Btw, you go tell the many (and I mean MANY) law enforcement and former military people I know who own 357's and use .38 special rounds on the gun range they're "not knowledgeable about shooting".
You'd walk away feeling like a fool.
Gray, re-read my post, and re-read Brain's as well. You're all over the place. You made a point to disagree with him, when he is absolutely correct. And I clearly made a point to say .38sp is what what I shoot through my .357 most often at the range.
Ad speaking relatively, the .38 is far off from a .357 as far as stopping power goes. You're friends with ALOT of officers, apparently. Do any of them carry .38's? Probably not. .40, 9mm, and .357 is the lilely answer.
That being said. Shot placement and practice counts more than any caliber.
