    Best for what purpose? Concealed carry, P3AT, best as in most fun to shoot Bersa Thunder 380 for me.

    The Walther PPS is not a .380.

    The best on the list is the Beretta, unless you want to carry it.

    The best .380 is not on your list. It is the Sig 230/232.

    I voted for the Kel-Tec P3AT because it represents the best value for the money.
    The Ruger LCP is probably in second place, in my way of thinking.
    The Colt Mustang and the Sig-Sauer P.238 are the same, I believe. A single-action semi-auto is not a pocket pistol, and should be carried only in a holster which reliably immobilizes its safety lever.

    Since we are talking plinking and not cc I would go with the Bersa. Fits well in the hand and is very comfortable to shoot, Reasonably priced and comes in assorted models. Beretta 80 series 2nd because of cost.

    I'm going to reiterate rednecksportsman's question because it is necessary for answering your question. Best for what?

    I personally have Bersa 380s (380cc and BT 380) and each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Each .380 ACP on the market will be best at something.

    I would go with Kahr. The Sig 232 is nice too, if a bit dated. Forget the 238, it's goofy.

    I voted for the Walther PPS, because being a 9mm Luger, it is far superior to any of the .380's.

    But seriously, my requirements for a .380 are simply that it be small enough to conceal in a blue jeans pocket, and that it fires every time I pull the trigger. I have an LCP that fits those requirements, and by adding a CT Laser sighr to it, I have also made it somewhat accurate, inside about 10 yards. Accuracy can be an important factor with a round that is as anemic as the .380.

    Any .380 that is no easier to conceal than a 9mm should be replaced with a 9mm.

    Kahr......not the least expensive. Not the harshest to shot. the best gun on the list in my opinion.

    IMHO for your money, with out a doubt the Bersa.
    If 380 ammo were not so costly I might think about buying a Thunder 380 Plus, Holds 15 rounds. Very reliable guns at a good price.

    Too bad we can't get the .380 Glock model 25 in this country. Glock reliability and capacity with .380 ammo. C'mon tell me this wouldn't be cool to try.

    For carry: LCP
    For shooting: Bersa Thunder

    I voted for the LCP because I carry it a lot more than I shoot my Bersa Thunder.

    We have two bersa thunders and a P3AT. I agree that they both have their own places. The bersa is much more pleasent to shoot and more accurate. The KelTec is easier to conceal. My wife loves the P3AT.
