    I've heard the best way to shoot a .38 Special is to Hold on Loosely. :D
    Nice list of 38's, Mudman. -b

    I can hit the side of the mountain with buckhorn sites and my Lever gun.!My son in-law made me say that corny comment.That gong is really far away to,you can hardly see it.

    My AR-15 from the 1800’s.

    Good shooting. I never could find the gong but definitely heard the bullet strike. Just think artillery on a small scale and it's pretty amazing how far away you can hit something. Especially if you have a spotter.....and it's a heck of a lot of fun!!

    .38 is just a cool cartridge. For years I have shot a S&W mod 14 with 8 3/8 barrel but lately had the most fun with a Win 92 clone, .357/.38 by Puma.

    I used to have a Puma .38/.357 lever action rifle that was browned instead of blued. It was a heck of a shooter from what I remember, just don't remember what I ever did with it!
