    Outdated firearm. Boston needs to let semi autos into rule 400. But....do a background check and let the speshul PROVE they are competent and proficient with it FIRST.

    Subject is opinions on hat control. Do civilians really need the same type of hats as police and military??

    This is crazy! Who decided .38's are the weapon of choice was probably on point 50 years ago.... But seriously why aren't specials updated this century?

    I would wager that there are more bad guys pushing up daisies as the result of a police .38 Special revolver than all other guns combined.

    I carried a S&W Model 10 for almost 5 years as a BHA cop, patrolling Roxbury during the crack wars of the 80's and 90's, and never felt out-gunned, because I constantly practiced re-loading and got to the point I was almost as fast with a speedloader as with a semi-auto magazine change.

    Proper ammunition and shot placement matter a lot more than how many rounds you can carry in a magazine. That same Model 10 revolver is now my wife's at-home gun, and I'm quite confident it will ruin the night of whoever comes calling with evil intentions when I'm at work.

    It gives me confidence knowing you're my competition getting on as a LEO. No offense.

    nah, it'll make you a better gun fighter.

    things like shot placement and good cover will become very important :D

    They all bitch about the .38, when it is better than no gun at all. I scored a consistent 100 out of 100 with a revolver, while with S/A, I am between 96 and 100

    Who cares? A Six-Gun, is better than no gun

    In case the .38 doesn't provide enough penetration, I carry this:

    Of course there's pro's and con's to all guns. But if you doubt the revolver, take a minute and watch Jerry Miculek in action. He'd ruin their day....
