As far as self defense goes, if your expecting a bang and get a click, immediate action drill, no matter if you have a double action or not. I wouldn't buy a striker fired gun that had some magical second strike capability based on that feature alone.

I dont know where they got the 80% figure, in the past i dont think i have ever gotten a bad round to go off even with multiple attempts. We didn't buy the gun based on that feature, just saw it after i had bought it, and was reading a little more about it. She used to carry a .22 so this gun fits her very well - just glad i got her up to a .380. Next mission... the 40. Guess i will have to start looking at which .40's they have in pink!

380 with Buffalo Bore 100 gr is more than adequate. Why move her up?

Gotta agree...that split second hesitation could cost you your life. Tap, Rack and Roll should be your first and only instinctive response to a FTF...

You think so? I felt that way for a while, but seems like popular opinion pushes for a .40, so that is what i set as a goal for her. But i would love to stop here. Just want to make sure she has what she needs. My kids, and my wife are the most important things here on earth to me in my life. I worry too much about them.

Irregardless of arguements for or against second strike...A company must try to stand out in the crowd of gun makers. The choices we have now are very broad. Taurus needs to stand out from Ruger, Glock, Sig, S&W, Beretta, and on and on, They cannot hope to survive by saying "our guns are just like Glock and Ruger, only ours are made iin Brazil and cost less" Not much of a marketing plan there.
