The .38 Special is a popular self-defense choice for a vast number of gun owners. Guns chambered in this caliber produce manageable recoil and are known for accuracy; in addition, they are often have small enough frame that they can be easily concealed, adding to their appeal. It isn’t just the general public that favors them, either. For more than 70 years the .38 Special was the standard issue for police departments across the country, and although it’s since been replaced with larger calibers, many officers continue to carry them as BUGs (backup guns) or even as their main carry off-duty. If you own a gun chambered in .38 Special, make sure you keep it loaded with good quality defense rounds.
