When is a .380 (or even a .22) better than a 9mm?

I can't believe I've found myself having this discussion in the year 2021, and yet here we are. This column did not appear in a vacuum.

Outside of circumstances so narrow that I can't think of any off the top of my head, a single-action handgun with a one- or two-finger grip and which needs to have its hammer manually cocked to fire for each shot is a fundamentally unserious choice for personal protection in this current year.
