    Awesome thread about an awesome wheelgun. Now I'm on the hunt for a 10-8 because I love the bull barrel.

    I just acquired a S&W model 10-2 snub nose. I remember seeing the model 10 snubbie in a lot of cop shows and thought they were inferior to the more modern semi autos. After shooting it, I have changed my mind. This .38 packs a lot of punch for it's size. It's a great addition to my collection.

    Great thread, the first weapon I ever carried concealed was a 2-inch Model 10 issued by the USAF. While we carried the 2-inch we did qualify with the 4-inch Model 15. Just for nostalgia sake I just had to pick up a 2-inch Model 10 but I am still trying to find another holster like the one I used on active duty.

    But they just get better and better, Bryan. Each time, they get better. You should be proud!

    When I and my team was tasked with transporting and loading TS targeting code tapes we were issued an M10 or M15.

    It was the first revolver (and last) that I ever qualified with.

    My old Model 10 has taken most every thing that may be found in these parts of Texas including but not necessarily limited to: mice, rats, gophers, ground squirrels, snakes, turtles, birds, rabbits, jackrabbits, squirrels, armadillos, skunks ‘possums, ‘coons, ringtailed cats, a coyote, carp, gar, nutria, a few black bass, crow, duck, turkey, guinea fowl, feral dogs and cats, and deer.
    My favorite field load for the .38 Special, a 158 grain lead SWC over 4.8 grains of Unique, is generally what I use.
    No crickets or scorpions? Probably made those mice disappear in a "poof" of gray fuzz.

    I bet you smile when you consider the $75 you paid, the guard that thought he'd made a "deal," and that you've more than gotten your monies worth. What's not to like.

    I guess the first pistol I ever shot was at about the age 12. My Grandfather brought home, from the hardware store where he bought it, a brand new S&W .38 special.

    It was something like the one in the OP. I dont have a clue what model it was, but was a beauty.

    Got a blued 10 skinny (it lives in my small bug out bag in my truck) and a stainless heavy barrel (64). Love them both, but I must admit , my favorite is my 4" 66 that I've been toting for 30 years now. K frames are the bomb !!!!! I am a huge fan of a similar load, 158 LSWC over 5 grains of Unique. Great general utility load, and a tack driver in all my K frames.

    My S&W M10-14 is always with me when I go hunting, scouting, or general woods bumming. I thought that I was going to have to use it this year for a coup de grace on the buck I shot. When I walked up to it I wasn't aware where exactly the slug hit the animal. As I was lining up the sights for a shot he thankfully stopped thrashing about. I've been hoping to get a shot on a grouse with it this year. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get remotely close to these wiley birds this year, not even close enough for a shot with the shotgun. Lately I've been using a Lyman 358665 RNFP over 4.0gr of W231, it shoots extremely well in the M10. I have been Meaning to try that bullet with some Unique but haven't got around to it yet. Normally I like to use nothing but a 158gr SWC but that Lyman bullet is really growing on me.

    At the end of the day a Model 10 is just a .38 Special, and it does it very well.

    Got in on the deal at Bud's about 2 years ago and picked up a used M10 bull barrel, square butt for a decent price. I wanted it because my dad carried one for years as a cop and I really like revolvers. I love that gun. The action is like silk and it is a joy to shoot.
