For the most part I like small frame easily concealed revolvers and simi-autos. I believe the best gun for self defense is the one in your hand when you need it. I never leave home without one.
I have a Llama .380 111-A that I've owned for nearly 20 years. It was used when I bought it and over the years I have shot the hell out of it and learned to achieve surprising accuracy with it all things considered. I keep it very clean, minimally oiled, and it goes off every time, FMJ or JHP ammo. Although it isn't my every day carry, there is very little about the gun that I don't like.
The date code above the trigger guard on the left side is R 1. Serial # 599318. Can anyone tell me when the gun was manufactured or point me in the right direction? I would much appreciate it.
I will look forward to discussions on all things handguns with all of you soon.

Welcome from just up the road, and yea those llamas were crap, bought one while in the service and had it about two years and then got rid of it. Glad it works for you but you couldn't give it to me. But thats just me.
Welcome to HandGunForum.net!
Had one of those little Llama .380s that looked like a baby 1911, many years ago.
Worked fine initially, but after a few years I think I wore it out (bent, then broken, ejector).
Fun little gun.
