It has been a long time since I used, let alone owned, anything that fits in the “pocket pistol” category. Several years ago, I had a run-in with an older Ruger LCP that left a bad taste in my mouth and I swore off of .380 ACP forever… or so I thought. In all fairness, I never really gave the smaller calibers a chance, judging them universally for the failures of a specific weapon that had been treated poorly by its owner. Thankfully, the Micro Carry came along and gave me a chance to change my opinion.
Most of you know that I’m a big supporter of the Second Amendment and carry pretty much everywhere I legally can. Well, back in September of last year, a friend was a victim of an armed robbery at a convenience store. He was unarmed and alone, and was accosted as he was leaving the store. After the fact, he approached a group of us and asked what we would do, as armed citizens, if faced with a similar situation.
