    Default Diamondback .380

    Hi guys (and gals), does anyone own or have experience with the Diamondback .380? Thoughts?
    I have an affinity for "pocket pistols" and this one interests me.

    They had one at American sports shooting in Brodheadsville. It was very Glockllike in looks and sights. It was light, in the LCR TCP range, and the trigger felt pretty good for a pocket gun.

    I found both triggers to be terrible to me so the triggers are on a scale to me.. The Glock was a crisper suck and the XD was a more mushy suck. They are in the same family, SR9 (heavy suck), Glock (crisp heavy suck), XD( lighter mushy suck), M&P(heavy mushy suck).

    Thelemite, I had the opportunity to handle a DB380 locally and I have to agree........even with my limited experience the trigger seemed way better then some of the other "pocket guns" that I own or have handled. It's slightly bigger than a P3AT or LCP but still small and not heavy.
    Anyone put some rounds through one yet?

    I plan to shoot one up pretty good. I like the gun have looked it over real well.

    I just started bringing them in the shop. They are a little hard to get but seem to come around more than the Kel-Tec when it sells out.

    I am taking the next one that I get in my shop and shooting it I will let you know how it works out.

    Oh my shop is in Brodheadsville Not Tannersville

    One day I will get you to be one with the plastic. You have just been lead down the path by the wrong person. You need proper guidance. You have no idea the power of the dark side.
