Well i sold my P3AT and swore off mouse guns. I was going to carry my bigger guns cause I can, and I have no concealemt problems. Then I hurt my back, so guess what, I have another new .380.

Its a DB380 and I like it, well see after I shoot it, but it's supposed to be a winner. I am ready to fire it, maybe this weekend.

Those Diamond Back .380s look cool! I would love to hear how it works out for you.

I recently got that Crossbreed minituck for my LCP and have found it very comfortable - between using the Crossbreed and pocket carrying I find that I carry more often now. Also find that I will use the LCP as a BG when carrying a larger caliber as my primary carry. I NEVER had a backup gun before having the little .380!!!

I know exactly what you mean.
I started out with the Keltec PF9, then decided it was too bigg to fit in my pocket without leaving a print.
So I went to the P3AT (pronounced P380 of course) and I have carried it ever since.
Then I thought I'd like ot have something more substantial, and if I'm going to carry something bigger than a small .380 I will have to put it in a holster of some kind.
Well if I'm going to futz with a holster I may as well carry a Glock and if I'm going to carry a Glock it may as weel be a G27.

Now I'm back to where I began. . . . :shock:


I've seen several people speak very highly of the Diamondbacks. So much so that I've looked them over at a gunshow.

After you've shot it some and carried it a while, I'd be very interested in hearing about it.

I have gone back to the .380 again. I had a little Sig P238...We shot it a lot...I loved it, then, I traded it off.

I finally traded for another one. Now I am back in the .380 game and I will keep this little Sig...

Well, I have some good and bad news about the DB380. It shoots like a dream, the recoil is tame compared to the P3AT I had. The problem is that it's not reliable. I havent had much chance to shoot it, but I finally put it through a break in and I couldn't get it to reliably strip off the first round, and sometimes it would not strip off rounds after firing and ejecting. I also had a few instances when the trigger did not reset fully.

I will be calling them monday. I have heard they have good CS, so I unfortunately will be finding out.

On the other hand, I bought a TCP today, I love the feel. I'll post more once I shoot it.

I had the same problem with my LCP. I sent it back to ruger and now it is perfect. They replaced the barrel cause it came back not painted like when it left.

Bummer to hear about a firearm not functioning correctly, especially if it is for CCW use. Hope either the factory tweaking or the new option works out for you!

The DB380 has been sent back to Cocoa Beach for repair. I'll keep you all updated about the Customer Service experience.

Got my DB380 back and it *drumroll* WORKS! Great response, quick turnaround, shot it yesterday and its working like a dream.

TCP is still breaking in, but its a keeper too.
