I thought this was interesting for those into the 1911 auto. Might be a bit large for the purpose. The word "this" is a video link for those who didn't notice.

Re: Any personal experience with Accu Tek 380 ACP

The only thing I've got in 380 is a Beretta 84F. I find most 380's a bit irritating with sharp recoil mostly due to the manufacturer's need to build them as blow-back operated pistols. They would probably be funner to shoot in a locked breach gun.
