I was watching a couple of videos on YouTube about the Diamond Back DB380 and was really impressed with what I saw.

Is ths pistol a true pocket pistol?

Anyone here have any experience with them?

I had an early model. It was a complete pos. Traded it for an LCP and never looked back.

My only experience with one was a newbie at the range who was really proud of his new pistol and wanted me to try it. Fit and finish were sub-par. Trigger was long, heavy, and gritty. Had two failures in the first five rounds. Struggled to keep the shots on the paper at about five yards. I was completely unimpressed.

To be sociable, I offered him the chance to shoot the Glock 26 and Beretta 92 that I had with me at the time. His satisfaction with his purchase diminished quite a bit, and I felt kind of bad for him.
