Purchased from Bud's (great price, shipping and communications!) a few weeks ago for my wife - she has a Bersa Thunder .380 that she shoots very well but its a bit to big and she seldom carries it.
I REALLY REALLY wanted to love this little pistol - looks great - perfect concealable size - not harsh to shoot. BUT FTF's right from the start - I cleaned and lubed prior to 1st. range trip and had numerous FTF's - went home, disassembled and lubed. Next trip more FTF's and jams, again cleaned and lubed. etc.etc.etc.
So after 250 rounds ( should be broken in eh?) I have no confidence in this gun for CC especially for my wife. The DB380 would cycle 4-5 mags perfectly then jam and FTF on next ( Factory Mags btw) But when a gun won't even cycle FMJ ammo it's a major problem.
I traded the DB380 in (lost some $ on this deal) on a Ruger Duo-Tone LCP .380 and out of the box the Ruger functions perfectly - no FTF's no problems and a pleasure for me and the wife to shoot - I have complete confidence in having her carry the Ruger.
Sorry Diamondback - I really did want to love this gun....Maybe Gen3 will be the charm??
