    I'm surprised at the popularity of the .380. 9mm catches so much crap (I don't agree that it should) you almost take for granted the .380's pop-gun status ("I'ma gonna pull your cork, son...")

    I'm curious at to what you use them for?

    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.

    How many calibers?

    I own a .25 ACP, but that is a keepsake, not a gun I shoot.

    I load and shoot, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .44 Special, .44 Magnum, .45 Colt, and, on occassion, .45 ACP.

    I have loaded .32 H & R Magnum, .41 Magnum, .44 Russian, and .45 AutoRim.

    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.
