Okay, I have a friend that, after trying several calibers, has decided on a .380(she didn't even care for a 9mm....she's set on .380). She has fallen in love with my Russian Makarov in .380, but all that we can find is a Mak in 9x18. The ammo is harder to find than .380, so we are also looking at a Bersa Thunder (more in her price range) or a Walther PPK/S (a little above her price range but not impossible). Is there anything else in the same proximity of weight/overall size/caliber/price that we should also be considering. Price is a factor, but not the only deciding factor....but no $1000.00 guns. I should also add that she did like the Makarov being a DA/SA weapon (probably a purse carry situation here). Also...no revolvers...just her preference.
