.380 Popularity vs. Perceived Lack of Power
Seems that the gun makers that produce .380's can't make them fast enough at the moment. 380 ammo remains in short supply. However, you read all the time that most "experts" consider it a bad choice for concealed carry. Seems to me that the best CW gun is the gun that you'll actually carry, and that you can actually shoot. James Bond didn't have a problem popping people with his... :hand10:
Many of the models coming out are very light, very flat, and easy to handle. Seems like a good combination for non-LEO people to learn to carry all the time. Better to have a 380 in your pocket than leave behind your .40 or .45 because your compact still isn't small enough for todays attire or events. Where's the love?
