.38 Special 130 grain Silvertip at 925 fps from a four inch barrel (expect less from a 2 inch)
for 247 pounds of muzzle energy. .380ACP 95 grain Silvertip at 955 fps for 192 pounds of muzzle energy. Notice how I compared standard pressure Winchester Silvertips. The J Frame holds 5 rounds. The Sig holds 7 in the magazine (most load the chamber for 8) which would you choose ? Why ?:fuss:

I actually switched from a P232 to a S&W 37. Shot both into a phone book, try it, you'll switch too. Also I carry mine as a back up on my ankle, the SW is more concealable (smaller butt prints less in pants leg.) You can always load +p's in the .38. And as any revolver fanatic will tell you , if you practice you can reload a revolver as fast as a semi auto, if it even gets that far....

FOR A BACK UP OR CCW WEAPON I WOULD PREFER THE .38 SIMPLY BECAUSE I TRUST A REVOLVER WITH MY LIFE MORE THAN A SEMI. NEVER SEEN A REVOLVER STOVEPIPE HAVE YOU!?
