    I'm not crazy about the way a 2" barrel .38 shoots. Most people are not very good shots with them unles they practice a lot with it. Ballistically a standard .38 round out of a 2" barrel is inferior to a .380 acp. When you add +P to it, it gets better, but then you get into controlability issues. I'll just take my 13 +1 Beretta with .380 Silvertips or Hydra-Shoks and be happy thanks.
