P.S. an interesting fact. The Desantis Cozy Partner that carries my Shield is also made for the Glock 27.

If you have the finances and want a good, smooth shooting .380 look at the Sig Sauer P238.
Update....
Didn't have the finances.
Bought the LCP. Didn't jump really bad imo. And carries good. Better than a full BERSA 380 Thunder, in good ol' Fl.

Cool Avatar, Riverg420. Saw the movie. Liked it. It was just as good the second time I saw it.

Either this Customized Kimber Pro Carry HD II (under construction)



Or this Customized Kimber Pro Carry SLE



In this home made holster




on my right hip under a tucked out shirt.

On your pro carry 2, why does the slide and trigger look like it has pitting? I'm sure it's a custom finish but I've never seen that. Could you post more detailed or a closer shot of the slide for me please?

For anybody leery of a mini .380, that's what Curtis Reeves, the theater vigilante used to kill that dastardly texter with one shot to the chest.

And I believe it hit (texter) Oulson's wife's hand before entering Oulson .

My apologies fupuk, but I could have sworn that I answered your question, but I can't seem to find where I did! So I will now.



M14sROCK coined the term "Hammered" so I'm calling the technique the hammered look. It's easy to do with just a Dremel tool, a bamboo skewer, and some course polishing compound or even valve lapping compound. The technique looks best on high polished surfaces so I first polished the slide to almost a mirrored finish. Then I took a bamboo skewer (I've used other things) and cut a short length then trimmed one end to fit the chuck of my Dremel then chucked it in the tool. I dipped the end of the skewer into the course grit polishing compound then stated rapidly tapping the polished surface. I frequently dipped the skewer in the polishing grit because the less the grit the lighter the strikes are. I went over the slide enough times to say it was "fully" covered then stopped. If you try and cover every inch of the slide it looks like mud! But by varying certain factors, such as the size of the applicator, the shape of the tip of the applicator, the speed of the "tapping" and the technique, that is tapping vs. dragging vs. "writing", you can make all kinds of different patterns.

The most interesting thing about the finish is that the surface looks layered. If you hold the gun in the light and move it in a rocking motion the "lower layer" appears to move! Sometime it even disappears! Wild. But it's motion picture shy. I've tried to capture it on camera, but I'm not a pro photographer.

Hope this answers your question.

John

This is probably my favorite ccw piece. Colt lightweight stainless commander. Grips are mosaic checkering by esmerelda. I've replaced the extended ambi-safety with a standard one. Fitted it myself. I use a serpa holster for owb carry. One of the neatest things with these grips is they will hold the plunger tube on if it shoots loose meaning your gun won't lockup. The grips aren't smooth and give a nice rough surface in case they get wet from rain blood(if your hit) or sweat. I've also removed the series 80 firing pin safety for reliability reasons.

A Bersa Thunder .32 IWB (same size as the .380) or else a Beretta Bobcat .22lr in pocket, or both.
