How often is the caliber of the handgun an issue in self defense shootings? I don't recall any incidents where a civilian was out gunned. The key to concealed carry is not caliber so much as just being armed. It is more about what gun are you more likely to carry then large or small caliber?

What is more important is shot placement but you can't argue with concealability. At 5ft not a big difference in 380 or 9mm. I am more likely to have my p3at than my glock 19 or 30 but if I knew I would be in a gunfight it would be a different story. After 35 years of ccw I've been lucky to not need anything and that is why I am carrying either 380 or NA arms 22mag most of the time with more power a few feet away in my car.
