During several years of my Law Enforcement Career, I was a Violent Crimes Detective and part of our investigation was attending the autopsy of the victim at the State Medical Investigators Office. I have personally seen the devastation a .380 cal. HP round can do to a persons vital organs. Believe me when I say that a .380 cal HP round can get the job done with proper shot placement.
I am not saying the the former LE that you are talking about is mistaken in his personal observations regarding a .380 JHP not being successful. All I am saying is that I have seen them work several times and the person on the autopsy table was proof.
