I just don't understand why you would pay the same money for a .380 that is the same size the 9mm..
Except if you have wrist issues and just can't slide the 9.
Should have been a nice little single stack...
We shall see how popular it is and how reliable.. (maybe if some become available)

Stop and really think about the job it is intended to do. Understand the real task: to get combat-accurate hits, with an effective bullet, on target as fast as you can get them. In some cases, that .380 might be better at the task than anything else. You indicate you have a lot of firearms experience and should understand this concept. Serious testing indicates not a lot of difference between the .380 and 9mm. Thousands of law enforcement agencies also failed to recognize this concept and moved like lemmings to the .40 caliber. Fortunately, many of them have recognized the.40 decreased accuracy and increased firearm wear and have returned to the 9mm.

I'm not sure why you think I have indicated that I have lots of firearms experience?
Might the .380 be a perfect gun for someone??? Sure.. Just like I said about the recoil spring not being as stiff and someone with an arm issue might find it better (This is true for my wife)..
I'm not knocking a .380, Hell, I carry a .380 on most days because it's hot here in Florida, and everyone has a T-shirt on here.. It's much smaller than my SCCY, and while I am working (I move around a lot most of the day) the little .380 is a more comfortable choice for me.. IF I'm going somewhere more questionable, or while I'm out hunting, I will take my SCCY..
But for most, if the cost is the same, the size is virtually the same, then most will choose the 9mm.. I'm just saying the 9mm will likely sell more units that the .380..
