Collect older handguns from Colt and S&W primarily
David/Dabney, how about some photos of both guns? Like you, I have a soft spot in my soul for the .38 Special revolver. With 37 years in law enforcement, I carried a few on/off duty, plus used them in Police Combat (PPC) competition. I'd probably pack one today, but the Federal outfit I work for hasn't allowed use of privately owned handguns for many years, so my duty holster is filled with "Tactical Tupperware." I won't debate the .38 Special standard 158 gr. LRN load with you...my last .38 Special duty carry load was the 158 gr. SWC-HP +P and I'd still be happy with it today. Hang in there and stay safe.
