Every time I bring it out my friends end up shooting it more than guns they brought because it's so much fun.

I'll second this, if you're willing to drop the money it's very worth it, recoil's soft as a nerf gun

Agreed. Top shelf. Accurate and reliable.

Glock 42

I love it. My hands are medium sized and it feels small, so I use ext mags, but my neighbor is a little Asian lady and she has one too.

I paid 440 for mine, so that's basically the same as this once you do a transfer.

Second Glock 42. Wife has one and now I’m eyeing one. Standard price is $400. You pay anything below that and you’re golden.

So much easier to shoot than anything and easy to conceal. Hyve extension was a bit pain in the ass to put on the mags but it was my first time with one.

The 42 is a great gun. Smallest thing I can shoot worth a damn and really easy to conceal in just about any clothing. I swapped back on my standard mags for summer carry. Glock mags get easier once you've disassembled a couple of them.

My wife insinuated that I may enjoy penis when I bought my 42, though. She likes her Bersa much more.

I think the Glock 42 is a lot smarter than the Glock 43.

Yeah, you heard me.

A 9mm out of a short barrel is basically a .380 anyway, and the 42 is a real pleasure to shoot compared to basically every other .380 in its weight class. I like mine with the +1 baseplates, it allows a real 3-finger grip. I really enjoy mine and carry it a lot. Just make sure to get some real sights for it.

Federal HST performs pretty damn well, as it's designed for compact and subcompact.

I disagree.

.380 is basically just an underpowered, overpriced 9mm. Why carry 6 rounds of .380 when you can carry 6 rounds of 9mm, and pay $5 less for a box of 50 rounds for the same quality self defense ammo?

Another vote for Glock 42. I traded in my LCP v1 for one and am amazed how much easier the G42 is to shoot. Also, it's a Glock through and through, so it's super easy to deal with and it eats everything. For carry ammo, look up the "Shooting the bull" 380 ammo test. I went with Fiocchi XTP.

What about some deals on .380 ammo?

I love my colt mustang to bits.

But for lower prices I've heard great things about the lcp ii

Bump! I'm in the same situation with my gf. Even my p938 is a little to big for her hands and she struggles with pulling most slides back. I'm between a 380 or a 642ls 38 special https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearms/model-642-ls-ladysmith-0

if she's not into guns, and is either going to keep it at home or keep it in her purse, i'd get a DAO revolver. simpler, less can go wrong, if a round fails to fire, you pull the trigger again. In my research, I found more people prefer the 38spl ruger lcr over the new S&W offerings, and it doesn't have a hillary hole.

the slide thing is going to be a problem all around. I would see how she handles the springfield XD-e, which has about 1/3 lighter slide pull (than a comparable da/sa hammer fired, i'm assuming)

I'd also look at other non-sig 9mm's, because people can mistake their issues with the ergos for issues with the size. the Shield and Walther PPS M2 are way more sculpted than the p938.

If you're looking at 380, i'd try: LCP II, glock 42, and the bodyguard.

Ruger LCP II's are all over the place at $240 and up. If this is only her 2nd gun, she might feel it's a little snappy but it's certainly concealable.

Gunbuyer has the S&W Bodyguard for only $249 which seems like a pretty good deal.

I have not fired a Sig P238 but they're about twice the price (and probably worth it).

But then, my only current 380 is a Remington from back in 1922. It's not snappy because it's apparently carved out of a solid block of steel, judging from the weight.

Depends the purpose I suppose. If she digs going to the range and you want a great carry piece that would double as a perfectly enjoyable-shooting range gun, the Sig P238 is a great choice, as is the Glock 42, but they are pretty much the more expensive options.

If it's just for carry, there are plenty of cheaper options, but with objectively crappier triggers (except for the LCP 2). On top of this list is the Ruger LCP 2. A completely revised trigger from the original, it's pretty much single action. It's got great reviews and is cheaper than the above 2. Then there's the original LCP and LCP Custom (factory enhanced LCP), which can be had for $200 or less. This is a DAO trigger with a long, heavy pull--which is good for self-defense, and makes for a safe carry piece, potentially even outside a holster. Other decent DAO 380s include the Remington RM380 and S&W Bodyguard 380.

A little bit further down on the totem pole you've got the Taurus TCP and Beretta Pico, but these seem to have a higher occurrences of QC trouble, or ammo-pickiness.
