    good article gunnerbob... thanks. i am going to hang onto my 9, but think i will swap my kel tec p3at for the kahr p380. i agree, 380 can do what it needs to do and is better than nothing if u r in a situation where nothing larger can b concealed. about a week ago tho, i was out with my wife and 2 yr old son, and we went looking at an empty foreclosed home that we saw... empty as we thought. when we got around to the back, there was a very pissed off pitbull in the garage with only a screen door between us. he didn't, but could've come right thru that screen, and in the moment, i was very glad i had my 9mm on me rather than a .380!

    Well at least your honest :-) I would appreciate you calling the a dog a dog, if the breed is unknown.

    well a dog it definitely was. and a large pissed off 1 it was also. 1 that coulda done damage. breed is irrelevant to the point

    I agree it was irrelevant. Just be aware that labeling a violent dog immediately a pitbull is offense to some. Defend you and your loved ones by all means.

    i wasn't labeling, i'm about 99% sure it was a pitbull. i Justin don't know about various breeds of them. all kinds of dogs can b violent, i know. my wife's cousin has a pitbull that's as gentle as a fuzzy teddy bear. it all depends on the owners and how they're trained and treated... i meant no offense.

    An APBT (American pitbull terrier), also known a American staffordshire terrier is its own breed. A mutt is a mutt. There is a big problem with dog related attacks statistics. If the breed is unknown, its usually lumped with "pitbull types". I speak up in defense for our 2A and my awesome pitbull. In the end, glad you didn't have to go through any traumatic incident in front of your family. Stay safe out in this crazy world.

    thanks, i sure will. u do the same!

  11. I think with modern ammo, like Hornady's Critical Defense ammo, .380 isn't as poor a choice as it once was; nevertheless, I'm not wure what the pro is for the .380 vs the 9mm. Used to be one would get a .380 to have somethign really small. But with guns like the Ruger LC9, the Kimber Solo, and similar from Sig Saur, you can get pocket-small pistol in 9mm.
