Finally fired my once unfired model 10-5

We'll I took the plunge and bought sum hogue grips for my unfired 1972 model 10-5, took it my job ( got to like working outside in a gun friendly job) and shot it finally this morning. Target is 12 round of pmc 38
Special at 10 yards standing.
Has to be one of the most accurate pistols I've shot to date with fix sights and since the weather is changing, it will be my carry gun.
Guys who work for me said there's no way they carry as they say old handgun but after shooting it, they changed there tune quick. I figured if you can't do it in 6 rounds than you not going do it in 15 or so and chances are you shouldn't be we're you at to begin with!
Thanks for looking

Nice! I have a feeling that you are really going to get a lot of enjoyment out of that 10! Plus, you may have converted some "semi guys" to a whole new experience! Thanks for sharing!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63

The S&W Mod 10 has saved more bacon than Denny's sells in a year...
That's pretty much the defacto standard police revolver of the 20th century.

(plus - you're only a speed loader away from another 6,,,, )

Guns are made to be shot-not preserved for prosperity's sake. Enjoy your Model 10.
