.023"
.38 (0.357”) - 9mm (0.354”) = 0.003”
If the legal requirement is a bullet that actually measures at least .38" across, not just a cartridge with a number that's equal or greater than ".38" in the name, then you'd need to subtract the actual diameter of the smaller cartridge from .38, as I did. .38-.357=.023, for .38 Special, so if DPS allows using a .38 Special they're letting .023" slide, not .003".

If the legal requirement is only that the cartridge have a number that's equal or greater than ".38" in the name, then I want someone to make a wildcat .17 rimfire named the .45 Loophole. :)
