Owned two kel-tec 380's for years never a problem. Listened to the wrong people and sold both and bought a new Ruger 380, Bad mistake. It had a recall It never functioned well did not trust it. I have been a police officer for over 28 years and I own many guns. If I don't trust it I will not keep it. Sold the Ruger bought two new Kel-Tec's buffed them a little and what do you know 100 rounds through each no problems and very accurate for a pocket pistol. Kel-Tec for life for me.
