    All you have to do to realize this point is click on the new posts button, and look at all the threads that are being discussed.

    Out of the 50 or so youíll see, maybe five are gun-related. Thereís a bunch on COVID, a bunch on politics in general, a bunch on general news, but very little on guns.

    Iím not sure how, when, or why this happened, and Iím not saying itís good or bad, but over time the emphasis on guns has gotten less and less.

    That said, I do come here to learn more about guns and talk about guns, so I challenge everyone to do this: please start a new thread about something gun-related.

    Post about the last gun you bought, post about a gun you are going to buy next, post a thread about your dream gun, etc.

    Sh!t, I donít care, post about the most played out gun threads ever discussed like 9mm vs 45 vs 40 or whether 223/5.56 is suitable to take down a deer, but for the love of GodÖ

    LETS TALK ABOUT GUNS ON A GUN FORUM, FFS.

    Ok so A friend of mine purchased a .357 mag and he invited me out to shoot. So I go to a local store and pickup some ammunition for it [as not to feel too guilty shooting it] I get home and realize I got 38 S&W not the 38 special I was looking for.

    will it be 'safe' to also shoot 38 S&W in a .357 mag?

    I wouldn't think so but, (there's always a but) look at this as an opportunity to pick up a new gun. I mean what the heck you already have the ammo for it - right?

    38 Special will fire just fine in a 357, same as 44 Special in a 44 Mag. 38 S&W is a different cartridge altogether.

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".

    It's a bigger diameter and will not fit. Find someone with an Enfield, they'll be grateful you could actually find the stuff.

    Buying a matching gun is a great option. You can probably find one for the price of 3 or 4 boxes of ammo. They're fun.

    its a box of 50 I can't recall what I paid I am thinking it was 30 for the box, I will be happy to get what I paid but I am sure that shipping it will make it prohibitively expensive.

    It seems that the only responsible thing to do is to buy a new gun chambered in that caliber, or a different caliber, whatever.
