.38 Special is found in many revolvers, and is a truncated version of the .357 Magnum. .38 Special rounds may be discharged from a revolver chambered for .357 Magnum.
.38 Super is an autopistol caliber. It is more powerful than 9x19, but less powerful than .40SW or .357SIG. Made famous by gangsters in the thirties, the .38 Super was capable of penetrating bullet proof vests- something the .45ACP could not. Today, the round can be stopped by most vests. It is relatively uncommon caliber. Several gun manufacturers produce nickel-plated 1911-style guns to discharge this round.
