    Agree, however when someone does post info. on bench resting a pistol I do enjoy reading although my bench rest time is with target rifles.

    sure it may be fun IF you are just curious about accuracy but to me on a carry pistol it means nothing, I am interested in how it prints when the human factor is added in.
    Rifles and (target pistols) well yea I rest them and test for accuracy, specially rifles.

    I've only ever sandbag tested target guns, where it matters. Accuracy is almost irrelevant for self defense. In fact I can honestly say I've never seen a handgun so inaccurate that it wasn't suitable for self defense.

    My primary interest in shooting is not, and has never been, self-defense.

    I bought two 380's in the latter '80's, they were/are worlds apart, Browning BDA 380 and S&W Sigma 380, the BDA was great and the Sigma had a lot of warts. That caused me to buy a lot of pocket 380's looking for what I liked. I now have a full dozen pocket 380s including two G-42's (Cause the wife won't allow me to touch hers, unless it's dirty) and of course a Spectrum.. All are reliable or it/they would be at the factory. None have been.
    A Spectrum is my son's carry gun, I no longer carry 380's except at home, A Springfield 911 shoved my Colt Mustang XSP off the top. My 911 is my most accurate 380. All have redeeming qualities All mine go bang every time. Only my Kahr CW-380 has been picky with ammo, I just feed it what it likes.
    I like the spectrum, but it is barely in the top half of my pack. I will say the bargains are the RM-380 and the Spectrum.

    I agree completely! I find the 380 to be very accurate but as has been said they really shine in the larger guns. I have a lot of 380 pistols and to be honest the two that are my favorites are the Grand Power and the Beretta Cheetah. Both of these guns have a larger frame and combining that with the or low recoil of the 380 caliber give you a very accurate handgun. Both guns are considered expensive by most shooters, especially when compared with the small under $200 guns, so there are not a lot of them seen at the range.

    Both of the guns make a very nice carry package...

    Are we the only country dumb enough to start a second civil war because we are offended by the first one?

    Thanks for the info. I also am a stickler for accuracy. I've always used a barrel rest. Once with a TC Contender in 444 Marlin, I also rested the grip on the bench. After replacing the third grip screw, I learned my lesson.

    Knowing the actual accuracy of a gun certainly allows a shooter to know his shooting ability. I've seen articles in gun rags stating a guns accuracy. They were shooting off hand. I am convinced they wer only bragging about their shooting ability and did not represent the gun's accuracy.
