    First up is the 2 inch barrel S&W model 10. I really love snubbie K frames. Accurate and much easier to control than a J frame for the gorilla handed men of the world. All shooting was done with a mix of ammo including 158 grain FMJ, 135 Grain JHP, and 130 grain LRN. Everything grouped about the same and it was all accurate (about 300 rounds fired). Finally, a pic of the now filthy 46 year old model 10.

    Next up is the 10mm Longslide Para with some 155 grain Corbon DPX. My chroni clocked it at 1315fps on an average of 10 shots with a small SD which is quite a bit faster than advertised. This will be my carry load when I get a rig for this gun. Also, the Tripp Research Cobra mags with the hybrid followers performed perfectly. I really need more of them.

    Nice groups with both guns! Really like the long slide look of the 10mm. Para LS Elite Hunter!

    Also, I like the Corbon DPX 155 grain load. It will make a good SD load as it was relatively low flash:

    Nice shooting! Looks like your brass is flying at about a 45° angle to the ground, heading for the next county!

    Are you a member over at the 10mm forum? Those guys would love a review I'm sure.

    Also, great snubie grouping. When I borrow someone's snub my groups are not even close to that. I should look for a K frame. Thanks!
