My EDC has been my glock 23 AIWB. I love it but I just put a glock 27 on layaway, I can't shake the glocks lol so instead I'm embracing it. I've often thought about going for something smaller (size & caliber) but I'm so used to my gun it's almost second nature.

the only thing a .380 is good for is as a backup to your backup. I met a guy who was shot 5 times with a .380 and survived. He said one bullet hit him in the head and deflected off. The gut shot caused him some agony and a surgery, but was nothing critical. Others in arms and shoulder. Lucky I guess, but I would not carry a .380 unless it was a 3rd gun.

Either the guy you met was Superman or the shooter had junk ammo


Once again watch this and then tell me you are willing to be my target

Did you notice the killer at the Ohio school had a sub compact 22 - - - killed 3 of the 5 he shot!

Mentioned this in another thread. My summer carry is an S&W Bodyguard .38spl snubby. Found my Compact 9 was too bulky. Light, compact, easy to conceal and the .38spl+p is a decent self defense round.
