The NAA guardian .380 is a great little gun. Search on the forum, I wrote a small review on it. It kicks like a mule - much more power than expected. The gun is made very well and will serve you well. I would recommend carrying something in .40 caliber or higher as a primary gun, but the .380 is a great BUG (back up gun). Good luck, if you have anymore questions, feel free to reply or private message me.
