I'm pretty well fixed in my self defense rounds, now. I have 2 .45ACPs, I have 3 9x19s. I have 3 .357 magnums that I consider suitable for self defense. I have 3 .38 specials.
Nope, I'm good.

Don't be making fun of the .38LC.
With a 150gr bullet, in it's original heel based bullet configuration, and a full case of Goex FFFg, it produces numbers in the .38 +P range. Been there, seen the chrono readings myself.
It didn't run into issues until they converted it to modern mostly inside the case bullets. That robbed it of powder capacity since they didn't lengthen the case and bullet weight since they made the bullet diameter smaller.

The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro
The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell
LOL, sounds like this thread has run its course and it is time to close it up.
Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.
