I saw a fascinating FBI study on actual pistol engagements showing not much difference in 38 cal (.380, 9mm, 38 special) combat results. Now the results for 40, 44 and 45 cal and on up were markedly more lethal.

The most surprising thing for me was the 38 special performance, in that it was in the same results category as the .380 and 9mm. Go figure. Sorry I can't direct you to that report but Google it and I'm sure it will turn up.

I'm sure this is going to chap a lot of asses in the firearms community and maybe change a few minds. The recent popularity of .380 pistols may be vindicated.

OPPS: I saw the data here. Go back to post 14. Stupid ole me!
