I thought it would be interesting to compare statistics on some of the .380 "mouse guns" available.

I have a Grendel P-12 that I've had for some years. It's like the Kel-Tec P38T (made by the predecessor company), but it has a double stack magazine. (11 in the magazine, 1 in the chamber, hence "P-12"). It's always shot anything I've fed it, regardless of bullet type. The only problem is that it whacks the hell out of my middle finger with every round, so practise is definitely not fun, but with a .380 you MUST practise so that you can put the bullet where you want it, since it's a low energy round. Even double stack, it has less width than a revolver, so it stows away very well, and you have 12 rounds without a reload. Very light trigger pull (DAO), but a very strong recoil spring. That makes reassembly a pain in the ass, since you have to insert the pin back in the frame and barrel, & there's no slide hold open, so the recoil spring fights you. Very inexpensive - I paid around $130 for it new, maybe 10-12 years ago, but it always goes bang, with any ammo I've ever fed it. I'm NOT saying that everybody should rush right out & buy one!
