I have the little black label 380 and love it. It’s one of my favorite pistols,and I have many. It fits those of us with smaller hands and is as accurate as any of the modern m and p or Glock or wather or CZ or Ruger or FN and ND so on. And with a good hallow point it will do what u need it to if you have the skills. Remember it’s not too much off of the ballistics of the 9mm. As far as self defense I know it just takes that one time but rely on… Read more »

Thank you for your service, MS, and welcome to the site.

I have no complaint about how good the Browning weapons are but for the average guy, like me, they are way out of the line of affordability. I have a Kimber 45 that I bought used and I can keep my shots inside 4 inches at 25 yards. Didn’t spend even close to what a Browning would have cost me.

Lloyd, No criticism. It depends upon what you want the pistol for, and also what you are comfortable shooting. For example: If you are a “plinker” and just want to shoot tin cans and targets, the .22 makes a lot more sense as ammo is cheaper. If you are recoil sensitive, or just don’t want a large caliber it makes sense too. Most people don’t rely upon a .22lr for their primary self-defense pistol, but they have advocates as well. These .380’s (also known as 9mm short in Europe) are a step up from the .lower calibers are on the… Read more »

Would be nice to have one to go to the range and relieve some stress on the cheap!

I like Browning’s all their products are great. I do not own any 380s and it’s going to take severe arm twisting for me to consider getting one. I am not yet convinced that it serves any of my needs, now that’s just me, I have friends that have several of them and love them. I would rather have a 22lr than a 380, what do you guys think ? Ready for criticism and stand to be corrected.

I bought a Black Label in .380 for the wife. She just loves it. She was enlisted when it was the Women’s Army Corp and stayed in for 22 years, so she was familiarized with the 1911 configuration. I put up a series of four steel plates backed by an old stump 25 yards off the back porch for her convenience. She loves that, too. Finally, she is wielded to the concept of shooting a thing until it stop moving. It the thing suffers during the first six poorly placed nonlethal hits and sustains a couple of later lethal hits,… Read more »

I’ve had a PPK/S in .380 for a few years. It drops nicely into my back pocket when I hit the local rivers and ponds for some ‘worm drowning’. Light, all stainless, comfortable, and reliable.
James Bond couldn’t be wrong? Right?

My main carry is a Taurus 380. I pack it in a pocket holster and is quite comfortable. I don’t think I’d carry anything less than a 22 wmr, and that only as a backup.
