I agree with that too. They're both fine weapons that are worthy of trusting with your life. Preference just depends on your needs and your personal taste. That's why peanut butter comes in smooth and chunky. Carry what you like, but don't dump on the next guy because he isn't the same as you.

You can say anything as long as you follow the saying "no put downs, pass it around"

There is a point system used when importing firearms from other countries. They must score a certain number to be acceptable and be able to be imported. The points are based on slide length weight caliber etc. 380s do not score enough to be imported and sold in the United States. I think the minimum number of points is 75 out of 100? There is a thing on YouTube about it but I can't look for it at the moment.

'Cause that .380 ammo is too pricey for us mere mortals to afford.
