    Colt have made Lightweight Commanders in .38 Super from time to time, if weight is the concern. A quick search found a Talo version for sale at Bud's and I'm sure there are others.

    Thank you Sir, I will look into it... but I was really looking for something other than a 1911.

    That was nice of you but I did look and if you check your link you will see that "used" Witness in NOT in stock.

    That Witness is gonna be pretty heavy too. All steel frame.

    A bobtailed Colt LW commander 38 super would make a fantastic carry piece.

    I only grabbed the first link that popped up. They are out there though and the conversion kit is also available new to mount on whatever frames you find.

    All the talk about ammo availability and still reloading is the cheapest ammo choice. For those who believe a lawsuit will destroy them after a gunfight using home rolled ammo (Which I strongly doubt) practice with the reloads and carry the high priced "Killer" commercial ammo.

    I'm still on my first box of expensive commercial "Tactical" ammo, because after all shootouts are exceedingly rare. You can buy bullets in most common shapes so once you know your carry ammo is reliable you can duplicate the feel and shoot thousands of rounds a year at about half the cost or less.

    I have Super 38s in the Colt and Sig platforms. Some people also shoot them in their .38 Special/.357 revolvers (yes, it works)...

    Why would it not...if it fits in the chamber...as the cartridge is semi-rimmed
