I bought this gun for my wife. For the price, it's a good little gun. Fires correctly and extremely easy to use. However, the slide doesn't always fully pop back into place after initially cocking it to start firing. I've only put 50 rounds through this thing and the slide thing happens enough to complain a little on this review. Also, when I first received it, it had scratches on it and the sights seemed to be a little scuffed up like it had been used. Overall I like it for the price I paid, but I wouldn't necessarily recomend this gun. My advice, pony up an extra $50-60 for a higher quality 380ACP like the Ruger LCP or something.

I purchased this gun for $186 from Buds. As expected, Buds' service was great and the gun arrived within three days. After taking the gun to the range, I had several issues with it failing to eject after just about every round. So I called I.O. and explained the problem. They sent me a FedEx shipping label and I had the gun back within 10 days. Now it works perfectly! I read several horror stories online about this company, but I had the exact opposite experience. They always answered the phone immediately, they were friendly, and they stand by their product with a lifetime warranty! I would recommend this gun and this company to anyone!

Excellent Hard to Find gun. Buds Gun Shop was the only one to have it. As always buds came through in a hurry never takes long to get what you order Got the gun cleaned it up took it out back with mag tec ammo fired my first round no problem fired next round failed to eject from then on it was a single shot. Took it down found the extractor was broken called IO they sent another extractor put it in same problem sent the gun back. IO sent another fired fine put 3 mags thru it no problem have carried it for a while but had to use it while out walking was attacked by 3 wild dogs they were pretty close by the time i got the gun out fired, guess what failure to eject, the noise startled the dogs, i had time to clear it about the time the dogs came back, fired hit one and it failed to eject lucky for me the dogs ran off. the gun now sits on top of my dreeser and i carry my keltec pf9 which i have never had a failure with. Although the io is supposed to be made in America i dont believe i will stake my life on it

When I purchased the gun. Buds was great as always. The hellcat seems to have good quality. I must be honest I had problems with the magazine loading properly and stove piping. I will give their customer service an A+++ They made up for any problems I have had. Could not have handle my issues faster or better. I wish Ruger had the same zeal when dealing with correcting an issue. I would recommend the company and their gun. Gun shoots great now. Its good to give a small USA arms maker a chance. I am rooting for their success.

As always Buds provided excellent service! I have had this gun for about a year now and I have shot around 200 rounds through it. I haven't had a single jam, malfunction or stoppage of any kind. I like this gun. It's not my favorite, but I do enjoy it. Most importantly, I trust it. I was a little worried when I first got it because I thought it felt a little cheaply made. The plastic hand grip made me worry a little, but now after a year I guess I had nothing to worry about. I was also worried about other people comments on how the magazine disengages in their pocket. This has not happened to me and I carry this as a back-up weapon quite frequently. The gun is accurate up to about 20 or 30 feet (give or take), which is pretty much what I expected it would be. The sights are very low profile, which took me a little bit to get used to. All in all I would buy this again.
