Generally speaking I would say the 9mm is superior to the 38 special.

However I have shot the 38 special +P lawman from my Coonan Classic and they are indeed pretty stout for 38s. In my 6 inch Coonan they where clocking in at about 1330FPs.

Sorry I dont have any pictures like I do of the 357s so you will just have to take my word for it. That said the Coonan is famous for shooting faster than simular length revolvers.

I have pictures of it shooting the Bufflao bore 357 magnum 125 grain rounds at 1800FPS.

Why did this become a my caliber is better discussion?
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.

all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...
