i know lots of people say the 380AUTO is a light gun and the guns for it are bad but for fishing or if you just need a gun they do. Guns like the Jimenez Arms J.A. .380 ,.cobra pistols, accu-tek HC-380., and others have been worn for fishing guns and carry guns. Most shoot pretty well and will take HP rounds and not jam. I have a 1934 and it will shoot +p rounds and i have used it for killing coyotes and sometimes snakes. Anyways what kind of gun do you carry for fishing??
