Does anyone have both the 9mm & the .380 that might have a comparison on concealment for me? Or does anyone just have the 9mm that they put in their pocket without a holster?
2 things: 1st--please get a pocket holster! Even apart from lint, bad sh*t can happen to a gun bouncin' around in a pocket.
2nd-- let's face it, a .380 will do the job. If you want to go a bit heavier, sure, a 9mm will give you more horsepower. But, why? As targets go, humans are pretty soft. You not trying to put down a Cape buffalo. If you fire at a human at normal combat range (21-28 FEET) a .380 will get it done. And it's easier to conceal.
