What .38 would you carry if you can't carry +P?
I have acquired a very early S&W Centennial (most folks call them the Model 40) which is obviously pre +P (very pre, made in year one of manfacture) and would like some carry ammo suggestions. I know I can take a chance on +P but why blow my hand off trying to shoot the BG. So how about a good and correct choice? I handload, so I could roll them up with Hornady Critical Defense bullets. But I prefer to carry factory ammo and reserve my handloads for the range.
So weigh in guys (and gals) this is something we all need to have discussed.
