9mm and 380 are hard to get, especially last year. 9mm is in heavy use in the military, and LEOs use it as well.
380s are excellent guns for women and beginners because of the compact size, and lack of significant kick.
Due to the threat of gun legislation last year many people began to buy up many types of guns, and the smaller calibers got very popular. At least
were I live the lack of supply has gotten better, but I don't want to speak for everyone.
Personally I use an AK47 for home defense, and have at least one of my pistols ready for back up.
I have been getting strange phone calls from a Sam Gordon also so yes I do have an escape plan as well.
Street sweepers are definitely good and I have two. One of which is in a bug out bag with lots of extra ammo, and it has an extended magazine.
Guns are a very personal decision, but I think you are on the right track getting the opinion of other people.
