    Watched the video afterward and realized that I left my eyes and ears on the table. I also noticed at one point I actually put my hand over the muzzle. Very stupid mistakes.

    Wow thanks for the video! I didn't think it would be so reliable.

    I have seen mixed reports...many leaning towards 50+ rounds is where the problems start. I want one......well I want one that is reliable. It fits the hand so nice and is light, slightly heavier than the LCP(less than one full ounce I believe).

    Other than reports the one thing I really dislike is how the front sight is retained, very cheap imo. But at least the sight picture is nice. The hump on the grip seems to push the barrel to a low point of aim(training issue).

    The Keltec and Ruger 380's don't fit my hands for beans, feels very unnatural.

    Besides the negative reports the lack of ammo is a bummer, I just can't decide. I am willing to go through some growing pains with the DB only if it is ultimately reliable.


    EDIT: I also wonder given time if someone could come up with a trigger that is glock like for it.

    Thanks for the vid.

    How about a little info on the sights? Are they non-existant like on the Kel-Tec and LCP or are they more like Sigs 380?

    the DB may be the ultimate 380.

    I purchased one of these at the local gun show on Jan 3rd and after firing 100 rounds through it there was an issue with misfeeding after firing the first round. The folks there at Diamondback were great and replaced the slide for me and no issues since. Good weapon with little recoil and great shot group.

    Wonderful video...very accurately shows the capabilities of the weapon.
