    Cobra Handgun

    When I was 21 I bought a sub compact cobra .380. I knew nothing about handguns, so I took it out of the box and shot it a few times and saved it. I took it out a few months later and the gun was a jamming machine. After I starting visting this site, I took the gun apart cleaned it and oiled it. I have passed about 30 - 40 rounds through it and have had no more problems with it. Anyone here carry a Cobra brand gun? I think I paid $160 for it brand spankin new. I was thinking because it is so much smaller than my G 22 it would make a good summer carry gun, I just want to here other peoples opinions on this brand.

    never had trouble with the one I had. You paid about the right price...typical plain jane little pistol. supposed to be pretty durable..didn;t run to much ammo through mine but it seemed to cycle O.K..

    nothing spectacular to say about em though....

    I agree with you. It was horrible until I cleaned and oiled it. Jammed every couple of shots. Anyone carry one of these on a daily basis?

    I have one, I've yet to fire it. Pocket bug is what I bought it for. I can't find .380s anywhere. Maybe after the ammo shortage straightens itself out then I'll find some ammo to shoot.

    My buddy has advised me that "The Gun Store" on Tropicana in Las Vegas has a nice selection of ammo. A little on the high side with regard to price, but then again IMHO it's better to pay a little more and actually HAVE the ammo rather than a very funky looking "club".

    Thanks, GF for the tip for finding ammo in L.V. However, we no longer have reliable transportation (had to sell the newest vehicle) so to get there is difficult. We take the Vet van over the hill into L.V. now, too. I checked the web site and found that they don't, but I wish they sold ammo online. Might ya care to pick us up some and hubby and I will reimburse you and make it worth your while for gas and time and maybe a home-cooked meal or dinner out next time you find yourself out this way? I make a mean Tamale Pie, an oven roasted chicken, and a tasty Pork Chop with rice soup meal! I love to cook, ask hubby! And I can bribe with the best of them. lol Be nice to meet you, too. I know, I'm dreaming. rofl

    I've been able to get ahold of .45's everytime I go to American shooter supply here in Vegas...they also sell re-loads wich are decent. haven't had any issues with the 300 rounds of those that I have shot..
