    I loved my .380 because I could hit the "B" on a Budweiser can with consistent accuracy. Unfortunately, the only threat I face from a beer can is damage to my waistline.
    Its also true that a well placed shot to center mass in .380 is much better than a miss with 9mm. Can't miss enough to stop a bad guy.

    Glock 45 for on-duty carry and Glock 48 for off-duty.

    I think reliability and safety are the primary considerations for carry, but I have issues with anything with less penetration power than a 9mm. Condo Guard, I think you may want to reconsider the .380 due to the low power factor with that round.

    I considered the Sig 226 at one time but after using a Glock for so long I decided I don't care for a safety or decocker lever (too much to think about LOL)

    My personal EDC is a S&W M&P shield also without a safety. My woman has the same gun and hers has a safety which she likes

    Ah, firearms - the "third rail" issue of security and police forums. I will admit a small bias in regards to Glocks - when they first came out they were over hyped; I also think a lot of security guards favor them because the police do. (Not that its wrong, just that we may face different scenarios.)

    If I worked in gang territory, I would go for reliable and a high capacity option, and the Glocks fit that. Other jobs require something more low key; six shots w/ a back up mag is fine. The big thing is find something that fits you. Years ago I had a Star .380 - that was far and away one of the best firearms I ever owned, despite not being a "famous" brand.

    Don't know too much about firearms - but my own, as long as u maintenance it properly, works like a charm. Almost 3 years I had it now.

    Glocks (9mm) are the predominant choice here in Pacific NW for armed security, especially in the areas south of Seattle where you see a lot of gang activity.
