I had a .380 S&W Sigma 3.5 inch barrel polymer a while back. Still wish I never parted.
I love the .380,.. it's a 9mm with less the amount of propellant.
Less muzzle flip. Too bad prices are a bit high.
You'd either be dead, or in an ICU if you were hit in any vital area
Don't listen so much to the bashing and/ or the hyping,....do your own testing, then make your conclusion.
