    Barrel is too short for target work and the velocities I wouldn't think are that hot, even with +p ammo (if you can feed 'em a steady diet of it with their small frames) I'm guessing a defensive round would mushroom, but the closer the better.

    I'd like to someday own a few (Walther PPK/S, Beretta and the SIG) but they'd probably just wind up as expensive plinkers.

    Don't sell the 380 short. close to 38 spl. Also a PPK/S is a nice pocket or IWB carry and plenty accurate.(was issued to Ky. State Police at one time for off duty and back up) Their is no offical +P in 380. Corbon 90gr HP is 1050fps and 220ftlbs.
    I still waiting on a offical police report that shows after BG takes 2 to chest he went on to hurt shooter. No my brothers friend had a 5th cousin that knows a guy who shot a 90lb BG 37 times with a 380 and didn't stop him. I want real proof. I'm sure been case but I haven't found one yet.

    The thing about gun ownership and self-defense is that there are literallly millions of possible scenarios. However, when it comes down to your life, I see no reason not to stack the odds in your favor, and that usually means newer technology that can be had in a number of very small packages today, such as a G26.

    I dont think anyone will argue with that ,but ya cant just dimiss the 380 as a pop gun when a 22 can kill ya too if someone can place their shot well.I wouldnt carry a 22 for Self defense but I wouldn't blink at the 380 for it,I just happen to have a 3" 1911 that fills that slot right now

    Well, that's been my point all along - you own a .380 but carry a .45.

    In an emergency, any gun is better than no gun ('pop-gun' was a Foghorn Leghorn reference nobody got (sigh)), but if you have a choice... Personally, if I carried (and I don't) it would be a 9mm with a nasty load because I prefer the greater capacity. But back to the .380... sure, it can be fatal, so can a knife, but you wouldn't carry a 6" bowie in lieu of a handgun. Carrying concealed is an act of serious intent, and even though I'm in the placement camp (vs. displacement), I don't see the .380 being serious enough.

    Handguns - just .357mag and .45ACP, but soon will be looking for a good 9mm auto for a range and plinking gun...maybe a new Para Tac Five?

    Shotgun - just one; a Remington 870 Express with deer barrel, loaded with 3" mag #4 buck. When I was an avid bird, waterfowl, turkey and deer hunter, I had a collection of beautiful shotguns...over and unders, side by sides, pumps and autos.
    But I quit hunting about 10 years ago and sold almost all of them off except the deer gun. And I only use it now for HD. I'm a life-long blues and jazz guitar player, got into street rodding several years ago, and more recently got into Harleys, so interest in hunting was just kind of sqeezed out and it faded away.
    However, my interest in handguns is exploding (excuse the pun) partly because it was always kind of simmering in the background and partly because of an incident with a very seriously disturbed neighbor who's currently undergoing treatment (I'll just leave it at that for now).

    Rifle - again, just one. A Remington Nylon 66 .22 auto with scope.

    Sorry, didn't mean to momentarily hijack the thread.

    7.65mm (don't ask)
    380
    38
    357
    9mm
    40 S&W
    45 ACP

    While it makes trips to Walmart interesting, and trips to the gun store for SD ammo expensive, I like having lots of different calibers to shoot. FWIW, the 7.65 is an old pre WWII German pistol that I will never shoot, so maybe it's cheating to list it.
