I am not saying that a Kahr and Walther are not good firearms in fact they are very good, but as I said mine is pretty much designated as a truck glove compartment gun both the walther and the kahr are at least in my area 500 plus US dollars. The Bersa I walked out the door 348 US dollars. It is not the best round by far and I know its limitations, that is why I got the 15 rounder vs the 7 round version less power just means I put more rounds down range. Accompanied with good shot placement I do not feel undergunned in normal everyday life. You are correct in stating there are not many variations of loads for this round but knowing it limitations means that you do not need a lot of different loads. I think the KISS method works well here I use Speer ball to increase penetration and there are many European manufacturers such as wolf and bear that make them. I think Remmington and Corbon also has a line of .380 ammunition with Corbon being the absolute best if you can find any of it. Not one seller in my area carries Corbon products. I have not seen a box of Corbon ammunition since I lived in North Carolina. Somebody send me a box.
