Just curious why a 380 was your weapon of choice against unknown number of bad guys and their load out? Seems you set yourself up for failure bro. Stay outside and call the fuzz... Glad you are okay though...

Probably because its what he owns and had available. A hit with a .22 is better than miss with a .45.

I have no clue what lacross is but if it's anything like the field hockey stick they girls at my old school use to have the things hurt like hell!

I carry a knife where ever I go, usually a sheath knife (old timer 165 OT) or a pockets knife. Just something to think about glade everyones ok

Now look at security (a broom stick for the sliding door track).
When my daughter moved into an apartment with a sliding glass door, the first thing I did was go to the hardward store, bought a one inch dowel rod and cut it to size to put in the sliding glass door track.

I think a .380 is a perfectly acceptable carry caliber. If I ever begin to conceal carry, my carry firearm will be a .380. But my bedside gun is a .357 magnum.

You wouldn't expect a breaking in an apartment... with so many neighbors so close; sharing the same roof and all. I suppose nobody saw anything?

My house is on a corner and has a very low fence in the back yard right across from a high school. It was broken in to twice through the back door during the middle of the day while summer school was in going on. No one saw a thing. Or so they say. I no longer trust any of my neighbors.

To the OP you are very lucky you came home when you did.

Like i said i was halfway inside when it happened. I used a .380 because, like was said, it's what i have. Its my carry weapon. I have faith in my .380 and here in Oregon (as I'm sure it is elsewhere) you are responsible for the bullet and anything it hits once it leaves the weapon. I feel its a great carry caliber. Down the road id like to get a .40 or .45 for home defense.

Not really. Although my upstairs neighbors did hear people behind my apartment for an hour before it happened. But didn't see them.

The .380 is just fine. If you said you were armed with a .44 Mag. some one would have said get a .500 S&W.
