Emailed a guy last year about the course of fire. Pretty easy for someone who's been shooting for 40+ years.

Yep, lot of legal stuff to learn and gear to sort out.

this is a good statement from "sheepdogs"

Every gun is a tradeoff. There are advantages you give up by choosing to carry any one gun. For example, semiautomatics have some definite advantages over revolvers, and revolvers have some definite advantages over semiautomatics.

The important thing is to carry the gun and ammo which you have proven to yourself to be reliable, in an effective caliber, which you can conceal, which you are willing to carry often, and which you can shoot accurately.

Personal taste and choice is going to answer most of those questions for you. Your job is to go out there with a good instructor or knowledgable buddy, who has lots and lots of guns you can shoot, and allow you to experiment and find those answers yourself.

Like my commander. Just haven't experimented carrying it. Also have 92F. .380 seems a little small to me.

Ooh, that's 100 for the day. Whew.

For personal protection, a .380 is *probably* good enough.

I just personally feel that if you are going to carry a .380, unless recoil is an issue that for you is just insurmountable even with training and practice, there are lots of other guns in very nearly the same size package in even better calibers. That fact in and of itself is a good reason to carry something bigger than a .380 ACP.

You just never know when you might find yourself in one of those few self-defensive encounters where a .380 just isn't going to cut it.

I know for a fact that 1911fool has tons of experience, probably lots more that I do. I'd carefully consider what he has to say on the topic.
