    the idea of a .380 ACP revolver seems to be a solution to a problem that didn't exist. I get it for the .45ACP being used in the .45 Colt revolvers in WW1 and WW2- .45ACP was plentiful, moon clips allowed it to be used efficiently in revolvers. STILL didn't address the SLOW reloading issue, but moon clips helped. So, why a .380 revolver? You can get a .38 revolver and shoot short .38 S&W in it.. Maybe .38 Colt... What is next a .25ACP revolver?

    380 is the cartridge with the most market share growth right now. For the last (iirc) ten years or so, it has increased in sales faster than any other round. That's why Taurus makes this revolver.

    If you want something smaller than an M85 without going to a tiny caliber, the 380 revolver makes a lot of sense. A View is smaller, as the comparison photo in this article shows, but honestly unless you put a bigger grip on it the View is a novelty, not a real defensive tool. And they aren't making more Views. The M380 is a good defensive tool out of the box. Yes, moon clips are different. I'm sure a little practice would take care of that.

    I'd like to have one; one of these days...

    They should. The way Taurus does their grips is for small frame or large frame revolvers. That revolver looks to have the current standard small frame rubber grip on it, the same as all their other small frame revolvers like the 85 and 605.

    Glad you like the new revolver, OP! I thought about one, but just couldn't find a need for it as I've got a few 380 autos already and am happy with the 38 and 357 revolvers I have. Are you able to buy extra moon clips for it?
