DiamonDback Firearms Triple pockeT proTecTors in roy HunTingTon Diamondback’s DB series is made up of the DB380 (top and bottom) and DB9 in the center. either model can be had with several optional finishes. Groups from either the DB9 or DB380s tended to be around 3" to 4" at 12 yards (shown above), regardless of the ammo used. 9mm& . 380 acp D i a m o n d b a c k ’s D B 3 8 0 and DB9 really are tiny. I mean, not just “these are a handy size” type small, but “Oh man, can you really build ’em that small and have them work?” The answer is yes, you really can build them that small, and yes, again, they really do work. While we all have visions of never being without our all-steel 5" 1911, regardless of weather or dress, the reality is, um … not. Unless you’re a working cop or a die-hard CCW person, most of us tend to try to find a middle of the road someplace. And while our own Clint Smith certainly says carrying a handgun should be comforting, not comfortable, takedown is fast, like a Glock. here we’ve shucked the slide and bits from the frame of the DB9. Simple to do and shows the basic makeup of the guns. 62 WWW.AMERICANHANDGUNNER.COM • NOVEMBER/DECEMBER2012
