My lady likes guns 9mm and smaller. A .380 would be ideal for her. I hate .380 though, its expensive for what it is haha. For stopping power...well, I wouldn't want to be shot even with a .22. I'd have no problem carrying a .380.
I don't own any Glocks but I've checking some out. I like the 19 just for fun and the 43 for a second carry gun.
Totally! .380 ACP is ridiculous in cost! and I don't know, I been stabbed once and I think if I had to deal with it all over again, id rather be shot than stabbed again.. maybe im a fool in that thinking, dunno.
As for the Glock. 19 and 23 use identical frames at least in the 3 pin 3rd Gens. The slides can mix and match between a single frame and for cost effectiveness use the 9mm for practice and be using the same firearm and then after play time was over, 2.5 mins or less I can swap the barrel, spring, and the slide and be back to .40cal as a 23 again.
I like the .40 cal even though its a bit of a snappier round to me but thoughts also were that if SHTF and everything went wrong, most everyone around me, Metro included ALL have .40 cal 90% of the time so usable ammo "should" be prevalent if I had to pillage a fallen country (wo)man.. :(
Also why I set up most of my AR15 for CQB at 200-225 yards. I know it can do more but there's better options for that to me. I have a fond appreciation for the 6.5 Creedmore, I think its an interesting caliber. But a buddy of mind goes on a tangent describing so called near 1.75 "mile" plinking's.. and I'm like okay it plinks that far but at 1.75 miles whats the penetration factors involved? You might be able to almost catch it in your hand at that far [loose sarcasm emphasized as I toss a 6.5 round at your chest lightly].. lol
