^This. Especially when you factor in the cost of .380 ammo vs. 9mm. It doesn't make sense to me. The .380 if fine for the little pocket guns, but in a 2 inch snubbie revolver I go for .357 magnum.my thought is.............................WHY?
Any revolver that is made for .380 could be made to take 9MM and be the same size and weight as the .380 model.
Thanks for the link Qwiks draw. It was an interesting read, and while those points are all true, they are not compelling, at least not to me. I like the 380 for deep concealment, but the revolver vs the semi-auto, say the TCP-738, is I think, harder to conceal. No offense meant toward those desiring a 380 ACP revolver, but I just don't see the need for it. Then again, my wife doesn't think I need more than one of my handguns, rifles and shotguns. I don't want one because it doesn't make sense to me. I'm sure it does make sense to others. What ultimately drives the success or failure of any product offering is 1) does it work, and 2) will consumers buy it.
