I always said I would never get a .380, 9mm was the smallest caliber I would carry. That changed recently when I realized there were times I could not comfortably carry my MK9. So, I decided to get a pocket .380. I was going to wait until January to see what this 42 is all about, then I realized there is no way whatever it is will be as small and thin as a Kahr P380. So, I pick mine up from my FFL on Thursday. On a side note, I had no problem finding .380 ammo online at fair prices, both range and defensive carry.
