My favorite is the smith and wesson model 340.

But, as Chris Boyd comments in the Jan 2011 Law Officer Magazine...

Is a 22, 25 or 32 pistol better than a 38, 9mm, 40 or 45? It is better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it.

Personal choices are what the licensed permit holder has to make.

In last week’s Personal Defense television show Michael Blane had a small segment on the 32 and 380 semi autos. He commented that even with the increased ballistics on these cartridges the permit holder cannot be anywhere guaranteed a successful stop.

Instead of a successful stop, a wound shot to the abdomen or face may be what you have to settle for if you carry a 32 or 380 auto.

Your thoughts please
