Yeah, that was an amusing nickname coined by Quinn.

He got good accuracy.

He also reported a nice smooth trigger pull, a good deal less than the 8 lbs. advertised by Ruger. Hmm. Hope it wasn't a hand-picked ringer. Little piece like that would profit from a decent trigger.

One failure to feed.

The new Buffalo Bore ".380+P" loads gave impressive velocity. I am interested in the Buff Bore 100 grain lead flatnose hardcast load at 1110 fps from the little Ruger. Hope the recoil is tolerable in the lightweight gun.

i can't imagine that the recoil would be too bad at all. every .380 that I have ever fired has had quite pleasant and manageable recoil.

As far as I'm concerned, the KT PF9 trumps both!!

MY choice would be the 90 gr Double Tap Gold Dot, if I didn't have this
hot Foicchi .380 JHP ammo on hand.

If I didn't have a pressing deadline this weekend, I'd be down at Sportsman's Warehouse ordering one right now.

<pout pout> My usual toy store is still telling me "late summer". I need to find someone a little higher up the food chain for this one, I think.

--edited to add

The guy at the Gander Mountain hadn't even heard of them. "And I get six different magazines and I'm up on this stuff." (You might check the web sometime.)

I live just down the road from the factory in Prescott, AZ. Wonder if they would sell me one at the gate :)

If someone actually, with their own eyes, sees one of these things for sale at a retail gun store, would they please post about it.
