Wife's early Birthday Present

This is what I got the wife for her birthday.. She wants to Conceal Carry.. She can't handle the 40 cals I have.. So this 380 is just right for her..

I have the same pistol at home that as soon as my CC comes in, I will be using as my carry gun. Nice little pistol. Good accuracy.

Very nice. I have a Browning BDA that's similar in size. Love the 2 tone on the Bersa.

I checked out a LCR last week and didn't care for the two piece/part polymer frame at all. For $50 more the Smith 642 next to it in the case was a much more appealing package.

That is what happened to my wife.. She fired my full size M&P40 and didn't like it.. A 9mm was a little better but she was like dead on with the 380.. That is what sold me.. So I got it for her..

Your right on. Got an Airweight S&W and shot my cusin's LCR. The LCR has a much lighter trigger and the grips are damn near perfect for my hands. I hit better with it than I did with my own J frame.

Ruger got it right with this one... LCP not so much but the LCR is sexy! just be prepared when shooting +P it has quite a snap

Another friend of mine has a Ruger SP101. It's a 5 shot stainless 357 mag. Not much bigger than a J frame Smith but much heavier. 38+P loads in it packed a pretty good punch. The LCR weighs about half of a SP101. I can see it being real "snappy".

I was looking at that but couldn't stand it any longer. Picked up a LCP today. If it sucks I'll sell it off and buy that Bodyguard 380.
