Just picked one up a week ago. I was a bit concerned buying a pistol from a new company but brought it home anyway. I had looked at all the other offerings from Ruger, Taurus, SIG and KelTec and chose the DB380 because of its similar operation to a Glock. Fit and finish is much more refined than the Taurus or the KelTec which is another reason I chose this pistol. Though I have not put the suggested 200 rounds of ammo through it for break-in I did get a chance to fire a few (18 rounds) through it and here are my findings: Remington White Box: 12 out of 12 fired, no failures of any type Franklin gun Shop Ammo (Gunn Ammunition): Cant say for sure if it was the ammo, the gun or the shooter (my dad shot these rounds) but he experienced 3 failures to fire, one hard primer misfire one stove pipe and one failure to return to battery. 12 rounds of Remington white box is by no means a full test, but for a new pistol right out of the box that many say has problems I did not experience any problems with this type of ammo. Recoil is very controllable due to the larger grip and pistol is very accurate fired from a distance of about 20 feet (all of my shots hit an 8" diameter Gatorade powder container. Based on my limited testing I would not hesitate to suggest a closer look at this pistol for carrying. I will update this thread as I break-in the pistol. For those who own a KelTec, it maybe of interest to know that this pistol uses the same magazine design and it will interchange. The serial number of my DB380 is the "ZC" series, it appears the "ZX" are the ones that experienced the most problems.
