The .380, otherwise known as the 9mm Kurtz, will always be a popular cartridge for concealed carry. Guns are just less snappy than with the 9mm, and a less powerful gun that you will shoot and will carry is always better than a more powerful gun that you won’t shoot and carry.
That was the thinking with the new SCCY doublestack .380. They already make a small doublestack 9mm that has gained a decent name for itself, especially when you factor in cost. So it was a natural addition to add the lower powered, and less intimidating .380 to the line.
SCCY has a really good warranty policy. The gun is always covered, no matter how many times it has changed hands and no matter who owns it. That translates to good resale value, because the company understands that often you’ll start with an inexpensive gun and move up to a more robust platform after you’ve done some shooting.
Hopefully we’ll get one of these new .380s in for testing when it is ready to come to market. That gun at the booth was not even a prototype yet, so April is probably ambitious. Meanwhile, try the 9mm maybe. If you are looking for an entry level gun, the SCCY is not a bad option. The CPX-1 has a manual safety. The CPX-2 does not. Other than that they are pretty the same doublestack 10+1 9mm, in a whole bunch of colors.
