saw some .38 special +P JHP at Wal Mart. What does +P stand for? Can I use it in my Rossi .38 special snubby?

+P means plus pressure. They are loaded to higher than "normal" pressure. Refer to the owner's manual or the Rossi web site to see if they are "safe".

Personally, I wouldn't use +P ammo in a Rossi... even "if" the manual said it was OK. +P really puts a lot of stress on the frame.
