Well, actually from Spring. I've owned several pistols, but due to being downsized and unemployed, I have had to let them go. Bersas, RIA, Detonics, and a few others. But recently I acquired some extra funds and wanted to carry again. So, I bought a Hi Point CF380 last week. I was hesitant to buy one, I admit it. But I read enough good reviews to say that for $150, what could I lose? I've gotta admit, I like my 380. I toot it to the range and put 100 rounds through it with no problems at all. Yes, it's heavy. But my Detonics and RIA were as well. My only two complaints so far are the fact the dis assembly for cleaning is not user friendly, and that holster selection is practically nil. Luckily for me, I make my own out of leather. But, I do want something like the Fobus paddle that I can slip on and off. I'll figure out something soon enough I reckon.
