round nose bullets are also not very effective regardless of caliber. The
.45 is not much more effective than the .38 in hardball.

I bought a Smith & Wesson 38 D Hammerless Lightweight for my wife about
1971, it was nice weapon. In fact I had a .38 Hammerless when I was
aircrew in the Marine Corps in the 1950's I came with a Leather Shoulder
Holster that was nearly yellow! I had a farm and raised pigs. One of my
sows was dying. I had my wife's .38 with me. I shot that pig between the
eyes 5 times and she continued living!! I rushed to the house for my Model
90 Winchester, it was .22 Long Rifle. Shot her behind the ear and never a
twitch from her. I now only depend on .45 and .40 for self protection
although I have great respect for .22!

The two rounds that dropped or killed the two bad guys (Matix & Platt) in
the infamous 1986 FBI Miami gunfight were 38 Spl +P 158 gr LSWC-HP's fired
from Agent Mireles' S&W 686. Platt was hit 12 times and Matix was hit 6
times. Most hits on the bad guys were 9mm 115gr Silvertips or 00 buckshot.
The only 38 SPl hit on Platt was the one that dropped him. The two Agents
killed (Grogan & Dove) were both carrying S&W 459 9mm's. The 9mm's simply
failed-to-stop even with repeated good hits on Platt who was firing the
deadly Mini 14. Matix could only fire one shot, as he was disabled for
most of the fight by a 158gr 38 Spl fired from Agent McNeill's S&W 19 that
shattered his face and cracked the base of his skull. Agent Mireles killed
Matix at the end with another 38 Spl hit. Only 3 of the 18 hits on Platt
and Matix were 38 Spl, but those 3 hits of 38 Spl were the only bullets
that were effective. Clear evidence that with good bullets the 38 Special
cartridge is an extremely effective handgun round.

The bullet wounds on Platt & Matix detailed above are taken from the actual
forensics report on the 1986 gunfight.

I was shot five times with a 38 special by home intruders and survived to
tell my story. Two hit my arms and two in side and one in gut. The two men
ran off with a tv and my safe. I was in the hospital with multiple
surgerys. They never did catch those guys. Now I ccw and home protect with
a kahr 45 and a mini Draco ak47 along with a stoeger coach gun side by side

Picked up an original 99% condition Colt Cobra 2nd issue last month from a
local pawn shop for $400. dollars, and yesterday from the same dealer, a
S&W model 38 nickel in 100% condition for $350. dollars. Right place at
right time!

Go to Cabela's and find the Defense Ammo aisle. LOTS of .38 special
defensive rounds! +P Hollow points? If you don't drop dead you must be The
BTW, if you become proficient with a .38 sub nose, then you can shoot
anything and you'll be a very dangerous individual.

The .38 sp +p is a very good round for social work.

Thanks for this video and the historical information. I just added a S&W
642 Airweight to my EDC (G30S) deep concealment with 2 backup strips filled
with plus P rounds and would have to say the light weight and
concealability of these make it possible to do so. One has to be careful
though about thumbs forward grip with revolvers due to the chamber gap, but
I'll be training one-handed shooting (left and right) with this mostly.

Автор Thomas Pounds ( назад)
Good backup gun but that's about it. 

Автор Mark Harris ( назад)
I just purchased a 38 S&W modal 637. Easy for little old me too conceal and
it packs a punch.

Автор MollyGood$$ ( назад)
Thats my concealed carry of choice. I have the bodyguard. Its deadly enough
to not go through and leave holes like the 357 and I like revolvers over
say a semi auti glock.

The .38 special IS NOT the caliber that failed to stop the Moro warriors in
the Filipino American war, yet this is a misconception that is for some
reason is passed around as truth. It was the .38 long colt that failed to
stop the Moro warriors, so in response to the insufficiency of that round,
a magnum version of the .38 long colt was created and it was named the .38
special. "Special", it WAS special and had a lot of knockdown power, so for
what it is, the .38 special was and still is a great round. I know this is
not brought up in this video, but it is some historical firearms truth that
needed to be told.

The old 200gr LRN bullet would tumble upon hitting flesh. A great load
for a snubby.

The term "Saturday Night Special" is the term for cheap guns that blow up
when shot, but used by the poor hoodlum to rob liquor stores and etc. The
guns in this video are not SNSs. The .38 is a fine gun and I would like to
have one in self-defense. The max range for accuracy of a snub is 30
feet. Point and shoot. Effective for accuracy up to 15 feet. Not meant
for long range accuracy, the snub. Great video and personable instructor.

Автор Mark Chesney ( назад)
I really enjoyed this one Tom. I used to have a 38 years ago. Love to own
one again. Donations are happily accepted. lol PEACE!

I just put away my Glock 9mm, and put down $500 on a new Smith 38sp. to
carry, much lighter, and easier to carry.

I like a 357 revolver. but I shoot and reload 38 .
I like the option of stepping up if need be.

