The short answer is not enough to matter. The differences between the individual barrels/guns will likely make more of a difference. This is something that keeps popping up. And I'll admit that I can't think of where I read the article that went.

I think most 38 special loads are aimed at the shorter barreled carry gun so I wouldn't worry any over it. The quality of the hit will likely matter more than whatever little bit of velocity is lost (and the numbers were real small).

Qwiks Draw gave a good write-up on some things to keep in mind with a comped gun. I just did a quick check and didn't see it but maybe he'll point you in the right direction.
