Default Weird little tip for .380 guys

I usually carry a spare mag or two in my left pocket when I'm wearing my LCP or my Kel-Tec in the right one -- and I've discovered that one of those leather Bic lighter covers is a perfect fit for a .380 magazine. I have a rattlesnake one (that I bought at a gun show, oddly enough) that I especially like; it keeps the mag clean and is easy to strip for a quick reload. Like I said, a weird tip, but there it is.

I understand everything except why you would pocket a 22/25.

I think he meant why would you carry such a small caliber as a defensive tool? I could be wrong though.

Hey, I've carried a .22 minirevolver, at times when nothing larger was practical. It's better than a fist or a sharp rock. I've gotten a little more comfortable with carrying my .380, which is better; but I'm sure I'll have the .22 in my pocket again from time to time. For some of us, a .45 or even a 9mm isn't particularly practical -- though I am intrigued by the new supercompact nines.

Good stuff. I am using and old iPod nano case but a lighter case would look (and probably work) better.
