    IMO any gun is better than none. I take no issues with a .22 or .380 . Sometimes carrying a larger gun becomes an issue. That is solved with smaller weapons. IMO training is far more important weapon/bullet size. What good is a BFH if you cant swing it?

    Completely agree that any gun is better than no gun, as long as you train and are proficient with it. Personally everything I carry is 9mm, IMO shot placement is more important than caliber.

    I pocket a Beretta 950 in .25 a lot of times. I have it in my gym shorts pocket lounging around the house right now actually. It's definitely my "I'm not carrying a gun" gun.

    I can pump 9 rounds into a spot a little bigger than my fist with it as fast as I can pull the trigger at 5yds. I can't really imagine most would be bad guys would want to stand there for all 9. It's not the best choice out there, but if I can't carry anything else, it beats harsh language.

    I can easily pocket-carry a 9mm. In the rare occasions I want to deep carry, my Kahr CM-9 or Sig P365 melt away in a tuckable holster, or I'll carry my Kahr P380. There's no way I'd carry something smaller.

    If you doctor cant see a Taurus 380 during a colonoscopy, you need a new doctor, or he needs new camera.

    Regardless of the size of the gun or the caliber, if you can't hit what your aiming at under pressure, you are likely screwed.
