No, I am not selling my .38's. I am in fact looking to purchase a new .38 when I can get the funds. I want an LCR. I was thinking about a small auto of some sort, but I have ostioporis (sp) and am concerned about racking a slide.
The .22 idea is simply because I do have more firearms in this caliber. It is an easy round to shoot. (my wife is not a gun person) Cheap to practice with and a lot more economical. I have always had a .22 rifle of some sort. But, the main reason is price of ammo.
