    I Only Have a Nickel

    One nickel plated gun that is. Itís a model 10-7, round butt with 2 inch barrel and magnas numbered to the gun. Serial number makes it a 1981, the year I graduated from high school. It has a pinned barrel, though those were discontinued sometime in 81. I have had it for maybe 2 years and had it to the range twice. It shoots great and apparently doesnít know its a snub nose because it shoots like a big gun

    Sweet! As you discovered barrel length has little to do w/ accuracy. a longer sight radius helps but even a short barrel will stabilize a bullet just fine.

    Good looking gun.. My wife carried one of those as her duty sidearm back about 45 years ago.. It still does duty on the nightstand by her bed.
    I wouldn't want to be between her and a bad guy if the stuff hit the fan.

    Nice! I generally like a longer snoot.

    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If itís endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If itís unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.

    I like the way Nickel looks but just too hard to keep clean. That one is great looking and a nice carry. For some reason you might have to get a Nickel mate

    I always told Curt that I didn't think I would ever get a nickel gun. I like the looks, but if the nickel starts flaking they look bad and there isn't much you can do about it. When I saw this one I really checked it over well for flaws or damage to the finish and found it was fine. I figure I am competent enough to keep it looking good under my watch and at just under $450 out the door how could I resist
