Some of the newer .380 ammo is performing pretty well. My choice is Critical Defense, but there are others.

The simple fact is that, because the round is smaller, it is possible to design .380 pistols smaller than 9 mm pistols, and they are thus more easily concealed. The margins between the smallest 9 mm pistols and .380s isn't huge, but it isn't zero, either.

I carry a 9 mm most commonly, but when I can't carry IWB, I would rather have a .380 in my pocket than go unarmed. (Mine is a Sig P238, but the concept is the same.) The .380 may not be The Best Round, but it is not inconsequential in its defensive abilities.
