    I've had several over the years but down to only two right now. The reason I like them is simple. With the right load, it gives me low-end .357 Mag ballistics in a firearm that I shoot very well.

    I have never owned a .38 Super. I believe 1911s should be .45 ACP unless they are 10mm.

    Only have two. A BSS Custom, and an Enhanced Model. Both from the 1990’s.

    I currently have a Les Baer Premier 2 and a Chambers Custom 'Retired Ladies Gun'. The Chambers gun is a convertible and also has all the parts fitted for 9mm switch over. I did learn that there are some of 38 Supers with .3565" bores while others like Kart, LB & a few other makers that use a .355" bore. I load 9mm bullets for mine and get good accuracy due to the bore size.

    I have only one. Started live as a 9mm Para I changed the barrel. BAR-STO .38SA. I like it and it works very well. 125gr bullet over Unique. Shoot's better than me.
