380 Automatic Colt Pistol Handgun Cartridge:
 The 380 automatic colt pistol cartridge was designed by John Browning and added to the Colt Pocket Automatic line in 1912, this cartridge is also known as the 9mm Browning Short and 9mm Kurz. This cartridge is still popular today for the simple fact that small lightweight handgun frame sizes are easily concealed and this cartridge offers enough stopping power for most off duty police officers.
