    Thought you were avoiding the weekend crowd at the range? Fiocchi is one of my favorite brands . I have a case of the FMJ for practice . Amazon and Ebay have some good values in holsters and related things . I got some good prices for flashlight mounts and rings and rail mounts on ebay .

    That's a lot of ammo . You should reload . Would you recommend Freedom's XTP loading for self defense load ? Lately I have been just keeping FMJ in the LCP . No particular reason other than I don't see much advantage in JHP in .380 . Could be wrong but who knows ?

    Good shooting, Dave. Do you practice weak hand shooting too? How is that rubber tape you put on the Bantam grip holding up? I'm suspicious that a patch like that, as opposed to wrapping the grip in tape like I've always done, will peel off. If it does peel and you really like it you could epoxy it back on I suppose.


    OK - now this, I think, is the stoopidest thing I've ever seen on a gun: On the barrel of my LCR is inscribed "READ INSTRUCTION MANUAL".

    If your strong hand is injured, or maybe shot, you wouldn't be able to shoot two handed or even one handed as usual, hence weak hand practice.

    How do they say - "as an absolute last resort read the instructions".

    Dave, keep us posted on how your one hand shooting experience is going. My right hand is not to bad, but the left hand needs a lot of work yet.

    Was there ever a question in your mind? The problem, of course, is finding a revolver that shoots at least 5 rounds of 9mm (or .38+P) and is as light and concealable as a micro .380 pistol. They simply don't exist. If I ever find one from a reputable manufacturer I'll buy it, stick in my pocket, and retire my LCP without so much as a fare thee well. Until then, the micro .380 pistol is here to stay.
