If you're the type to look at numbers when picking a self-defense round, it's pretty evident why the .380 doesn't always get much love. Whether you're looking at muzzle energy, momentum, or the FBI penetration tests, there's a pretty big gap in performance between .380 ACP and 9mm Luger. That doesn't mean that the .380 is worthless, it's just that if numbers are your thing, 9mm gives you a lot more in a slightly-larger package.

Even so, I still carry a .380 when I don't feel like carrying my .40.
