    Seecamp??

    Can anyone tell me anything about a seecamp 380? Olease don't turn this thread into a commentary about caliber size, or the fact that you can conceal a 5" 1911 under shorts and a tshirt. I realize this, like my 1911 45's, etc. However there are times a tiny pocket gun would be nice. Does anyone have any experience with seecamp accuracy and reliability, as well as fit and finish. Also, how is seecamp as a company?

    I don`t personally own one,but the people i know that do own them swear by them.They are supposed to be the cadilacs of pocket carry and not that easy to obtain.I guess they aren`t mass manufactured like most other guns,but are worth the wait if you do get one.I can honestly say that i have never heard anything bad about them,but then again i`m no expert.

    I've always heard good things about them. Very well made and reliable. I'd like to have one in my collection.

    I use a .380 as my daily carry, but not a Seacamp. I'd love nothing less than a Sig P220; if only it would hide in my watch pocket! After a lot of research on caliber size I opted for what most critics said was the minimum caliber; the .380. Once that decision was made, I looked to the some of the brands out there: Kel-Tec, Seacamp, Beretta and North American Arms. After a lot of reading, mostly from owners of those brands, I chose the NAA Guardian .380. It is heavier than any of them, but not enough for me to care. I decided that weight wasn't the issue for this particular gun because it fits in my pocket nicely in a DeSantis Super Fly/Nemesis holster. I carry it every day, except where not allowed by law. It is reliable and I am accurate to about 30ft with 102gr. Remington Golden Sabre JHP's. After about 550 rounds, it settled in nicely; now the gun I bought for protection is a pure joy to shoot. The weight really pays off at the range. I put 200 rounds through it at the range last weekend. I only meant to shove a hundred through it but that other hundred beckoned. Ah, such is life. I've added Hogue Cocobolo grips for comfort; my only mod, and well worth it. (I've tried the photobucket thing on here but I haven't figured it out. I need "Photobucket for Dummies".) I've also gotten very comfortable shooting it one handed. And the other day I happened on an article in Guns & Ammo that said for the last 2 decades, the two-handed stance is the preferred way to shoot. It is great for paper targets that aren't shooting back but is not what you will come up against in the real world. So this trainer is recommending one-handed training first. The Seacamp: other than the price and availability, you probably won't hear a negative thing about it.

    Nice read....I may look into one or both of these.

    As so many

    ...others are telling you, there isn't much conversation about them because there are not many around (it seems). The comments I remember from PDO were all good. Personally, I thought it was too small, but remember seeing that attachment which squares the gun and provides a laser aimer. Never understood the point in a short barrel laser light but hey...

    As for .380, I note that even heavy caliber fanatics often comment that .380 or .38 snubbies are acceptable backups. That tells me that pretty much everyone agrees that they are "above the line" of an acceptable caliber. So, while I preferred .40 or 9mm, I have 2 .380's (Bersa and Sig) for "light" dress situations.

    As for me, I figure that a defensive situation will most likely involve a robbery and, unlike combat, most robbers really don't expect to be shot and have to engage in a shoot-out. I believe that a robber is going to be focused on the reward while most of us are going to be focused on saving ourselves and family members. So, if you get one into him, it seems that is the point where you are emerging on top (at least most of the time) and marks where they begin to end their resistance. This should make your follow-up shots even more effective. That is the value of training for shot placement and maintaining tactical awareness. As so many people have noted, think about who you see at the range and in classes. Any guys look like they are brushing up on their mugging techniques? Anyone practicing aiming through the eyes in a ski mask? Firing through the pocket of their warm-up jacket or hoodie? Even if they were prepared to kill you, how many have really thought through the implications of an exchange of gunfire?

    Has anyone seen any statistics regarding the likelihood of success against armed victims? Is it my imagination or doesn’t it seem like most of the incidents reporting armed resistance seem to resolve in favor of the victim. I only recall two incidents where CC people were put down with their guns drawn (Tyler, TX and Tacoma, WA). Both of those involved mental cases bent on committing homicide and long guns vs. handguns rather than robbery attempts.

    Read a great article years ago about a custom PPK/S done by Cylinder & Slide about a custom job they did. Always wanted to have mine done similarly.
