There are all sorts of idioms that reference size. I am sure we are all familiar with a great deal of them. “Try that on for size.” “Cut someone down to size.” “Bigger is better.” However, today we are interested in tackling a different size-related idiom. “Good things come in small packages.”
The idiom usually holds true. More often than not, the size of an item is not indicative of its quality. Nor does the small stature of an item make it inherently inferior to a bigger, comparable item. Sure, there are times when bigger items are better. While I would almost always prefer a large pizza to a personal pizza, the quality of each is likely identical. I am currently in the market for a new vehicle, and you had better believe that gas prices have me carefully considering fuel economy, and thus a smaller car. In fact, smaller items are often preferable to larger items for any number of reasons. I could go on and on with examples. I am sure you would love nothing more than to sit here all night and read those examples, but today there is really only one that matters – the Hellcat .380 pistol.
The Hellcat .380 pistol is a polymer-framed, semi-automatic striker-fired pistol that utilizes a short recoil operation. As if the name did not give it away, the Hellcat is chambered for .380 ACP cartridges and accepts 6-round box magazines, giving the pistol a “6+1” capacity. If you are still wondering why the Hellcat is a perfect example of the aforementioned idiom, perhaps I forgot to mention that it is a subcompact pistol and weighs just under half a pound when empty – ideal for concealed carry and personal protection. In other words, this small package packs quite a punch. Accessories include one magazine, trigger lock and a soft nylon case.
If you are looking for an affordable alternative to the comparable Ruger LCP, look no further than the Hellcat .380 pistol. This small pistol is available for the small price of $245.
In keeping with the theme of good things and small packages, I will try to keep the description brief. However, anyone can see that the size of my descriptions is never something that affects their superior artistry. In any case, many of you will be enthused to find out that the Hellcat .380 pistol is made right here in the United States (the Hellcat is machined in Monroe, North Carolina by Inter Ordnance). With that, let’s jump into the specifications.
The Hellcat .380 pistol features a slide that has been machined from solid steel, heat-treated and nickel plated, which not only protects the slide from corrosion and pitting but also provides the pistol with a bi-tone look. As noted, the frame is made from a tough polymer that lends to the lightness of the pistol. A versatile pistol, the Hellcat boasts an overall length of 5.16 inches, a width of .82 inches and a height of 3.60 inches – all lending to its easy concealment. The pistol also has a barrel that measures 2.75 inches in length and weighs only 9.40 ounces when unloaded. Other features include fixed sights and a “loaded chamber” window for visual inspection of the chamber. As noted, each Hellcat .380 pistol comes with one stainless steel 6-round magazine, a trigger lock and a soft nylon case.
Is .380 ACP the best round for self-defense and concealed carry? No, it is not. However, not all firearms chambered for .45 ACP are as easily concealed as the Hellcat .380 pistol – making it a perfect choice as a concealed carry pistol for personal protection. It would also serve well as a backup arm for law enforcement officers. The truth is that this is a reliable pistol that is easily handled by both men and women of all ages and when used with a heavy grain, hollow point bullet, is surely capable of saving a life or two. Consider the Hellcat for:
- Law Enforcement
- Personal protection and self-defense
