Ive never owned a .380 so I cannot comment on that part....but I think your last sentence pretty much sums it up. I absolutely LOVE my G26 and chose it as my dedicated carry gun almost all of the time. Glocks rock period!
This may sound outlandish and INSANE to those few who are not converted Glock fans yet....but Ive had my G26 for almost 3 years now and put roughly 3k rounds of mixed FMJ/JHP ammo through it. Now, I did buy it slightly used and never had a break in period but guess how many malfunctions Ive had since Ive owned the gun?
ZERO. Hand to god.
