  • My new Micro Carry

    .


    My new Micro Carry. It was $445 and I talked them down to $399. Everywhere else in the Twincities is either out of them or never had them in stock.


    I purchased some Winchester Bonded PDX1 95 grain JHP's Personal Protection loads for $15 (box of 20).


    Is that a good round?






    I hope to pick up an extra mag for it soon.

    Nice toy! make sure you try out few different types of ammo and take it out to the range for the test run.

      I also purchased some Herter's International Select Grade steel case non-corrosive ammo for it from Cabelas.


      Is that ammo ok to shoot through it?

        Not really sure about the steel case ammo as I usually stay away from them (except 7.62X39 for my SKS and AK) as some manufacturers used to (or might still do) void warranty.

        Since your toy is fairly new to the market, I haven't had the pleasure handling one, so I can't say what would work or not, so your best bet is to refer to manufacturer's manual and see if they have any recommendation/restriction on ammunition.

        Usually, in .380, Winchester white box or American Eagle/Federal work well as practice ammo. As to personal defense round, Corbon, Winchester, Federal all make great quality stuff. Just make sure you try as many types of ammo to see there is no issue with functioning of your gun.

          Noticed that the retail on this gun is $399. Shouldn't that make it cheaper in local gun stores?

            Also, for anyone who owns one of these, is it supposed to come with a soft case?




            Because mine didn't.

              We have it marked at $399 but we'll take it to $379 if need be. It's a new gun and plenty of people are willing to pay the premium to get one.

                Do you remember when Ruger LCP came out to the market? Most shops were out of stock and those few who had them listed them at MSRP and sold plenty of them. Supply and demand my friend.

                As to steel case ammo, I try not to shoot them due to some of my guns have warranty that would be voided if I did shoot steel cased ammo out of them. Also, due to lacquer coating of steel casing, you can potentially run into an issue if your gun is not properly maintained (if you search it on search engine, you'll find plenty of malfunction caused by steel case ammo). I only use steel case ammo for my commie guns like SKS and AK, but not on my AR or any other guns for that matter. It's just my personal preference, but some of my colleagues swear by steel case ammo and they have not had much issues with them. At the same time, some of my colleagues and students have encountered significant amount of malfunctions due to ammo. So, it's really personal preference.

                  LAPD just approved that and the LCP for us to use as off duty and back ups. The Academy store has been sold out of LCP's since day 1, they have a surplus of the BG and marked them down to $279 out the door after taxes and DOJ fees.

                  My name is on the list for the LCP as I have not heard great things on the BG, also LAPD does not approve of laser sights so if we buy one the armory has to "deactivate" the laser (aka take out the batteries)

                    So far I've purchased 2 pocket guns (LCP and a Kahr PM-9) and both of them needed a 200 round break in period, especially the Kahr. I would advise the same for you, 200+ rounds of FMJ's then try your different types of defensive ammo. If your gun is rated for it, try the Buffalo Bore line of +P's!

                      what made you decide to go with a .380? I just got a new BUG a 637 .38 special and love it, hardly can tell it's even on my vest. Only downside is only 5 rounds...

                        I just thought the BG .380 looked like a solid gun and I need a smaller gun to walk from my car to work mostly. I'll carry my 1911 for off-duty stuff.



                        I'm smaller, about 124lbs, so anything bigger is harder to fit in my pockets or I need a holster. I wanted a gun that didn't need a holster. Not that I think about it though, I wish I would have looked at a Ruger LC9 too. But this guns seems nice. I went to the range today, but it was packed. Hopefully get there on Wednesday.

                          Only reason i ask a lot of people have trouble with .380's when they try to qualify. The majority of our officers shoot Sig .380's but, I've noticed on more than one occasion them having failure to extract issues

                            See, now thas the type of gun I'm looking for. Unfortunately nothing that small comes in .40 cal which is what we are authorized to carry off duty. Good luck with it, very nice looking gun.
