    The first indication a bad guy should have that I'm dangerous is when his
    disembodied soul is looking down at his own corpse wondering what happened.

    Hells Bells! New revolvers coming out of the woodwork and now new 38 Special rounds? Right now I'm at the point of not caring so much if any of this new stuff works that well, that'll all get sorted out in time. What I'm happy about is that at least people are trying, that's got to count for something. Trump said I'd get tired of winning but I didn't know he meant this.

    Don't do this to me. I've - for years - resisted the siren song of a M52 on the justification that, "I don't shoot enough Wadcutters and I'd never - ever - carry the thing." If there is some glimmer...minute glimmer...that I might carry a M52 I'm not sure temptation can be beaten back.

    Then again, I've repeatedly beaten back the siren song of a Coonan too...But that may not be the case soon...

    It does kind of look like a uncircumcised hollow point

    Colt MK IV S70 started life as a .38 Super, converted to .38 Special. Pinned grip safety, 2lb 12oz trigger. Grip fit to my father's hand.

    Probably tough to carry AIWB.

    Pic in no way does the bluing justice.

    This sems very familar. The original Hydrashok design, then called Scorpion, had a similar deep seated hollowpoint. I wonder if someone merely thought it would be a good idea if they brought back the design with a newer HST jacket and cavity profile.

    I have to post again to express my irritation here.

    Why won't Federal make a 147'ish grain HST in .38 Special? They make it in 9mm and the diameter is virtually the same...come on - seriously. Virtually every production Smith and Colt with fixed sights is regulated to 158-grain bullets, a 147-grain +P would get real close to POI/POA in a J-Frame.

    I thought it was discussed here that the steel and aluminum S&w's were calibrated at 158 gn but the scandium guns were more towards the lighter 110-135 gn p+ bullets.
