    The K9 is small but the P380 is much smaller and can be easier tucked away for summer wear. 380 is no 9mm but todays ballistic innovations have greatly improved the 380 performance to acceptable levels. A small gun is better than no gun.

    The K9 is a service pistol, the P380 is a pocket pistol….

    How will this be different than the K9 pistols other than a reduction in caliber from 9mm to 380? My E9 Custom Elite is one of the finest pistols I’ve ever carried. Why switch to 380?
