    In a nutshell: Inherited a H&R 38 S&W revolver from my Mom. Solicited opinions on whether or not to actually shoot it. Took it to the range this afternoon and let 'er rip.
    5 rounds, about 10 yards. Didn't even hit the paper. Cylinder was stiff coming out of the frame, lead splatter all over the forcing cone. Guess I'll put it in a shadow box and consider it a heirloom. :rolleyes:
    Anyone want to buy a partial box of Rem 38S&W??

    You are a braver man than I, but I salute you. I myself am a member of the 'Why have a gun if I can't shoot it crowd' also. Thankfully, it stayed in one piece and you didn't get hurt.

    NO !

    Shadow Box is a good idea. Unless a gunsmith you REALLY trust says it is OK to shoot. Then ask him to fire the first 2 cylinders full......

    I'm really not sure how one ships ammo through the mail.
    Lots of mail order places do it all the time, they only require some proof of age.

    I've never met a gun I wouldn't shoot. I would have shot that gun also. A little lead splatter never hurt anyone.:D
