Lol. Whenever I take someone in the woods and bears come up I tell them you can't outrun a bear but all I need to do is outrun you. Lol

A .380 caliber is the smallest I would go, but that's just me.

With so many good choices in 9mm being made so small, I see no reason to go smaller. Maybe a .380 as a back up in an ankle holster, but IMO that is total overkill and may result in bad legal predicament if I ever had to defend myself.
