briandg, issues with having to rack the slide is why people shouldn't carry on an open chamber. As I discussed earlier, the little .380 guns are valuable because they are tiny. They are about as small as you can go within what some of us would consider reasonable for self-defense. So some of us will carry them when we can't carry something larger. In those cases, will we also have room for a spare mag? How many of us will bother carrying the spare mag?

Yeah, some people carry them as their primary EDC because they are convenient. How many of those people will be carrying a spare mag?

Locking back matters if you are carrying a spare magazine and you end up having to change magazines in a defensive encounter. On a hot day, I've usually got six rounds and a prayer.
