We decided to make a page for the 380 ACP because of the popularity. After all, the 380 (9x17) is just a shorter 9mm (9x19). It wouldn't be fair to make a "best list" because we have only fired a few of the 380 pistols on this page. We set the maximum price limit at $550.

The 380 ACP is much more powerful than the 32 S&W Long (Colt New Police), and mirrors the 38 Special standard loads. The 32 S&W Long was a popular police cartridge for over 40 years! The 380 ACP can be a pleasant shooter for women and those new to the sport. The Walther PPK was good enough for James Bond, Right? For many, the 380 ACP will work for concealed carry. If we skipped any, please let us know. CCW Tip! A portable GPS holster case works great for small pistols. You can attach them to a belt or carry in a jacket pocket. Also look at PDA holsters. If it has a logo like Garmin or Sony on the outside, that is even better.
Ammo Tip: I use the flat nose jacketed Winchester or Remington 95gr ammo for self defense pocket pistols. The hollow point bullets don't always offer reliable penetration at low velocities. The flat nose bullets will cause shock, then tumble causing maximum damage with deep penetration. The Gelatin test show the flat nose bullets are the best too. According to FBI testing, 12 inches is the minimum penetration for defense. The flat nose bullets normally exceed 15 inches, even through heavy clothing. 380 ACP Ballistic Gelatin Tests (PDF) More 380 Gel Test (From 3 feet away)
