    I’ve thought about getting one of these for a while. Heard quite a bit of folks had issues with the light primer strikes though… πŸ™„ Makes me nervous.
    I personally love single stack micro 380’s. I’ve carried a Ruger LCP1 since about 2013 & it’s been great. I’ve tried switching carry guns occasionally but keep coming back to it. The thing is just TOO EASY to carry. No excuse to leave home without it. I carry a spare 10rd mag in my other pocket. So 16+1 ain’t too bad. It took me a while to get proficient with it but I’ve had that little sucker dialed in for years now. Very reliable. Trust my life to it. I’ve only had to pull it once, to prevent my son & I from being mugged by three jacked up meth heads one evening when leaving the park. Luckily that was all it took to deescalate the situation πŸ™ Thank God & Ruger!

    I’ve never had any issue with mine firing Hornady Critical Defense ammo. It’s expensive but perfect for personal defense.

    I’ve got a taurus spectrum. I polished the feed ramp because it was having trouble feeding the 1st round on a full magazine. Since then I’ve put 500 rounds through it with no issues so I trust it now for carry. Great little backup or pocket pistol.

    Polish the feed ramp and use good ammo. I carry one daily. And yes you can hit targets out 25 yards. That’s the max distance on most Police departments qualification course.
