I love this accurate little pistol!
I finally found my missing camera! Here's a pic of the BDA my buddy gave me.
I love shooting it, all the bullets go right in a tight little group......I shoot CCI in a FMJ and Winchester Silvertip in HP...
just lately started loaded cast rn slugs over Red Dot and was I surprised really tight groups.
BDA 380 - what a find
Was looking for a smaller concealed ankle carry piece and ran across this 1995 model in my local gun store - what a beautiful find. In cleaning it yesterday, I noticed a couple of things: the walnut stocks have some scratches and dings in them and the sights look pretty challenging for these older eyes. Does anyone know if and where I might find factory replacements for the side stocks and are there after market products that I could use to make the sight picture a little less challenging?
"recession" in Jan 92
I really really wish I had not sold it and had it back.
I never liked the Beretta as well as the BDA
This gun is the only gun that can get away with a slide safety. I hate them, but I want one of these.
...not that I have anything against it...
Had one and let it get away, mine was a later model (2002) they were a special remake of them and still to this day regret not having it
The sad part is I lost one of the medallions from the grip. Gonna have to contact Browning for a replacement.
Now where the heck do I get a good tuckable IWB holster for it?
I've never understood why I MUST own only what is on the most-holy "approved list", nor why every gun I buy MUST be for self defense use, nor why what I own affects anyone else at all really.
Some of my guns I bought for self-defense, some for hunting, some for targets, some just to plink with, and some simply for no other reason than because I wanted to own them.
I bought a LNIB Beretta 84 simply because I had a nice holster to fit it. Years ago, someone gave me an Askins Avenger for the Beretta. Finally have something to fill it.
I've introduced several women to shooting centerfire handguns with this pistol and only one disliked it (said recoil and noise was too much she later got a Walther .32acp)
shameless thread bump here...
love anything/everything w/ a Browning logo on it, and envious of those who own a BDA for ~20 years now
(and been trying awfully hard not to pick up that one, "just for a closer look" that's been laying under glass in local shop for 2 months now)
New ones are coming into the country as we speak.
I bought a BERETTA 84 and then an 86. I really like them. They are very accurate, completely reliable ( A RARITY IN POCKET GUNS ) and pleasant to shoot. The only downside is finding .380ACP ammo at a reasonable price.
I will pick up a .32ACP model 83 if this keeps up! I can find all the cheap .32 I want.
