The .380 Auto, AKA .380 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol), 9mm Short, or 9mm Kurz, features the same diameter bullet as the 9mm Luger Cartridge, with a shorter casing. Like the .45 ACP, the .380 Auto was designed by John Browning in the early 1900s and is commonly used in small "pocket" pistols.
Many doubt its ability as a personal defense handgun, due to the reduced stopping power and muzzle velocity. However, the compact design and high ammo capacity of the .380 Auto still makes it a very popular handgun for concealed carry and lighter framed shooters.
