I guess I'm an old-timer too, like your f-in-l Ralph. I wouldn't go
outdoors without my S&W Model 649 loaded with +P. If one's concerned about
only five shots, carry a second one.

In a given situation, shot placement matters most. I own several small
revolvers and really appreciate them for what they are. The shorter sight
radius and double action triggers requires more range time / training.
Once a person masters the revolver double action trigger, they will be more
effective with their shot placement.

Check your history regarding the FBI shootout. The FBI wasn't carrying .38
Specials. They had switched to 9mm according to literature that I read
after the incident. The relative ineffectiveness of the 9mm led to a change
to 10mm briefly and then to other calibers to accomodate the smaller hands
of women agents.

Some good info. I'm a .38 special man myself, not entirely inveterate but
close. He kind of wanks on the incidentals and the tangents, ie: "We go the
.380 the 9mm and...I use the Hornady...(so do I!) but what has this to do
with the history of the .38; he's also redundant which is to say not a very
good spokesman but his heart's in the right place.

get a 357 mag instead, then you have a choice of ammo, the frame size and
pistol price are about the same. I bought a Rhino 200DS which holds 6
rounds and practice with 38s

much better grips. Just saying.

saw a thief shot once on the right shoulder blade area, he died after 3
painful days, because the 38 from a snubby bounce around his insides
damaging his lungs and intestines.

What are your thoughts about the Ruger LCR .38 and what ammo would you
recommend for defense?

According to hundreds of autopsy reports. The best hollowpoint in a .38
spec out of a snubby has a 65% one shot stopper rate if the shot lands in
the upper chest. Shot out of a 4" barrel, the goes up to about 80%

All the guys out there that talk about the .38 being weak and the 357 being
the end all be all are full of crap. I was out shooting my AK 7.62x39 one
day and noticed a spent casing on the ground. I picked it up being VERY
impressed with the fact that it seemed to hold almost as much powder as my
AK rouunds. Well, it was a .38. That is a VERY powerful round, and the
whole FBI shootout in the late 80's that gave the .38 a bad name, had some
problems, few actually being with the caliber.

Автор CanyonDS9 ( назад)
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.

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.

Good backup gun but that's about it.

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

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.

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 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 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".

I was under the impression the barrel shroud wasn't added to the Agent
until 1973. I had a Cobra, about that time, and it was the new barrel
shroud, then. Prior to then, the ejector rod was exposed.

I have a question. As long as ammo like a 38+p is kept dry is there any
reason to not use it if the ammo is over 25 years old? Does time cause
gunpowder to lose its original power?

.38 is a deadly round! I was shot twice in my lower side with a .38
revolver back in 1980. I lost a kidney and part of my liver. I was lucky
the intruder didnt point it at my head or a vital organ, I wouldnt be here.
The rounds passed through me like butter and ricochet around the room after
they passed through me.

I prefer the .38 over the .380 acp for very concealable carry simply
because of the reliability of a revolver, and the superior stopping power
(~125g v ~90g). Also, you aren't going to have a real capacity advantage
with the 380 auto pistol because most hold 5+1. I have a S&W 637 that I
carry, and my wife has the Taurus model 85 poly, with a pink grip of

The best gun for close range defense is .38 snubbie...

...'pull the trig it goes bang every time,no fail to feed,stovepipes and
ejection probs.

What..only 6 rounds.?

If you need any more than that...you are in the wrong part of town.

I love my .357 Mag. because I can shoot .38 Special ammo, at a little
cheaper price, and when I reload I can reload my brass at .38 special
powder load, you just never want to go the other way, because if you put
the powder load for a .357 into a .38 special it could blow up the gun!!!

Are you sure the Colt Agent is 1962 vintage? I thought the Colt Detective
Cobra, and Agent with shrouded ejector, hand filling grips, and improved
didn't appear until after 1972 when Colt "modernized" their classic D-Frame
nosed .38's. Regardless it's an enjoyable video to watch. The venerable
and versatile .38 Special remains not only ideal for self defense/house
but likewise for various other purposes: small game hunting (rabbit and
dispatching vermin: raccoon, skunk, possum, venomous snakes such as
rattlesnakes, butchering livestock, etc. The 148 grain lead target
wadcutter is
practical for these various other purposes. CCI's class snake load: the .38
shot load: No. 9 shot, can shred a rattler's head up close!

I have carried the S&W 38 model ¨Chief¨ as an off duty and back up weapon
for over 30 yrs and I love this little gun. About 15yrs ago, I fired two
rounds into a suspects chest from less than one yard using the Speer Gold
Dot as he was trying to rob me while was off duty..He dropped about 5
seconds after being shot and died within 2-3 miutes of being shot. My wife
carries a model 642 in her purse- These are just great little guns. .

I have the airweight shown in this vid. Really like your vids by the way!
This S and W revolver, the airweight, has the internal lock. I bought this
for my wife and right out of the box it would not cycle for her and failed
to fire.It did the same with me. I took it back where it was purchased and
they told me it was user error. I disagree but I have read reports about
the internal lock causing problems with the cycling and that they are
sometimes intermittant. Even if I send it back to Smith and they say it is
OK, I still will not trust it and don't want it. My ethics say not to trade
or sell a gun I don't trust. What would you suggest in resolving this

Thank you Tom for all of your great videos. This video is one of my

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.

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!
