape. The guys there will take good care of you.. and your Sterling.

I LOOOOOVE that rainbow finish. I could probably conceal that in my rainbow tye-die banana hammock and it would blend right in!

I don't own one but I want to thank Benning for letting me handle his. It felt so good in my hand. And when it fired off, it was incredibly awesome. I think Benning enjoyed watching me shoot it off.

By the way, do you guys like my new avatar? I could stare at it for hours.

They make a matching knife to go with your rainbow Sterling...
