. Ha. Randy but in all honesty I would not be afraid to use .380 for SD. ANY gun is better than NO gun.

[QUOTE=Shawn6518;13045306]Water Dr,
thanks for that review/comparison on the ez. I will definitely have her check out the .380 and the 9. She really likes the Taurus g2c 9mm. I have one and she likes the way it shoots but the slide is still a tad tough. Her Glock is "ok" for her as far as recoil. But the slide is again too tight. My concern on the ez is how do they do with 500-1000 rounds thru them? I know what "soft" springs do in a 1911 especially over time as round count goes up. I know I can replace recoil springs as they wear, but how premature will soft springs wear? And no I don't mind more often maintenance for my wife's peace of mind of having self defense tools that she's comfortable with.[/QUOTE

The EZ is really much easy to operate. I think she will be attracted to that. As to spring wear, I don’t know. Most people that own these probably don’t put gobs off rounds through them. But periodically checking a spring and having one as a backup on hand is probably a good idea. Cheap too.

Water Dr, true. She wouldn't put thousands of rounds through it. But we do try to put at least 50 rounds a month through our EDC to keep our proficiency up and keep the mags from sitting full for months on end. (I know that's a touchy subject too. Lol). Then we have our "fun guns" that we put way more lead down range with. I may pick up an ez for her to try. If she doesn't like it, I can always add it to my rotation of EDC or a "borrow gun" if friends want to shoot while under my supervision.

My wife has the 380 EZ PC. Loves it and shoots it very well. We tried all sorts of guns. 365, 911, my shields, etc... she is just most comfortable racking the EZ.

As to the issues on other forums about stove pipes, FTE's and such. She had those issues in the first 100 rounds. Since then there has only been one issue and she says it was her not the gun. 650 rounds through it now with one session of 250 rounds. I was trying to get it to fail. It didn't.

So it is the gun she is comfortable with and is confident with.

And I don't know of any bad guy asking what caliber it is before deciding to to do bad things.
