    Lol. Whenever I take someone in the woods and bears come up I tell them you can't outrun a bear but all I need to do is outrun you. Lol

    A .380 caliber is the smallest I would go, but that's just me.

    With so many good choices in 9mm being made so small, I see no reason to go smaller. Maybe a .380 as a back up in an ankle holster, but IMO that is total overkill and may result in bad legal predicament if I ever had to defend myself.

    While .380 is the current rage, I'm not impressed.

    If you look at ammo prices, I'd say either settle for

    a nice small 22LR, or step up to at least a 9mm((9X19mm).

    Being a somewhat large guy, IMO, 9mm is a minimum.

    If you are so small, or weak you can't handle a 9mm,

    then you should certainly step down to a cartridge

    size you can control, and also afford.

    I carry 380 in my Ruger LCP (at least did until I got stationed in CA and have my right to bear arms infringed).

    Anyway, when discussing which caliber to choose, I'm learning to shorten my input by just saying SEAL Team VI uses 45acp. :cool:

    And yet another one. At this point I'm just pointing it out to see others catch on before posting.