The Taurus model 85 ultra light .38 Spl +p was my first gun purchase. I
recommend it to anyone looking for a good concealed carry and for first
time gun owners. I purchased it for 300 dollars (at a gun show I should
add) so they are affordable if you are budget conscious buyer. I had tried
a dozen different handguns at a local range to zero in on what worked best
for me. The snub .38 just felt right when I was trying it out at the range,
but I admit the recoil is something you'll have to get used to if your a
first time shooter. A fantastic close range personal defense gun.

My Glock 23 is a little too big for summer carry so I have been carrying
the Ruger LCRx .38 all summer. I love the .38! I still carry it even now in
winter. Awesome gun!

The term "Saturday night special" was the anti gunners battle cry in the
70s. Many of the younger generation have never heard it. Now, of course,
the anti gunner buzz word is "assault weapon".

Thank you Tom for all of your great videos. This video is one of my
favorites on your channel. I have heard many stories of would be criminal
attackers who got shot once, maybe twice with a 38 special revolver, and
did not live to talk about it. It's more powerful than some may think.

Автор Jorge Enrique Dávalos Cassaigne ( назад)
I personally don´t like internal hammer in a revolver, I believe that a gun
that can fire in single and double action is more reliable. I had this .38
spl Taurus model 80, with a 4" barrel...it was very handy and
accurate...not to mention that recoil was easy to deal with, specially when
firing with a single hand.

treat yourself to the old mattel ads- one stars billy mumy.

charter arms suits me fine. not much of a price tag and there's lots around.

Thanks for the video. I personally own a couple of dozen revolvers in this
caliber. I highly recommend the excellent book, "The Snubby Revolver", by
Ed Lovette. I try to read it at least once a year to keep myself grounded
about what personal self defense is really about.

Автор elrebanada ( назад)
I carry a S & W Model 36 as a backup to my PX4. What a wonderful little
jewel of a piece. The thing that surprises me most about it is the
accuracy. Out to about 20' I can pull it and get off 3-4 rounds in about 2
seconds with about a 3-5" grouping. It just "points and shoots" like no
other gun I have. Great guns i would highly recommend it in addition to the
fine guns you displayed in this vid. Thanks for posting!

Автор tonydelacruz45 ( назад)
The 38 special is an incredibly accurate gun, I would say that the 38 and
9mm are the most accurate handgun calibers I have ever shot. If you can, a
357 is better because it will fire 38, 38 +p and of course 357, problem is,
they are usually a bit more expensive, but worth the price.

Continuing on: Various .38 Special loads for different purposes. 1. 148
grain lead target wadcutter: small game: rabbit and squirrel, vermin:
raccoon, skunk, and possum, informal target shooting, butchering livestock.
2. Winchester Silvertip Hollowpoint, Remington Golden Saber, Federal's
Hydra- Shok in their respective +P loadings of 125 and 129 grains. Self
defense/house protection. 3. Glaser Safety Slug: Apartments, condos, etc.
4. For rattlesnakes: CCI No. 9 shot load

Автор James Farmer ( назад)
The .38 Special is ideal for self defense/house protection/concealed carry.
Also, for hunting small game: rabbit and squirrel, dispatching vermin:
raccoon, skunk, possum, for killing rattlesnakes, butchering livestock,
informal target shooting, etc. In additon to the .357 Magnum this remains
highly practical for the citizen owning but one handgun only. Or even for
their first handgun. There are various .38 Special loadings for different
purposes. I will itemize them in next posting.

Just put a couple adult hogs out of their misery on a friends farm this
morning with my Ruger LCR and two Winchester white box hollow point +P's.
Conclusion is if it can take down adult hogs with one shot from 10ft and
kill Oswald, no worries as a carry.

I have always been a fan of the .38 special, I currently own four; my
favorite is my S&W model 67 combat masterpiece. I also own two .357, one of
them is the S&W model 60. That is the gun I carry most, it is kept loaded
with a hydra shock round, 110 grain I believe. This round is extremely
effective, I recommend .38's to all people who enjoy shooting. By the way I
enjoyed your presentation, GOOD JOB.

Ruger LCR .38 +P. Best conceal gun I've ever owned. Durable, reliable,

1. Rimfires (.22LR, 17HMR etc) definitely a bad idea. 2. Centerfires
(almost everything else) should not be a problem Truth is, the "Never Dry
Fire a Gun or you will damage it" myth stems from the rimfires. The best
answer is; Read the user manual. If it states never dry fire, then don't do

Ouch! I hope you have your details reversed somehow friend. If you somehow
fit a 357mag into a 38spl and fire it, you are on the fast track to a
catastrophic failure, ie blow-up in your hand. Please be certain you have
the correct info.

Автор BKOLewis ( назад)
Revolvers, yes. Autos, no (exception: I recall one auto marketed to fire
both but I don't remember the make, nor did I followup since)

Автор BKOLewis ( назад)
Good vid, as usual. Like your stuff. I don't like to knitpick but..
Cartridge / casing visual comparisons can mislead and confuse folks. 9mm
para is potentially more powerful despite the 38spl larger casing. Oh...
and the 638 has a shrouded hammer. The S&W Bodyguard is an example of an
internal hammer (sorry, mega knitpick). :) Thanks for the vid bud!
