The bottom line is that almost everyone who carries a .380 does so for convenience and to be frank that is the worst reason to carry a CCW. CCW's are meant to save life which entails far more than just convenience. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.
Not trying convince anyone, carry whatever you think you need to. I'm comfortable with my decision. I do agree with you that there is a middle ground between being armed to the max and carrying a mini 380.
