    I dodit it again, another snubby.

    Went to the gun show in Raleigh today and just could not leave without purchasing a S&W Model 10-5 I found on a table. Bought it more as a bit of nostalgia since it is the same model and type as I carried while on active duty. According to the seller it was made in 1972, which is just before I started flying.

    Sharp lookin' snubby. One of my J frames is stainless, the other is matte. I'd love to p/u a blued j frame or even a full size model 10 w/ a bull barrel. That is what I learned to shoot on. Great firearms. Enjoy!

    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!

    That's it! No more for you! Now young man, I want you to wrap that up and send it to me immediately! You have many, I have none, we must "level the playing field" or I will call the President and report you.

    Congrats!

    I have a 10-5 2" also, only with a square butt. The round butt version looks and carries better, IMO.
