I do love these caliber wars.
I don't understand why people consider the .380 anemic when Nazis and police in europe have been pretty successful with the round.
Heck some 50 years ago people didn't have problems with .32S&W longs and .32acp as police and defensive rounds.
Its all about shot placement.
Like G26239 mentioned the size difference between a .380 pocket gun like the LCP and a .38snubbie or a compact 9mm is VERY signicant.
You are more likely to ALWAYS be armed with a small .380 pocket gun. Better have a gun than not.
