    .38 Super compact

    Thnx for look'n in * New Mexico here ~ wondering if any of you know of a .38 Super that is small enough to make a somewhat comfortable carry? example:
    7.25"long or less
    32oz wt. or less

    ALSO - my search for "serial number look-up" to find out what year a Colt is has been unsuccessful to date ~ any links?

    You would probably have to do a custom job to get something like that.

    But if you do go that route, have your gunsmith tune the extractor for rimless rounds, then you can carry 9x23 winchester rounds in the gun. They are the ballistic equivalent of a .357 magnum and very spiffy......

    I shoot 9x23's in my Kimber 38Super all the time and I've never had anything done to it. No hiccups at all.

    A hot 38Super load ain't nothing to sneeze at, and edr9x23super is right, the 9x23Win is even better.

    Sorry though, the Kimber Pro's and Colt Lightwieght Officer's are the smallest Super I know of.......

    I believe prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance should have REMAINED in schools, and the Ten Commandments should have REMAINED in schools, courthouses, and everywhere else it was before the ACLU got involved.

    Here ya go:

    Serial Number Data


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
