you might check at Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore. They have police trade-ins most of the time... don't know if they have any skinny barrel model 10's though...
I always felt that if I got to the point where I thought it was time to bury my firearms, it was actually time to pick them up..

The link below is to a S&W 10-5 with pencil barrel. I have bought a few guns from Yankee...they are good to go. Check the S&W page...they have a couple guns you might be interested in.

Thanks you guys! I found one on the Yankee website I am interested in. One more question for you guys. Do either of you know of a place that has a decent price on a holster for a model 10 4 incher? Again maybe an old police one just to cheapen it up a bit. I would prefer there to be a strap over the gun, but if they don't its not a deal killer. Just as long as there's something to keep my gun from falling out. Thanks guys!

Since you choose to identify your place of residence as "Mars" you do yourself a dis-service.

If you lived in AZ, that would be one thing. If you live in AK, another.

Are you looking for IWB or OWB?

Do you want to play guessing games, or do you have a serious question?

Believe it or not I set my whole account here up on my IPhone. A pain yes, but it was the only way I could at the time. So while entering my information I suppose I misspelled "missouri" and auto correct took it upon itself to do me the favor of placing in "mars". My questions both were serious and I do not understand why it would be a guessing game.

Well might be because I live in New Mexico and I like a holster with a full flap to keep some of the dirt out. If I lived in Tennessee I wouldn't worry too much about that.

Ever fall in a snowbank and get a holster/pistol barrel full of snow? Not a problem in Florida. Usually.

AZ's big shop; sells a lot of NYPD turn-in model 64s & a few model 10s. They run around $200-250.00. Call for updates or details.
The printed catalog is free & lists most used .38spl revolvers(police models).
NOTE: they might be DA only(no trigger spur).
