What features does this gun have that appealed to you?             

It’s lighter weight, fits my hand, but the main reason I purchased this particular gun was because I can easily work the slide.

Tell us about shooting this gun.

Unfortunately, after firing 2-3 times, the next bullet hangs.  The gun is cleaned before using each time and we’ve tried bullets from other manufacturers with the same results. We’ve always had exceptional Browning firearms, but I’m disappointed with my 380.  Any suggestions that we can try?

How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?             

Everything is just the way I want it, except for the bullet hanging as related above.

How reliable is it?           

Not reliable as stated above. This is my preferred gun…if only, see above.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?    

We have tried bullets from other manufacturers, problem with hanging persists.

Does the gun have any specific ammunition requirements? If so, please explain:             

Not any that we’re aware of.

What do you dislike about shooting this gun, if anything?           

I like everything about this gun…except as listed above

Was it easy to take down and clean?     


Would you recommend this gun?            


For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them? 

Maybe I got the only one with a problem as Browning makes excellent firearms.

Anything else you would like to share about the gun?   

Perfect except for that one thing, and unfortunately, it’s important.

    We had the same issue. It seems to be an ammo manufacturing problem. See the forum website below. We changed and very few feed problems now.
