Like @sspoom said, in general, a .38 special and an 9mm are very close, when it comes to ballistics, and they both have a wide variety of ammo available. But a .38 special is meant to be used in revolvers, and 9mm is meant for autoloaders. I'm sure there is a Paul Harrell video comparing them, if you want to search his channel. The reasons I recommended a .38 special to you have already been stated: revolvers are a lot simpler to learn to use than semi autos. Basically, you just pull the trigger and you have five or six shots that are almost guaranteed to go bang.

The .32 Long ammo you are talking about for a .32 revolver is rare, hard to find, and probably more expensive than .38 special ammo. I could probably find a dozen shops, both big box and gun stores, within a 20 minute drive from me in Podunk, TN that could sell me a box of .38 special ammo. I bet I would be hard pressed to find one that has a box of .32 Long in stock. No demand for it.

I never have tried to shoot a shotgun one handed.,...hmmmmm. I could handle the recoil without getting on YouTube I think, but could I hit a clay pigeon?

I've actually fired my Mossberg (with pistol grip) one handed, and I'm not quite as big as Arnold. ;-) It's not really that hard. But yea, accuracy suffers. How accurate do you have to be with a shotgun at 20 feet though?

That is a nice gun btw. I have a model 12 Winchester, 16 gauge. But it has a choke on it. I think I would be on You Tube if I tried to one hand that.

Henry has gone to side loading gates as standard, and I have pretty much decided to trade in my previous model Henry Big Boy .44 magnum carbine on a new side gate loading model in the "X" architecture.



Will post here once I finalize it.

My everyday carry.
Sig P226 SAO Legion series.
This is an absolute gem and I couldn't be happier with the pistol. It's a little pricey but I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for. I'm selling off most of my stuff because too many things had become "safe queens" and were never used. Ideally, I'm going for two pistols, a shotgun, and a rifle (rifle is the next post).

So Massachusetts is a bit dumb when it comes to its firearm laws and compliance requirements.

This is a big scary AR-15 which is a powerful assault rifle that is too dangerous for the common peasant to own chambered in 556 or 223.

But this friends.....

Is no problem at all.
PTR 91 chambered in 308 with pre-ban 20rnd box magazines.
I'll just let you guys try to wrap your heads around that.

Is an AR-10 legal in MA?

California has absurd laws too.
Honestly, I couldn't tell you if it is legal or not, I've seen ARs chambered in 6.5, 300 blackout, and .22, that were for sale.
The laws are created under knee jerk reactions to events that happen around the country by people that don't know anything about firearms. That G3 clone is a great example, I bought it from a gun shop and walked out the door, no problems, totally legal. You can even buy a Tavor in 556 if you want one. Magazines have to be ten rounds unless they are pre-ban, no bayonet lugs, there are rules on pistol grips on rifles, no collapsible buttstock, no flash hiders but compensators are good along as they are pinned or welded in place, and lots of other rules. Of course, none of this applies to the police departments, they can buy whatever they want. Personally, I think that whatever the police are allowed to have is what the citizens should be allowed to own.
