    I would tend to go for the Browning/FN BDA. GunsAmerica has a nice one available as their number 976122311.

    I love any good weapon with John Browning's touch on it!!

    IF I were to get a .380, I would probably go with the SIG.

    I'll stay with my FEG PA63. Looks like a Walther but is lighter because of the aluminium frame. :D

    22WRF and I have the same gun, the Llama III-A. It's a 2/3 scale copy of the Colt Government Model.....a real cutie and a sweet little shooter.

    I do have one .380. A Colt MK IV- Series 80, government model, but I wasn’t looking for it, when it found me. ;) :D

    My other choice, since I have seen a couple of what I call "REAL HONEYS", would be a Colt Mustang. It's small, compact, concealable and would make a fine pocket/back-up weapon.

    I had a Makarov in .380 that was very nice. All steel and a nice double action trigger. the Browning BDA is also a nice gun and used to come with 13 round clips.

    Being a 1911 fan, I do love the mustang. But every time i pick up one of those beretta's(which are similiar to the browning design).... the x-ring seems to disappear really quick like......
    Can't take anything away from my Makarov(9x18), its just not a .380. (9x17)

    Mmmmm. I sure do like the looks of the Mustang. Thanks Marlin. Now the problem will be finding one.

    My personal pick is an American Walther PPK-S, in stainless, built in Gadsen, Alabama. Flat, easy to conceal, accurate and (now) totally reliable.

    That's easy.
