Yes, it's dirty, but part of the "dirt" is actually a high temperature molydenum disulfide weapons lube.


I seldom carry this as a primary, but there are times when I stick it in my front pocket kind of like a spare billfold.

The laser isn't exactly sighted in; it's more there for the psychological impact. I carefully lined up front and rear sights, then moved the red dot so that it would appear on top of the front sight with the bullseye at ten feet.



So yeah, the guy with the Combat Commander sometimes has a little stinger in his pocket.

Howdy Mr. LelandRay,

To me there is simply nothing wrong with having a backup on you. One lives on me when I venture out into the world, unless just going to the mailbox or something like that, when it may become my primary. Maybe I just watched far too many westerns as a kid, who knows, lol. But I have often found myself carrying at least two when out and about.

never apologize for having a firearm...too many keyboard commandos that leave their guns (if they even have them) in the safe or at home but talk about their "hunting prowess."
Nice!

How is the Kal-Tech 380 to shoot? I opted for the 32cal version because the guy at the gun store said the 380 "bucked hard in the hand and was difficult to control" Does the weight of the laser reduce felt recoil?

twoguns, Ah, now I understand the origin of the name.

The laser helps a bit, but I think it's a matter of where the weight is, rather than the actual added weight.

Yes, it kicks, but it's not a target weapon, so you're not going to shoot it several hundred times in one day. Personally, I found it uncomfortable to shoot due to the rough edges inside the trigger guard and on the trigger itself, but a bit of fine sandpaper and a mostly worn out sanding drum on a Dremel took care of that issue.

Still, though, fifty rounds in a day is more than I want to shoot it, so I just go out and "familiarize" with a couple of magazines every once in a while, usually at ranges of from five to ten feet, seldom farther. I consider the .380 a last ditch, last chance, and last hope cartridge, so it's a secondary weapon after Plan A has fallen apart. (Plan A means shooting the guy with something big or something that shoots lots of holes in the target.)

Howdy folks,

Well Mr. Headhunter, kinda sorta I reckon sir. But usually when I was at work, I was in reality "threeguns". But my first supervisor in the office I transferred to in AZ tagged me with "twoguns" then I took off my jacket during a brief and he saw the matching pair of Sig P226 pistols. He simply forgot to check my ankle, and I did not want to upset him anymore than he already appeared to be because I was wearing two guns, lol.

Actually Mr. Jerry, in days past I owned a PPK/S in .380 that was my first undercover narcotics weapon. I eventually swapped it out for a Smith J frame. But at present the smallest handgun I own now is a Kahr K40 that is my boot/back up pistol these days. I am not sure that one would really qualify as a mouse gun.

But what I do appreciate is with all the various makes, models and calibers available, there is something out there to make every shooter smile. That is not a bad thing to me at all.

Not really too keen on DAO or plastic but the P3AT makes for a better dirty secret than a .25 and hides in all the same places.
