IMO, anything above .25 is suitable for self defense. Even a .25 can kill, but it is highly unlikely it will make a one-shot-stop. Most of the time, just pullin a gun is good enough to solve a self defense situation.
I agree with that 100%.

I'd prefer to carry a .45, but if I need a more compact gun, I'll go with 9mm or 38 special /357 mag. The smallest I'd be comfortable carrying is a .380. MAYBE .32 ACP since it is somewhat simular to .380.

Well, there is a reason for shooting like that. That is the position the gun was in- in the box.

Agreed! I posted in one of my threads that you should be automatically kicked out of a gun store for doin that.

I tried it before. It's awkward, uncomfortable, and my gun jammed more than usual.

I guess those "gangstas" are a lot stronger than me. I shoot with two hands. How the heck am I supposed to get my off hand under the gun?
