    I recently came across a super clean Sig 232 and had to have it.
    It will be interesting to see how it compares to the G42.

    Heavier, snappier, and a lot better looking ...

    Yup. There it is.

    Possibly more reliable, too. (The p232)

    I've only owned 2 .380's.. A Taurus TCP I bought new, took to range, fired 100 rds (sort of). At least once in every mag full it either jammed, dropped the mag out, or both. Wife and I both are experienced shooters and it did it to both of us. Got rid of that p.o.s. and said adios to Taurus forever.
    Wife bought an M&P 380 EZ just cuz it was a good deal - have to say we both enjoy shooting that at the range. Accurate, reliable, and very limited recoil - especially after I hung a light/laser under the front.

    No longer, somewhat regrettably.

    My commercial (Russian :scrutiny:) .380 Makarov had a 100% reliable function over a few hundred total rds. used - all of it Russian ammo.
    Extremely rugged also-and this should not surprise anybody.

    When I watched actress/model Paulina Andreeva :) in "The Method" series (Netflix; also watched her in "BetterThan Us" series), I considered shopping for another Makarov......
    .....because of the :cool: extra appeal she gave the little tank. I liked junior detective Esenya Steklova.

    [​IMG]

    ---Not kidding one bit about being prompted by Paulina's image (why deny it)--. I had owned two Bulgies (9x18), two East German (9x18) Makarovs and the .380 (commercial).

    The best holster for my Makarovs, Sig P6, CZ PCR has Only been a "clip-less" Remora, two different sizes.
    You're never gonna have a loose belt when using any holster....Are you?
    The same belt tension which allows Other holsters to remain secure also works fine with the 'classic' Remora having No Clip.

    Unlike the hardshell Crossbreed, The Remora keeps the handguns' grips touching my hip (9 o'clock) and is easy to reposition. I've jogged at a normal pace on running trails, with No movement of the holster or Any of my handguns guns.

    Mine's a PPK and I've been very happy with it despite that fella at luckygunner.com badmouthing it on youtube. Don't carry it much b/c it ain't a revolver.

    I wanted one of those for quite a while for both the metal frame and the "real" double-action trigger. Never saw one locally when I had the money, though.

    Eventually picked up a Taurus TCP when I saw one for a good price, but never really carried it over the P32 I'd already owned. Now, I have the LCP-MAX.

    I bought two of those new several years ago - the last one on closeout from CDNN for $199.99, and it came with 5 magazines. Gifted it to one of my sons who says it is a reliable, good little shooter. They are well made and the fit & finish was very good.
