Triger kind of finiky.
Put 150 rounds through her, still trying to find sweet spot.
Will play with snap caps to get more feel.

Good, I was going to ask if you have a .22 - That'll be a great gun to blast with, cheap and fun. Do you have plans to trick her out?

She already has RedDot installed. That should do for a while.

Any reason why you got a .380 for a first gun?

I didn't want to get anything bigger than 9mm, and I like how it looks and feels in my hand.

And I've got Bersa a friend.

A .380 is a great beginner's round, low recoil that will still pack a punch. The .380 is easily my favorite handgun round.

i wanted to get onof thos for a light small gun but the fact that the barrel doesnt come off/out really bugged me and i also found out that 380 is a bit more than 9mm

rrr70........Now before you get the big head about that little .380 pocket pistol, you need to know just what the limitations are when it comes to using this caliber for self-defense and it is NOT 20 yards.

However, please don't take my word, you just bundle up some newspaper and soak them in water and then shoot your .380 auto pistol into that newspaper. You will be lucky to get 2 inches of penetration using self-defense ammo. The .380 auto is a get the guy off your back type of a caliber no more than 6 ft in my mind.

The 9mm Luger has over twice the energy and 60% more penetration into wet newspaper than the .380-auto. Just some foof for your thoughts!

That was my first.

Now I have G30, 1911 and SP101 for SD.
Thinking about selling Bersa.

Any luck finding ammo for it? I was gonna get one but after test-firing one at the range I wasn't too fond of the trigger. It just didnt feel right to me. Or maybe because I love shooting my 1911 hmmm...

Well I have 3 of those 1911's and seldom shoot them compared to the Glocks and Sigs but one thing is for sure, when I pull the trigger on any of those Kimber's the gun goes BANG!!! The next thing I notice is big hole in the center of the bullseye.
