In what situation would you forsee shooting a .380 acp at someone farther than 15 feet away from you? I carried a Guardian for 20 years before the LCP was introduced. For me it always served its role of self protection well but it has been retired from carry guns by lighter and slimmer pocket guns. I always felt confident in hitting a man sized target out to 50' (15 yards) with my Guardian but that was about as far as its could go considering it complete lack of sights. I am able to group my shots with my LCP much better than I ever was able to with my Guardian.
