Despite the lack of .380 ammo and just how expensive it is to obtain it these days, manufacturers are setting a standard for micro-compact pistols and their choice of caliber is the .380 ACP. We have seen a few impressive models hit the market but none have been as intriguing as the new DB380 from Diamondback Firearms. Sporting what many consider a “Glock-like” design, this new 6+1 pistol is not only impressively designed and much more pleasant to shoot, but of higher quality than most other options on the market.
When it comes to choosing a handgun reliable enough for daily carry, most tend to stick to established and respected manufacturers. While this is what most should normally do, every now and then you have a new company that introduces a handgun that is a bit out of the norm and at least worth some research and consideration. Heck, I’m personally one who would give them a chance, as I have had nothing but good luck doing so. For example, my very first handgun years ago was the Para P10-45. Mind you, this was a company that, at the time, was known for their paintball guns and of much ridicule. However, when they introduced the P10-45 that made the front cover of many magazines, I already knew this would be my first handgun. In fact, it is still in my possession and I simply will not part with it. Why? Well, after roughly 1200 rounds through this pistol, I have never had a single issue with it, nor have I ever sent it back to the manufacturer. Anyways, my point here is that new doesn’t necessarily mean bad. The new pistol featured in this article is just another example.
