I have two .380s, one was my IDPA BUG when that was a side match, nothing I care to shoot all day as a main match gun. The other is largely a memento of a deceased friend.
I can find room for a subcompact 9mm as a hideout gun and don't have to puzzle over the best bullet for .380.
Have a micro 9mm for minimum concealment situations as will.
But that does not negate the fact that the .380 ACP, with proper barrel length and ammo selection, is a viable Self/Home Defense round, for those who can shoot it effectively.
