    You need to go to a woodworker supplier. Try Rockler.Com. I know they have cane hardware but a cane is two thick for your purposes. Possibly pen hardware would work. Good luck

    If I were you I would check out a kel-Tex pf9. In my book it’s a great little gun. I’ve put close to 5000 rounds through mine with zero issues And it’s a 9 not a 380 and surprisingly accurate for a small gun. If you’re dead set on a 380 or...

    Personally I don’t recommend a progressive press or even a Turret press for someone who is new to reloading. I think you need to use a single stage press before you use Either a progressive or a Turret press. By learning on a single stage you learn...
