anybody ever shot one or handled one. Is there any way to get them into america?

No, and no, but why would you want to? It's exactly the same size as the 19/23/32. Why would you want a .380 in a 9mm (and up) sized pistol, unless you're in a location that bans civilian use of military calibers?

You'd better not say you want one because you can't handle a 9mm's recoil!

They don't have enough points for import.

just curious in the unattainable. Kinda like looking at a mp5 for real. i know i can't have one but would like to.

I think my wife would shoot the starch out of it.

Can you buy them in Germany or other parts of Europe? What are points of import? basically saying theres not enought intrest?

yea that 9mm recoil is tough maybe they have a 25C for the future...j/k

I don't get it. 9mm's, .40's, .45's 10mm's, but not .380's? why would the point system make a difference from the others?

Never try to apply too much logic to gun laws.

Seems like all you'd need to convert a 19/23/32 to a 25 would be a mag, recoil spring assembly, and barrel, but the 25 and 28 are blowback operated so I think that complicates matters and will at least add the slide assy. to the price tag.

I recently attended a Glock Armorers course, Intrsuctor said the same thing. Not Enough Points. They are illegal to import into the United States, that includes smuggling.!

One shot, One kill!

There are some 9x21 Glocks in Europe as well.

what is a 9x21 sounds interesting

I have fired a 25, the difference in recoil compared to a 26 is not that noticeable.

It's just a longer 9x19 case. Was hot in IPSC a while back so that everyone could make major in the P9s.

There has been a Glock 380 upper or two I believe for sale on strueweher.com for some time. IIRC started at $1000+ (rare he says) and last I saw was down to $500. Do a search over there and get in touch with him if you are interested.
