So recently I have noticed that allot more people have been carrying little 380s and I am wondering what ammo you carry with and what you think is best penetration wise. Also would you prefer fmj or hp. Thanks.

I use a LCP as a BUG loaded with Federal Hyda Shok JHP. Many people shy away from the .380 JHP supposably because of the lack of penetration. Hopefully I will never have to put it to the actual test.
