    Good outcome. You found a quality shop there. And yes, let us know what you got instead!

    Here is a link to a review of the pistol. It appears you are not the only one who has problems. Read the comments about ejection, jamming, sending it back and so forth.

    Glock 380s are law enforcement only here in the US. I don't know where they are made. Like you, I don't know why anyone would want one.

    I agree with you and I would choose something that could feed any ammo every time. However, with the smaller pistols, there isn't much of a margin for error.

    In any event, most people, at least on this side of the pond, consider the 1911 .45acp as one of the best defense pistols ever yet for the first 80 or so years, the stock pistol certainly could not be reliably feed anything except FMJ. I say that only to say that many autos don't feed certain types of ammo, especially hollow points, WCs or SWCs.

    I just picked one up myself... love it. It's a Nitron with wood grips and night sights.

    I've had no issues with cheap ammo...

    By the way, we like pics

    I was hoping someone would bring this up.
    I had a friend who bought a new rifle, shot it a few times, and then it jammed up really good.. She didn't know they shipped it packed with cosmoline.

    Not sure if all firearms are shipped this way, but many are.

    My revolver even when clean has a bet of problem ejecting brass after I have shot it a few times, because of brass expansion, and GPR building up.

    Yup. I can make my Walther jam any time I want to by just limp wristing it. Just a slightly firmer grip not only improves reliability to 100% but also improves my score.
