it should be noted that ammo makes a big difference and many people might agree the .38 is a prime example. some of the cheap( sometimes twice of the amount in the box) ammo is more for just practice even though all ammo can be deadly. It attracts a buyer trying to save money or someone that doesn't realize that not all bullets do the same damage. You have a much better chance for survival if someone has these loaded rounds rather than hollowpoints in the old cia/fbi rounds. I treat all ammo as SD/HD ammo, but some ammo is more of target shooting, practicing, etc if someone wants to maximize their buck or if he/she uses different ammo for different occasions/purposes.
