.38 Super in a .38 Special
I recently inherited some firearms, 2 of which are .38 Super, an AMT Backup and an EAA Witness.
My wife uses a S&W .38 (5 shot "snubby") for home protection when I'm not there. Today as we were heading to the range for a little r&r, she picked up a box of the .38 Super's and asked, "These are for my gun, right?"
Although I have a couple of .357's, I've never worried about her putting .357 cartridges in her .38 because they won't fit. However, the .38 Super's go right in the cylinder. If she makes a mistake, is it dangerous to fire the .38 Super's in her .38?
Also, I don't know much about AMT and EAA. They feel good in the hand (especially the EAA Witness) and the performance numbers I have found for the .38 Super's seem to be better than 9mm. What are your feelings about these weapons and this caliber.
The AMT certainly fits my front pocket well and I am considering using it as my carry gun (due to the way I dress, a front pocket carry is the only practical way for my to carry concealed).
One last question, his collection contained a semi that says, "Made by FEG HUNGARY" and is in 9mm Browning Short (which is, I think, .380). It is a nice looking little gun, but I can find almost no information about it on the net. Any of you guys know anything about it?
My Uncle had quite a collection, mostly handguns and mostly S&W. Colt and Glock, but I need to find out as much as I can about these "odd" guns.
