Re: .380 carry

Have two 380s and would not recommend it. You used to be able to get a smaller gun in a 380 but many manufactures are making 9mm in just as small of a gun as the 380. 380 is more expensive and harder to find than 9mm and I don't think provides any real advantage over the 9. If I knew what I know now I would have never bought a gun that was chambered in 380. Your mileage may very

If an inline is just like a flintlock why don't you get a flintlock so you can hunt more seasons?

Same here for small CC but I prefer my Ruger LCRX .38 Spl. Revolver.

Exactly! I use to carry a Walthers PPK/s 9mm kurz.(.380)with Winchester silver-tip JHP's. but now carry a Kahr PM9. Just as small as most .380's, but has the option of a larger selection of much better rounds.

Re: .380 carry

I also have 9mm and 45acps but I am also comfortable carrying my 380, I've seen what they can do.
