Ah, the old, "who would let me shoot them with it?" arguement. I'll do you one better. I have a newly sharpened pencil, who will let me stick it in their eye? I'm guessing not many takers but I'll still restrain myself from carrying a pocket full of pencils for self defense.
I've no doubt that a .380 could push it's way thru my leather, but it's gonna burn up alot of juice to do it. I'd stick with the 357 or get really good at CNS hits.
