I presume there was previous owner. Or is this another reason not to valet park an M3?

.38 special is a revolver caliber. It doesn't spit the casings out like a semi-auto does.

We had a Chevy truck when I was a kid that my sister ran into a ditch. It knocked loose a tooth crown that someone must have lost at the GM plant (we were the original owner).

It also knocked loose a bunch of #4 turkey shot, but there was no mystery where that had come from

My first semiautomatic pistol used 38 special cases. Great target pistol!
Ejects like other semiautomatic pistols. Here's a link for more info.

Definitely a revolver cartridge though. I would bet 99.9% of guns chambered in .38 special are revolvers. That is a fairly obscure pistol, but looks like a nice one.

Figured if someone wanted to bring up an "exception to the rule" they would have used the Desert Eagle (357 mag, but can shoot .38 special also if modified).

I guess it's a geography thing. Where I'm from, finding that under the seat of a used car would be about as remarkable as finding loose change.

I hear dealers in Texas provide free pistols instead of TVs or gas grills as incentives
