    “Plus-P” (+P) ammunition generates pressures in excess of the pressures
    associated with standard ammunition. Such pressures may affect
    the wear characteristics or exceed the margin of safety built into some
    revolvers and could therefore be DANGEROUS. This ammunition
    should not be used in Smith & Wesson medium (K frame) revolvers
    manufactured prior to 1958. Such pre-1958 medium (K-frame) revolvers
    can be identified by the absence of a model number stamped inside the
    yoke cut of the frame (i.e., the area of the frame exposed when the
    cylinder is in the open position).
    Enjoy!

    I wasn't REAL worried, Gman, just giving the 'official' statement. If I ever am lucky enough to get an older Smith, I am not going to worry. Not one bit.

    Please don't let an old lady use Glasers!. She will only get a handful of shots if she is using a revolver, so arm her with something that is proven to stop. Critical defense aren't great either. Check out the Hornaday Critical Duty if you like the "Critical" flavor. Get her a box of Gold Dots or Federal HST.
