Re: What Do You Guys Think?
True that .380 ACP is fully capable of stopping a threat.
9mm Para is an undeniable jump in performance though. It pushes a heavier bullet faster than its shorter sister. The difference is pretty big regardless of barrel length. A heavier faster bullet equals more tissue damage via more penetration into vitals....which with identical placed bullets into the same vitals means faster loss of blood pressure...quicker stop. The faster bullet means more reliable expansion of hollowpoints, and that's a side benefit. Just wanted to get that bit out of the way... .380 barely approaches 9mm performance in capability.
I carry a .380 PPK/s a lot. I carry a G17 9mm sometimes too. So I kinda see where you're comming from about .380/9mm.
I don't see why having the 9mm for your jacket pocket in winter months would be a trade-off.
