|The Smith & Wesson .38 Special, also known as the .38 S&W Special, .38 Special, and .38 Colt Special (back in the day)
was introduced in 1902 for the Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver.
It was and is still used in many, many different countries for their military and police departments and is considered one
of the best handgun cartridges of all time, balancing recoil with takedown power.
Although replaced in modern times by more semi-auto firearms calibers, the .38 S&W Special in a “2" Snub Nose
Revolver” is still considered one of the best concealed carry firearms today in 2016.
That is over 110 years of great service and still going strong. No home or pocket should be without one.
