    From the 1909 S&W Catalog:

    Note that when discussing smokeless being dangerous vs. black powder, they were talking about reloaded cartridges. They go on to say commercial factory loads are fine in their handguns and they warranted them if smokeless powder was used. And, the smokeless factory loads today are well below the factory loads in 1909. +P merely takes us back to near the old factory loads. I'm not saying you should always shoot +P, but you can consider using it if you want to without damaging your gun. The .44 HE was designed with the .44 Special smokeless cartridge in mind.

    The .38 Special 158 grain lead round nose has been the standard service load for a very long time. A 148 grain hollow base wadcutter would be a little lighter and likely more accurate. If you are considering a SD revolver and I believe that to be a grand idea, Model 10s are essentially the same piece, can be found for similar money, are endorsed for +P usage, and can be returned to the factory if needs be.

    $230 in my neck of the woods for a decent S&W is a bargain any day!

    Hello. Try Numrich for the grips.

    to the forums from the Wiregrass, DarynJ! There are many manufacturers that make grips for the .38 M&P revolver. Does yours have a square or round butt? Please post some pictures...we love pictures and can help you better by seeing your gun.

    It's a K frame. Round butt or square butt? Without pics only you know!
    Try searching Ebay. There are usually oodles of K frame grips listed. If you want a set correct for the time period of your revolver post the serial number, found on the butt, and we can point you towards the right style. It's not necessary to post the whole number, just X out the last three digits , like this, 1234xxx.

    I have an M&P from the same time and shoot it with standard .38 Spl. loads with no problem. No +P!
