I am preparing to make a bulk purchase from bulkammo and it would be much appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Once she shoots it, she's gonna be very disappointed. Don't blame her! Tell her to watch her shooting hand, as there's a good chance she's gonna get cut.

    Can she rack the slide w/o any help?

    Someone already responded in regards to ammo, so I won't.

    I like the feel and looks of the P30L......just don't like the location of the decocker.

    It's definitely one of those things that you'll either love or hate. I have mixed feelings on it. If you want the DA/SA you're pretty much stuck with it. Given that I run mine C&L ( I have the P30S) I had some issues when accessing the gun while holstered in that my the index point for my strong hand thumb is right where the decocker is and I would end up de-cocking my pistol while drawing. Some dry work cured that.

    I have a P30LS in LEM on it's way so I won't have to worry about the decocker any more, but that's a double action only trigger system and some may not like that option.

    Paratrooper, she can rack the slide without issue so far. You state she will be disappointed, in what way? Cut by the slide coming back?

    Yes.....have her keep a proper grip on the gun. Also, the plastic grip panels are made of hard plastic and have sharp checkering. At least the one I shot did.

    I have huge hands (XXXL) and shooting hand guns don't bother me in the least, no matter the caliber. But, the worst gun I've ever shot, was the .380 Walther. It belonged to my now deceased, BIL. He bought it new and wanted one (Walther) so bad. He even went against my recommendations.

    After he put about 100 rds. thru it, he ended up selling it. He took a pretty good hit on it money wise.

    The Beretta .380 is such a better gun in all ways. Much easier to utilize and much more shooter friendly.

    Re: Have decided, but seem scarce as of now.......Trouble locating...

    Para,
    Are you talking about the PPK? As in the steel framed gun?
    The op is talking about the PK380, a polymer framed .380 modeled after the P22.

    PK380

    Thanks Paratrooper. I follow you now. It all makes sense. Sounds like I should start looking for something else so when and if she decides it is not for her I will be prepared.

    Pretty sure they are. The PK380 hasn't been out that long and the PPK does have a bad rap for not being user friendly where trigger and "biting" are concerned.

    Yes, I was talking about the PPK .380.

    I should have specified that. My bad.

    The PK 380 looks like a much nicer gun.
