    Recently bought two new 380's

    I must have an affliction I bought two more pocket 380's, who knows why. A Ruger LC-380 and a Taurus Spectrum. I fired each one just 21 rounds 14 of PMC FMJ and 7 of Underwood 90 Grain XTP's +P, both are better than average on recoil, the Ruger is pretty easy to rack and it has an external safety for those that prefer one. The Taurus does not rack as easy, but is not really difficult. The Ruger has three dot sights, the Taurus is Black on Black which are harder to see, they work better than a lot of others in that they are distinct. I need to shoot more to recommend either but both seem promising.

    Now I have a Springfield 911 380 coming. Makes for a dozen pocket 380's and yes I still own them all.

    Shot another 21 rounds in the Spectrum, Okay there. 42 more rounds thru the LC-380, it's a keeper. Well I keep them all anyway but … you should know I like the LC-380 even with all it's safety features and I'm not a safety feature fan. Bigger but still flat pocket carry. Real sights, the dots are small, but they do work.

    The 911 I shot 72 rounds, all went bang and ejected fine. Fit and finish are better than any other 380 I own, my Colt Mustang magazine worked, the Springfield mags worked in my Mustang too. So in Summary the 911 is the finest single shot 380 I own, too bad that I wanted a semi-auto. The slide locked back each and every time, you had to use the slide release to load another round. I used new LAX, Winchester, PMC, and Underwood ammo. I will try to get this gun sorted or returned later this week.
