This unobtanium is my son's, he lives in a free state. I just got it engraved for him. I have some second hand knowledge of the Seecamp operation and there's a pretty good chance these won't make it on to our approved list. Why would the manufacturer jump through CA hoops when he already has a 2 year backorder on these? While these .380's look just like their .32's they are very different. The .380 is about as close as you can get to a hand made custom. If a friend tells me it's okay I'll post some pics of his shop.

That's pretty cool. That thing must jump in .380, huh?

That's putting it mildly. There are lighter .380's but I do believe this is the smallest. There's not much to hod on to. The general idea is you fire 100 or 200 rounds (depending on who you talk to) using both magazines to confirm reliability. If you buy ammo in the future it will probably be a different lot so you fire 37 rounds , load your 2 mags and 1 in the chamber and you're good to go until you forget how much it hurt to shoot it last time. I do the same with LCP's and Kel Tecs and they're not plinkers either. Much better to have one of these so called mouse guns that some scoff at where you need it than to have your super whizzbang whatever in the safe or locked up in your car or something.

Bumped for beauty. Reminds me of the Jennings floral slides (don't shoot me for that).

It is like the Cadillac of mouse guns tipping its hat to the Pinto haha.

I have the 25 and 32 would love to get my hands on a 380, but not very likely here in the land of fruits and nuts.

If you're willing to jump through a lot of hoops to get one now is a good time. I have it on good information that Larry Seecamp will probably be retiring in the not too distant future and there is no telling what will happen to his company with him out of the picture.

I hope he's trained someone to take over. He is a great guy, good to his customers and a true craftsman he will be a hard act to follow. Nothing lasts forever though!
