When you "need" a new gun. One excuse is as good as another. I work for a small private security company and there is talk that they may train us and authorise us to carry sidearms. So I "had" to have a new gun. Naturally.
Being a "revolver guy" I knew what I wanted. A 4" barrel, Model 10, 38 special. The 5" barrel, Model 10, 38 special, I already have, just wouldn't do.
And I found one. Whoever owned it before was so ashamed of this low capacity, low tech, old fashioned thing, that they apparently didn't take it out of the box very often.
Now you wait. They'll tell me they want us to carry a 9mm semi IF they go through with the plan. Oh No!! I'll have to go gun shopping AGAIN!
