Now that is a History lesson.

Very nice, thanks.

You said it shoots a rimless .38

Is that some easily available caliber I already know about (like .380 ACP or something)?

Or are you going to be in the world of hyperexpensive ammo and custom made reloading dies?

Or maybe this thing is just too darn rare to shoot at all?

I guess you can tell I'd never make it as a real collector. Someone would offer me an ultra-rare historical gun for dirt cheap, and I'd pass on it because the ammo it would compel me to buy new dies ;-)

Same case (and dies) as .38 Super, just a lighter charge.

This is, incidentally, why all .38 Super sold in the U.S. is headstamped "+P".

Yep. .38 ACP, AKA .38 Automatic. The popular race-gun 9mm is .38 Super Automatic.

9x21mm IIRC
