Default S&W Model 10-5 with 6" barrel. Just because.

I'm a huge fan of Smith's K frames. I now have eight various K frames to include four M&P/Model 10 revolvers. For awhile I've been wanting to add a long-barreled Model 10 to my collection. By the fifties the 6" barreled revolver was on it's way out with law enforcement. It just wasn't very comfortable to have a long barreled revolver while sitting in a car. But S&W kept offering the 6" barrel until the mid-eighties. Mine was made in 73. Now I need a Model 10 snubnose (2" bl) and also one with the 3" barrel. This one has some real Old School charm. The funny thing is when I was younger (we're talking over fifteen years ago) I didn't appreciate the Model 10. It was just a plain old 38 Spl revolver. No bells and whistles. I don't feel that way about it anymore. It's a very functional revolver, but also very well made and capable of some impressive accuracy.
