Yeesh, I cannot find any .380 ammo. I know I have some around here somewhere. [wanders off muttering]

Finally found it! So much for my organizational skills. At least it was 4 boxes.

DKC, you made me go check the closet where my jacketed non-CAS ammo is stored, to see what I had in .380.  Got my first gun in '98 (late bloomer) which was an aluminum framed Hungarian FEG copy of a Walther PP, in .380.  Shot it at the range once, then qualified for my concealed carry with it, and I don't think I shot it again.  You'd think a person would want to keep their first gun, but it really was crappy and I got an awesome trade-in at a gun show on a .22 Diamondback.  Anyway, haven't had a .380 since though I keep thinking of getting one to replace my Keltec .32 for pocket/ankle carry.  But back to the .380 ammo.  Found two boxes I got in '98.  Price tags still on box, Winchester SXT, box of 20.  There's still 17 in the box because the FEG would not feed them.  Price on box: $9.23.  Also a 50-count box of PMC FMJ for $12.30.  << Sigh >>  Seemed high at the time.  :)

Yup, on the prices! .380 seems to run almost.45ACP price around here, always has. I do like the Keltecs, good little guns, carried a PF9 for a long time as my CCW. That was a rowdy little beast.
My first Mauser HSc would not feed anything except FMJ stuff, so far this one is good with FMJ, haven't tried anything else through it yet.
If that little Hungarian is the one I am thinking of, yeah buddy, that is a horrible trigger.
