    Hope that this will rrplace my Lcp for summer/workout carry.
    Love my Cw9, hope its babby brother performs just as well.
    What ammo does it like or not like?

    I picked mine up about a month ago. After handling most of the pocket 380's I could locate it seemed to fit my hand the best. I've got a little over 500 rounds through it (mostly reloads) and only had issues with Fiocchi. It wouldn't go completely into battery with them. Had no problem with WWB, Remington or my reloads. Critical Defense and Winchester PDX1 both feed fine as well.
    I've noticed a lot of people seem to have issues with Kahr pistols, but mine has been flawless so far, with the exception of the Fiocchi, which was clearly an ammo problem.

    My P380 preferred the hot Corbon 90 grain JHPs. This was the only round out of many I tried that I didn't have stovepipes and random in-the-face ejection with.

    After three trips back to Kahr, it became reliable with everything, but that took close to 1000 rounds of pricey 380 ammo.

    My 2 LCPs have never bobbled on anything.

    Might check the Kahr forums to see how others P380s and CW380s are doing.

    There were some well dcumented horror stories a couple of years back, mine included.

    Now this was before the CW380 was released, so maybe things have been straightened out.

    It was a beautiful little weapon after it got straightened out, but never could really trust it, and stayed with the LCP.

    I do kinda miss the P380's great sights, and sweet trigger.

    Edited to add that I did have a K40, CW40, PM40, and PM9 before the p380 that all worked perfectly out of the box.

    My P380 has run flawlessly since day one. I think it is the perfect 380.
