Thread sidebar: (sorry)
I see a difference of opinion here amongst my peers IRT to the reliability of small frame auto's. But my experience, although limited to about 20 or so guns of that description over my shooting career has been a bit different.
Early on I discovered that a very firm grip is required, and the gun must be kept clean. Beretta's, Bersa, Walther, Colt and other little pocket autos came and went, and all shot reliably. Only the long gone AMT Backup .380 was the exception. Had two, neither was reliable; toads, gone. Even two baby Browning .25 autos shot reliably, and even a Walther TPH, and they don't get much smaller that those lil guys.
I currently have Colt 1903 and 1908 Pocket autos in .32ACP and .380, Walther PPK .380, a Seecamp LWS .32 auto, Sig P938 9mm and a Micro 9. ALL are completely reliable or they don't get a place in my safe (remember the 'toad' mention?)
If you're willing to work with the gun, the ammo, your shooting style/skills, these little puppies run quite well if we do our part. At least that's been my humble experience.
Display of opinion done....thanks. We now return to our regular programming.
