My dad has this beretta .380 compact and while the grip is kind of small, he's cut himself on the slide 3 times that I know of, 2x while I was there.
I've shot it tons of times fine. So I make a joke about the pistol when he gives it to a friend of his to shoot. I turn around and finish loading my .45 and turn around and he's bleeding from the slide. =/
That's 4 times now, and all of them have shot plenty, I dunno what's going on, but it's a running joke now whenever we bring the gun along.
On the same note I can't hold the 1911 with a thumb on the safety because it's way to close to the slide for my comfort.
