I would say any K-frame revolver would safely handle today's +P ammunition. It just isn't all that hot. The much touted +P FBI load is a 158g SWC at 800 fps to 900 fps, depending on barrel length. Back in the day the standard 38 Special load was a 158g RN at 800-850 fps. These days that qualifies as +P.
