    Just got back from the range with the DE. Not my first time shooting one, but man does that brake ever make a difference in felt recoil. I put 50 rounds of armscor 300gr XTP through it pretty much straight out of the box without any issues or malfunctions. Accuracy on it is great.

    That's my first grouping with it at 7 yards, and outside of the one flier i got them all to touch the 3 inch circle.

    I backed the target off to 10 yards and this is the grouping I got. I'm seriously impressed with the accuracy of my DE.

    If I had a nickel... :sigh:

    :diacanu:

    Actually, it's pretty huge by modern standards. I think my SIG P238 is smaller, definitely thinner, and is a .380. But the Beretta is still a cool little gun.

    .380s have gotten so small, that there's little benefit to the .32 ACP, and I think it's probably going to die out. Don't know about other states, but here in California, there are only a couple other .32 auto pistols on the market.

    The only .380 I've shot was my father's S&W 380EZ. The only .32 I've even seen that wasn't an antique was something a guy special ordered and was making a bit of a fuss over. The guy was a Wormtongue looking guy and this was obviously his first handgun. And he was arguing with the guy behind the counter of this Fudd-y Florida gun shop and I won't forget this one line he said. "They say it's been tested for 30,000 rounds, so If I were to take it to the range I should be able to shoot that much, right?":facepalm: I just did my 4473 and got my browning buck mark and left. Pretty sure they ran that guy out.

    My dad has a Mauser HSc .380 that used to belong to an ex-wife who passed away. He offered it to me last year when he was cleaning house but I passed. I've never liked the ergonomics of that little pistol and, personally, I don't have any use for 9mm kurz.

    If it was wartime version in .32ACP, it'd at least be worth something, but it's 1970s production .380. :marathon:
