.380 or .38 Let me know what you have..........
I have a couple of Dimondbacks for sale if you're interested.
have you looked at a 9x18? around these parts, .380 is difficult to find, let alone find enough rounds to become proficient with the gun. 9x18 is easier to get a hold of, cheaper, and more powerful of a round to boot. just something to think of, especially considering there are plenty of inexpensive, though not cheaply made 9x18 mil surp pistols floating around.
Te problem with 9x18 is that the mil surp weapons that are around are heavy, more than double the weight in most cases. Show me a mil surp weapon that weighs in at 10oz? .380 is getting much easier to find now and prices are dropping to around 16-18 a box. More expensive than 9x18, yes, but how many rounds are you planning to put through a self defense pocket pistol.
got a charter arms .38 special I've been thinking of selling.
What are you wanting for it?
I have a Taurus Model 85 38spl. Blued.
PM me if you are interested.
I've got a really nice .380 for sale on this forum. I also have several hundred rounds of .380 for sale. Here's a link.
Here is a .380 I'm selling. http://www.northwestfirearms.com/forum/showthread.php?t=31262
stay away from the junk, buy a colt or smith, 5 or 6 shot 38, personally I like the model 10 2" round butt, harder to find but worth it
Is this going to be for home defense or concealed carry? I agree that 9x18 would be a great alternative for a self defense round, and weight is not really an issue for them as they are generally compact and lightweight. That said they make several .380 handguns with smaller profiles for concealed carry use, but I have found affordable .380 much harder to come by. Can you elaborate more on what kind of use you want out of your firearm? Depending on how open you are to other options you might even consider a revolver a .357 such as the Ruger SP101.
BTW if you are proposing a trade, it would only be fair to tell us what kind of condition she is in and maybe post a few pics
PA-63? It's an alloy frame, probably not 10oz but pretty close. Mines been nothing but reliable. The double action pull is awful, my wife could barely even pull the trigger but after a simple Wolff spring swap she loves it.
