Bought an LCP about 3 years ago and have never had an issue with it. Very accurate, light, small and easy to shoot. What I carry depends on the mood of the day but I carried it for the last two weeks on a trip to Nebraska.

I also have a Betetta 84 first model that I really like. It’s really in a different class due to size and weight but it fits my hand about as well as any auto I’ve ever owned. It’s a great shooter and really like the 13 round capacity.

I had one of the Bersa .380ís for several yeats and shot it a lot.
Shot Russian steel cased ammo like a target pistol. Never jammed. Excellent DA trigger pull. As you said, much better than a Walther.
Sold it to a guy at work because it was bigger than some 9mm guns coming out, and I wanted something I could carry in a small fanny pack or right-front jeans pocket. Ended up with an S & W Bodyguard .380, Taurus PT-22, and a Ruger LCP x .380.
All thin and easy to carry. 😎

Thatís why I liked the 1934 Beretta .32 I picked up earlier this summer. I wish they made something like the LCP/LCP Max in all steel.

That .380 NAA is a snappy gun. The 642 is a much easier gun to shoot.

I am mighty fond of my Seecamp 380. It has been flawless for years and years.

7 rounds of Federal HST .380 in a package that is only 4.25" long and 3.25" tall. All steel, DAO.

Even without sights, I am good to 7 yards as fast as I can pull the trigger - Farther if I have more time to "aim".
