I had a BG380 that I still like. It kicks a little but after putting a Pachmyer sleeve grip on it is manageable. My wife got her chcl and a gave it to her and I graduated to a Sig P938. It is almost as small and the larger caliber makes me feel more manly. It is a great carry gun and I love it. I don't have issues with the .380 caliber but bigger is better
The $700.00 price tag stings a little but it is worth it IMHO.
