Colt Govt .380 Auto - Range Report

Found my .380 Today!! Its been a long road with many obstacles (45 Colts) but I finally picked up
a .380 Im happy with and seems to be Reliable based on what ive read..

Its a 1989 Colt Govt /Series 80 in .380Cal
Picked it up on a TRADE, I gave up a Kimber Custom Target II 45ACP with some Custom parts.

The Kimber was nice but I already have 4 1911's which 3 are Colts . Never liked the Nitron finish on the Kimbers either.
This is what I traded minus the grips & holster (those Im keeping): I believe it was a good trade because both parties were happy
with their new pistols. And these 380 Govt.'s aren't as common as the Mustangs, first one Ive seen in person.

What do you guys think? Any .380 fans out there ? and would you have made the trade ??
The lighting in the shop was bad so it looks like the blueing is wasted but it looks better than it photographs . Just dirty as heck..

I shoot my Gov't model more than the Mustang, but both are reliable and fairly accurate.

The slide on the Gov't since new has been "loose", but doesn't seem to affect the functioning of the weapon. The Mustang slide is a much tighter fit. Kinda fond of the stainless finish myself, esp. down here in the humid southeast coast.
