.32 acp is the smallest I own and I trust it enough to carry it. Use FMJ Ball ammo in it.

Ruger SR9c 9mm
Bersa Thunder .380
Bersa Thunder .32

I shot a beer can 6 times with a 32 acp. It was pretty dead.

I carry my Charter Arms Off Duty .38 loaded with 125gr FMJ Winchester ammo 18/7. I practice every three weeks. Indoors/outdoors. Silhouettes, round targets, metal targets. From 3 feet to 75 feet.

That's horrible for her!

I would go with the .380 and 9mm as the smallest.

That would make sense, as I understand the 32 is older than dirt, I have own a couple of 32s, off brands, nothing high dollar, but they shot well and I for sure would not want to be hit by one.........not to get another round of BS started the 32 is head and shoulders above a 25
