    Back to the basics. Part 2.

    I picked up the Model 10 I spoke of earlier. Poor pictures, but nice gun. I hope to shoot it tomorrow.

    A pretty standard 5", fixed sight, Model 10, I suppose. But I like it.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Cool

    For someone like myself who graduated from the police academy in 1968 and carried a 4" Model 10 S&W for several years that brings back memories of a time gone by. Beautiful revolver. Congrats !

    Wow! A very clean example of a timeless design.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
