New member here, but not new to car and gun forums. Retired automotive engineering executive (21 years with GM, 18 with Chrysler) - retired in 2001 after six years as the Viper Plant Manager. Heavy into Corvettes all my life - NCRS Master Judge and MIchigan Chapter Chairman 2000-2006, 2009 inductee to the Corvette Hall of Fame.

We live in Romeo, Michigan, about 25 miles north of Detroit; we carry, and I continue to look for a .380 where my 66-y/o wife can manage racking the slide without help. She currently has a Beretta 3032 Tomcat (.32ACP) - tilt barrel eliminates the need to rack the slide. I collect handguns - Berettas, Sigs, Walther P.38's, and others.

Have a CPX-3 on order for my wife to try out, have no idea when I'll have it. :)

Howdy and welcome from NC. Glad you found us.

The CPX-3 may not work for too well for your wife. It shares many parts with the 9mm CPX's, apparently including the recoil rod assembly.

But, let us know please. You never know till you try.

Glad you have joined the group. I may have met you moons ago as I was with an outside contract group JRSI associated with
Chrysler Service Contracts. The Viper was a unique item.
