Cool thanks. I'm rocking some Gold Dot 90gr JHP in there now. I'll definitely check out the Buffalo Bore.
31 inches? Aren't you concerned about over-penetration?
Typically a huge concern for me, but with a 380 I just wouldn't worry about it. Am I wrong for that?
Also, getting a little tired of people ragging on 380 ACP. I ask the same question every time someone tells me they are underpowered and not good for personal defense..."Do you volunteer to get shot with one?".
I want a CCW for personal defense...I'm not trying to assassinate the Dallas Cowboys or go to war with an army of bath salt lunatics or anything. (I have a nice selection of nasty, poly cudgels from Cold Steel in case of zombie apoc)Edited by javyn - 8/19/13 at 1:57pm
