MythDragon: but I imagine you could fire a .357 from a .38 as well. Once, at least.


Once would be all you would get. The gun will surely be dead, and you might be as well.
You will fragment the cylinder, in all likelihood, and may also mushroom the barrel in a catastrophic failure due to the charge being so heavy.
There is a good chance the frame will not bear up under the force and it may twist. If that happens it is anyone's bet where the pieces head off to/through.

This also assumes the .38 cylinder is long enough for the .357 load, some will not even fit it. And those that will won't be safe.

I would not advise such shenanigans.

Technically it would be twice.....
The first and last time. As your FARKTAG would likely be retired in memorium.
And we woudl then be deprived of your company and witty reparte.

/hey, can we get 'i drunk what' to try this shiat?
//OK, that's prolly mean

MythDragon: Sin_City_Superhero: Genju: Can't you use .38 special ammo in a .357? Backwards compatibility! Until you fire it, people wouldn't know which ammo is loaded.

Yeah. I have a .357 Magnum. I have a box of .357 shells at the house, but mostly I buy .38 rounds. They're much cheaper than the .357 bullets. It's kind of neat to load three .38 rounds, followed by three .357 rounds... Bang Bang Bang BOOM!!! BOOM!!! BOOM!!!

Did that to my brother with a old Ruger police issue. He had never fired it before, so I loaded him up with 5 .38s and made sure the last one was a +P .357.  He fired that last one and was left with a look of utter shock. Best WTF face ever.

And Sin_City, I've never had the desire to try this, but I imagine you could fire a .357 from a .38 as well. Once, at least.


Pretty sure a .357 shell is too long to fit into a. 38 gun.

HotIgneous Intruder: Just one citizen with a concealed carry permit could have prevented this.


Well that's interesting because just one citizen with a concealed carry permit caused it in the first place.

There are a few instances where this can happen. (no i am not going to divulge in case some dummy goes and tries it and then i get implicated)
