Colt .38 Super

Colt .38 Super

The .380 automatic or .38ACP had been around since about 1905 and was almost as powerful as the 9mm Luger, but the Colt Model 1900 that fired the .38ACP was incapable of firing a cartridge of any higher power, and high power guns, specially the easy to carry and conceal automatics were demanded more and more by the law enforcement community at the time, so Colt created the .38 Super +P.

Note: the '+P ' designation did not take effect until 1974
