    I just realized that I still have over 500 rounds of 38 S&W and only one gun that takes that cartridge, my Webley and Scott Mk IV. I guess I need to take it to the range and start using up that ammo.

    Seems like you need to get another 38 S&W to justify your ammo count!

    I stupidly sold my Norinco that was converted to a 38 Super without getting rid of the 38 Super Auto ammo. I have about 500 rounds of that I can't use.

    They work in 44 magnum. Sounds like a good excuse.

    How about this 9mm? 3 of them are 9x23.

    Excellent! And the other is the 9mm Winchester. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9×23mm_Winchester

    NOT the 9mm Winchester Magnum- which is 9 x 29.

    And there other "9" mm cartridges- the Glisenti, Makarov, Ultra, 9x25 Mauser, 9mm Federal- you can actually put together a heck of a cartridge collection just with nominally 9mm rounds.

    If I were you, I would hang on to that Gun and Ammo. Don't shoot it now, you may have to use it later! Just a thought!

    yep, keep it, it doesn't eat and you don't owe taxes on it.
