    Hello from Columbia, SC

    I'm Frank and new to the Glock Family. I have a Glock 42 that was given to me as a Christmas gift from my mom. It's my first 380 and while I'm used to larger rounds, I figured I'd give it a try. Any advice on the gun would be appreciated!

    Welcome.
    I would try Starfire in it, or something like that. That is a very small gun, and the design of the bullet, will aid in expansion.
    If you shoot FMJ, it can stop a man and give good penetration too. But, I would try some advanced design HP in it.

    If you use something like this Winchester bullet below, you may end up with the guy being on you. If that happens, let him have it, in the temple if needed.
    Yes, I know that I sound brutal, but bad things happen.
    Don't waste you shots, if a man or dog wants to bite a chunk of your ass off, they will get close enough for you to kill them.

    Stand back about 25 feet, and shoot a paper target, to find out how your gun patterns. It may have very good accuracy, and you won't know until you check it.
    I think that you could have a lot of fun with it. Your mom is a gem of a girl, because she bought the gun for you.

    Well then, that wuz an extended welcome if I say so myself.
