  1. Reloading
    So I just finished testing 5 different 38 special reloads that I loaded up. When I finished I noticed that the brass was dirtier then factory ammo that I shot. Not a big deal but I am assuming it is because of the powder I am using (unique). But I also noticed that there was a good bit of powder...

    TLR-1 stops .38 round at Point Blank An officer with the Bensalem Township Police Department in North Carolina was possibly saved by the Streamlight TRL-1 mounted on his Glock stopping a .38 caliber round from a criminal's revolver. Apparently two officers were searching a house, opened a...

    I have been checking out the Rossi M92 .357 Mag / .38 Special Just like lever guns. I can't find the answer to my question, Would anyone know if it will handle the .38+P round? not as a steady diet but "just in case" I have some old Police carry stuff that I would like to use in an emergency...

  6. Revolvers Handguns
    Hey, just curious what people's thoughts are. This is apparently a 1920's colt police special in .38, from pics it looks pretty rough and has no trigger. Was curious if it's worth the investment of $150 or so. Looked around and the price seems to vary a lot on ones in good shape. I've been...
  7. Reloading
    Another reloading site gave me the following loading data because I couldn't it anywhere else. I'm using 125grain JSP made by Sierra, Sports Master (8310), with Titegroup pistol powder. I'm pretty sure the powder load is 4.3grs starter, and 4.6grs is the max. I also think the COL is 1.450". I'd...

    I recently aquired ammo from a widow of an old friend. In the crate i found boxes of Western 38 Automatic 130gr full metal case ammo. Are there any modern or readily available surplus guns that shoot this ammo. And will it work in a 38 super pistol. Always need an excuse to purchase another...

    I know you've been on the edge of your seat hoping for Part 2 of The Quest for the Ideal Carry Revolver. Unfortunately, thanks to nasty winter weather and the past week's wild ammo market, I haven't been to the range much lately. So until I get more trigger time with the revolvers I'm trying...
  11. Reloading
    Am loading my first batch and the lee Factory crimp die instructions say once you hit bullet with adjustment knob to then adjust 1/2 turn for light and full turn for a full crimp. I am using Rainer plated bullet w/o the cannelure. On a dummy round I tried a full crimp and then pulled bullet...
  12. Revolvers Handguns
    Is a 38 special revolver gonna be more accurate than a 357 shooting 38 special. Looking for a revolver for the range. Is constantly cleaning the shorter cartridge crude from a 357 shooting 38 special really that big of a deal?
  13. Revolvers Handguns
    I'm picking up an old S&W revolver for my Father, but can't figure out what model it is. The current owner has it listed on his license as a Model 18, but from what I can find on the net, all Model 18's were .22 versions of Model 15's. I am leaning toward it being a Model 14 (after further...

    Just washed with some clothes. The banging got so annoying while in the dryer I finally took the time to see what was causing the racket. A sparking clean 38 round. Thank god it didn't blow a hole through my dryer and shoot the washing machine.

  17. Revolvers Handguns
    I recently sent my mid 60's S&W .38 special to S&W for an inspection ( it was recently given to me by my Dad and he historically takes marginal care of most things ). It's in decent shape and seemed mechanically fine but I thought it wise to send for a pro to see. I recently fired it without...
