One more pro for the .380.
Virtually every Self Defense "expert" in existence recommends .380 as the MINIMUM caliber to be used for Self Defense.
Here are some thoughts and opinions on 32 vs 380:jerry said:what are the ballistic qualities of both rounds? how does recoil compair?
I agree except I bet it's greater than 90%. I have seen quite a few film clips of shootings (store video cams, etc) and read quite a few accounts (armed citizen, etc). I can't really remember ANYONE shot by ANYTHING that wanted anything more than to leave immediately, if they were able. I bet when that gun unexpectedly goes off in your face and you get hit, you are not going to be thinking, ahh... just a 32. :-/fatman said:It is my impression that most BGs are not psychologically prepared to be shot when they commit their crimes and when they are shot in center of mass by either a .32 or .380 they will immediately break off the fight and try to escape with their lives. I would guess that this would happen at least 90% of the time.
