You made several points that caused me to have reflective thinking. In 1970, I was hired by a police department that allowed "Any Carry" of any handgun an officer could qualify with that was 9mm or larger. As "Badge 231" I went to the gun shop and paid $105.00 for a new S&W M28 4-inch .357 Magnum. Back at the station, I was told I could ONLY use Round Nose 158 grain .38 Specials in my M28!

Fortunately, six weeks later I was called to go to the 12-week training to be a federal agent. I still have that M28 Smith, but it is not stoked with Roundnose .38 Specials.
