Same reason S&W doesn't bother to chamber the Shield in .380, FN doesn't chamber the FNS-9 in .380, Ruger doesn't chamber the LC-9 in .380, Sig doesn't chamber the 224 in .380, Beretta doesn't chamber the Nano in .380, etc, etc.
I like about every kind of gun and caliber made, but even I wouldn't want one.
The Slovaks make large .380 called CP380. If want something classic and odd give Zbrojovka "Praha" vzor 38 a look.
Actually, you're wrong on that one: http://www.ruger-firearms.com/products/lc380/models.html
I think a subcompact double stack .380 would fill a niche for the recoil sensitive, but the market would probably be small.
I thought the US had some strange gun laws.
I don't consider 9mm to have much recoil.
The Glock 25 and 28 are straight blowback guns, so I'll bet they have about the same felt recoil as their locked breech 9mm counterparts.
Other than collector value, there's no real market for these guns: The guns are the exact same size as the 9mms, but they fire a less effective and more expensive round with similar recoil.
