I've never known a criminal to use a .380. They usually use .22LR or 9mm in my experience.

While you're probably right that .380 isn't a common round for baddies to use, I know of at least one baddie that did. I was staring down the barrel of a .380 snub nose (sorry, I was 10 so I didn't get a brand/model....plus they look the same). I can tell you, though, that he had an FMJ bullet in there.

Hmmm... Snubnose... Must've been a .38 if it was a revolver... Just sayin'... Trying to keep our termination accurate as possible so browsing folks don't get TOO confused...

In my TCP738, which is a BUG, I have the magazine alternately loaded with hollow point and FMJ, which hopefully is the best of both worlds. I figure seven well-placed rounds should be enough if ever necessary.
