i just purchased a 380HC from a friend, and have fired at least 500 rounds out back in all types of weather with remington and the company hated winchester white box 95g FMJ without a single error, misfire or jam. the gun itself looks 'weathered', and to my knowledge has only been cleaned once and seemed much smoother dirty. the consistency and grouping is more precise than any other (hand)gun i have, or have fired. at 30 ft. its no more than 3-5 inches firing very rapidly. the slide still locks open every time, and i would trust it before my bersa in anyones hands except an enemy. mostly i see haters of HP guns on other sites, sure there are manufacture defects here and there, as is the case with every company that manufactures any type of product, but i would challenge anyone with any handgun against a THIS 380. i cant seen to find most of the ammo suggested by more experienced gun enthusiast, why the sudden shortage of ammo everywhere? would i be wrong in assuming our bs government is slowing the ability to defend even our own property :devilsidesmile:......?
