To me, a 1911 in .380 would be a waste....if you're going to conceal carry something that large, might as well have a larger caliber for sure, and if you're going to open carry, still might as well have a larger caliber. I don't know about your area, but .380 ammo is getting really expensive...... PPk's are nice, old, or new, but I don't like the weight, or the trigger, personally...not to say that they are a bad firearm, just my tastes.......won't comment on the P232..don't know enough about it........I carry a S&W Bodyguard, because it's small, I can carry with a desantis holster, it's light enough, and I have fired it enough to trust it. Is it the most accurate.....no, but I do not intend to get into firefights with it, it is for close quarters only, and for that, I trust it.......just got rid of my Beretta 84fs, nice firearm, but too bulky for carry, and I just wasn't accurate enough with it. I am slowly fazing myself away from .380....it's just getting too pricey, and it's more enjoyable for me, to shoot larger calibers. The Bodyguard's, and the LCP's, and other such models are small in the hand, and take some getting used to, and lots of practice, and even then, they are for 12 yds. or less, in my opinion. I will keep my BG .380, but it will be the only one I own going forward. Other larger caliber firearms in the compacts, are still too difficult to shoot accurately. Like everyone else, I am still waiting for the perfect firearm, but I won't hold my breath....that's why alot of people own more than one firearm, for more than one application.
