    Default Re: Information about .380

    My current carry gun is a Remington RM380. I keep it fed with a diet of Underwood 65 grain Xtreme Defender rounds. Underwood uses Lehigh Defense"s bullets, but their price is a tiny bit more reasonable. Excellent defensive ammo.

    Just be prepared and well stocked for practice. If history repeats itself, 380 ammo may be once again hard to find if/when another Democrat President takes office. It was difficult to find in 2009.

    If the LCP was a revolver, we'd say it has a 1 7/8" barrel.

    From barrel to breach face, an LCP is 2.7" and hence has a 2.7" barrel because that's how autoloaders are measured.

    But the actual length from muzzle to chamber is roughly 1 7/8", which is what we'd measure for a revolver.

    When comparing an autoloader barrel length to a revolver, you have to subtract case length to get down to it.

    1. Welcome to PAFOA!

    b. Having ANY gun is FAR better than being defenseless.

    Thirdly, the rules of a gunfight are
    a. Have a gun.
    b. Have a reliable gun: Have one that YOU can hit the target with consistently. A gun may be accurate, but not with you. If so, sell it and get one that is accurate with YOU
    c. Have ENOUGH gun. Make sure it puts a wide hole in somebody, and has enough weight to do a lot of damage, so that the bad guy will stop doing bad thIngs. Having enough gun also includes enough bullets to keep shooting until the threat abates.
    d. HAVE THE GUN WITH YOU!! Holsters are important. Get your PA License to Carry a Firearm. It costs $25 . See your county sheriff.

    Please think and pray and decide ahead of time that you will be ok with shooting a person that is trying to do evil to you or yours.

    The commandment says "do not kill" in most versions of the Bible. That is an incorrect translation. The Jewish Torah has it correct: Do not murder. Huge difference.

    Self defense and defense of others is not a sin.

    Seems backwards, but better late than never. A lot of good info in this thread.

    I pocket carry an LCP II with extreme penetrators when backpacking. There are much much better rounds for .380 these days.
