    Default Micro Desert Eagle .380!?

    where the heck did this thing come from?

    i was in target master yesterday and saw one. I never even heard a hint of this thing coming out, and it looks well made!

    anyone heard any reviews or fired one?

    Never heard of it, but that is awesome. How much was it? How big compared to the LCP?

    i forget the price... 500 something.

    just about all dimensions were a bit bigger than the p3at, but the thing is still TINY... the biggest difference was the weight; possibly twice as heavy.


    ...i still want one if they turn out to be reliable!

    same rounds as a p3at, 2x as heavy more than 2x the cost... whats the benefit?

    if it was more reliable, more durable, and more accurate.... yes i know they are 'ifs' but i would bet on the first two as being a serious possibility.

    and i wouldn't mind a little more weight, it might actually be FUN to shoot... i like my p3at for what it is, but i would no longer call shooting it 'fun'.

    I could see weight being a benefit. I can't imagine what it would be like to shoot my PPS if it didn't weigh so much...

    agreed shooting a p3at is far from fun, it sucks actually hurts my hands, but its not a gun designed for "fun" its for throwin in a pocket and noone noticing its there

    My P3AT has gone bang with ever pull of the trigger. What's not reliable about it?

    some can be very reliable... don't get me wrong, and mine is now, however it required a fluff and buff and a lot of shooting...

    ....but there are plenty of people that have persistent trouble.

    so if this gun ultra reliable out of the box, i'd technically call it 'more reliable'

    just my opinion.

    I would like the weight

    but at $500 !!! no way

    I would like to see one though, and maybe buy one if i could get a decent price. maybe used after some guys buy them cause they are new and trade them in.
