    That's why I'm still not 100% sold on the .380 as the right choice.

    In most cases the site of the gun will cause the change of game plan required to remain in good health, but I'm not one to count on that to happen when it's my life. I could add the laser grips (as I did on my .45) to reinforce the "I've got you" concept. more money spent...

    I have a budget and I'd like to keep to it. So it's "bang for the buck" first, with small enough for summer carry
    with shorts and tees...

    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Most of the time it's my 1911-45ACP, on rare occasion my .357 BUT as DUDE stated anything is better then nothing. Heck look what Sirhan-Sirhan did with at 22.

  5. I am seriously looking for a Colt Defender .45APC. Is there such a thing as too much gun?

    Love my Baby Desert Eagle with the 9mm and the .41 AE barrels, but can;t find the 41 AE ammo. I have 30 PP rounds and that is all in 41AE.

    .380 enuff for me

    Although I carry a SIG P229 .40 on and off duty, I do carry as a back up a SIG P232 .380...

    IMHO the .380 would be OK for a backup but not for a priamry CC caliber.

    Apparently a vast majority of American shooters think it is enough... Have you tried buying .380 ammo lately??? Have you tried buying reloading supplies for .380??? Have you seen the price of .380 ACP??? It costs more than 10mm Auto. Right now it seems to be the most popular handgun cartridge out there... So, it would seem to me, that most folks think it is enough.

    Elvis is alive and hanging out with the little green men and they are all shooting up the .380 causing the price to sky rocket.
