    Micro Might: How .380 ACP Handguns Are Changing the Concealed Carry Game

    The .380 ACP caliber has garnered both critique and commendation within the concealed carry community.

    Critics point to its relatively lower stopping power when contrasted with heftier calibers such as the 9mm and .45 ACP.

    Supporters, on the other hand, value its lighter recoil and ease of handling, especially in the context of compact pistols designed for discreet carry.

    The CZ Model 83 380 Auto, although discontinued, offers an all-steel frame that contributes to its weight. 

    It wasn’t beautifully finished inside, but the work was well done and extremely sturdy looking, fed, fired, and ejected perfectly.

    Glock’s G42 380 Auto Subcompact Slimline provides an optimal combination of portability and concealability.

    Adding a laser sight enhances the accuracy of shooters, when we incorporated a Viridian Green Laser R5-G42 Reactor into the G42, it undeniably enhanced our shooters’ precision.

    Kimber’s Micro Carry Advocate Brown, with its tritium-insert sights, delivers a significant advantage in low-light situations.

    Its construction echoes that of the traditional 1911, lending to its sturdiness and ergonomic design.

    The heavier trigger, however, might necessitate additional practice for optimal proficiency.

    Ruger LCP-C Custom No. 3740 380 Auto offers a notably improved trigger action and sights over its predecessors.

    The Custom version has earned a commendation for these enhancements, making it earned an A- grade.

    Rock Island Armory’s Baby Rock No. 51912 380 Auto presents as a miniaturized 1911, with a grip safety and excellent sights for a pistol of its size.

    It has been praised for its benchrest accuracy and comfort in firing, presenting itself as the most agreeable to shoot among the listed options.

    In addition to these model-specific features, the .380 ACP’s lower recoil is a central theme. Recoil can heavily influence a shooter’s control and speed in accurately firing multiple rounds.
