Just my two cents worth...
There's some awfully nice compact 9mm's that are pretty darn close to the .380, and I would look at one of them. A friend and I both bought Taurus TCP 738's and had tons of trouble with them. We'd have failure to eject or load on almost every mag we went through. I know there's plenty of people that have great luck with them, but when two of them have issues, I'd say that's enough of a warning flag for me, and move on.
