Although the .380 has its place (and is a step up from the .22 Magnum), I still have some reservations using it as primary CCW.
My criteria as a primary CCW includes the consideration of confrontation with a 150# wild pig. If I feel it is worthy of bringing down a pig of that size, then it should do the job of stopping a 200# bad guy who is bent on hurting me (or a pitbull sized dog if needed).
Have I carried my pocket .380 as primary? Yes, but I just don't feel comfortable.
