I've changed my mind after getting some more outdoor experience and would much rather have a good, reliable 22lr. Even a .380 will cause too much damage to small game so a 22lr is better for securing food. A 22lr isn't a man stopper but, it is only a backup to your rifle and it is still pretty darn effective. A nice Ruger in 22lr would fit the bill nicely IMO.
While outside the scope of this discussion, there's also the RMR-30, which is essentially the same firearm in a carbine (it's a tiny thing):
As for me choice, the g19
I wish they offered the pmr-30 in a 22lr instead of 22mag. I would definitely own one if they did. sooo much cheaper to shoot 22lr.
