DJ58, after doing the research and deciding on a 380 caliber firearm for my first carry piece, I bought a NAA Guardian 380 last August. My research narrowed the choices to 3 firearms: the Seecamp (these are hard to see because they are hard to find!), the Kel-Tec and the Guardian. The Seecamp was a beaut! But they are hard to come by and pretty pricey. But they are definitely nice. Perhaps when I win the Lotto... The Kel-Tec does the job but the fit and finish were not to my liking (even though I wasn't buying a "safe queen") and I wondered about the light weight and the affect of shooting more than a few rounds at a time. The Guardian was pretty damn good looking, even with the black grips. These were also not readily available but I called a local dealer and he actually had one in stock. I had it in a bag in an hour; I have no regrets 800+ rounds later. The biggest drawback I could find from people that seemed to know 380's was the weight of the Guardian. (You said you have the specs.) When I go to the range, I usually fire no less than 100 rounds through any of my pistols. The NAA has a pretty stiff trigger until you get to about 500 rounds, then it smooths out some. I did that in 3 trips to the range. The Kahr trigger guard rubbed the first knuckle on my trigger finger; I wrapped a band-aid on it for padding. I don't need it anymore. The grips were too narrow for my comfort; I replaced them with the Hogue Cocobolo grips that NAA sells online. They work great and don't look to shabby either. I use the little curved extensions on the magazines. I bought a second set of mags and the extensions so that all 4 mags have that little extra to hold onto.looking for info on the North American Arms Guardian .380. user info. I have the specs.
I bought the NAA 380 as my "entry" into concealed carry. I stumbled onto a website that helped me decide on a 380: Selection of best ammunition for a defensive handgun... Seems like this would be a very easy piece to conceal. However, I'm not sure I would use a .380 as a primary carry piece; maybe as a BUG.
