It's a little out of fashion at present.
Five years ago, I'd have agreed. However, the market for pocket-size automatics exploded a few years back, and with the exception of Glock, I can't think of a domestic manufacturer who isn't selling some iteration of the pocket .380.
Five years ago, I'd also have told someone to carry ball ammunition, as most .380 hollow-points had terrible penetration. The newer loads seem to have improved on that front.
