You might want to have a look at the attached link. It does not answer your question specifically but is a good read on gun basics and self defense written by a woman. Janis Cortese: Firearms and Self-Defense

I doubt it. Many military members have carried their private firearms, especially in the officer ranks. But as "military issue" the .380 has never been a adopted for the service. Military handguns went from .38 S&W to .45 ACP to 9mm. Some special forces carry others but on a very limited nbasis.

Well a quick search tells me that the .380 was used for awhile by officers. The Colt 1903 was the pistol they issued. Not sure how accurate this is, as it is from Wikipedia and I'm to lazy to look for more. Regardless though, this pistol wasn't made much after the 1940's (I don't think) so any surplus ammo available would be of questionable reliability.
