And a .380 that's not empty is better than a 22. So make it not empty. Carry your .22 for a few weeks until you get your hands on some ammo if you need to. I just got in 5,000 small pistol primers...had to wait 6 weeks, but that's not a big deal. If you really want to protect yourself you'll make sure you have ammo. You just came in at the wrong time.
