Hard to argue with over a century of success.

A 60 grain jacketed hollowpoint will leave a three inch barrel at about 1,074 feet per second, giving you about 150 foot pounds of energy. You can take the risk but I'd prefer to put a 230 grain JHP out of my four inch, .45 caliber barrel at 850 feet per second which should carry about 350 foot pounds of energy.

For a long time I carried a .380, but one day I was in a mall when a shooting took place. I decided then to carry something with more stopping power. One of these days I'll buy a subcompact 9mm like the Glock 43 to have a small and lightweight 9mm to carry when I don't want the weight and bulk of my .45, but until then I will carry a .380 only when there's no other choice.

Excerpt from website:
This is one look at historical data, but other studies show similar results. There’s not a tremendous difference in performance between common calibers. Listening to caliber selection arguments, one might expect some calibers to be 38 times more effective than others, but it’s just not the case.

So what’s my point? The table above is most definitely NOT a guide to caliber selection. Just because one caliber shows higher one shot stop percentage or fewer hits per incapacitation doesn’t mean all that much. As I mentioned earlier, there are simply far too many variables at play to ever make absolute judgments like that.

If there is a point to be made, it’s right there in front of us in the numbers. Consider the number of shots to incapacitate. Not how many, but the fact that you have to have hits in the first place. Choose whatever ammo you’re comfortable with and spend more of your energy developing the skills to make hits when you need to, and less arguing about which caliber is the “magic bullet.”

Anyone wondering what the difference are between a .32 auto acp magazine and a .380 acp mag....well, just click on this."

Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless .32 ACP & Model 1908 Pocket Hammerless .380 ACP - Factory Magazine Variations

Anyone know where the .32 auto acp mags can be purchased? I see where some places are selling .380 mags and calling them .32. I want the 7 hole mag.
