Should be fine. I wouldn't shoot them as a steady diet, even if you can afford them. Fine pistol for the .38 Special.

Yes.

If in doubt, contact Smith and Wesson. A steady diet might be an issue, but a K-frame should be OK, particularly one built that recently.

Scott,

You got good advice about the M10 S&W. An M10 was my issue duty gun in my service years and I carry a 2-inch M10 today.. As for +P loads, are you considering Factory or Handloads? Both should be fine, but a steady diet will cause set back and require refit as I learned at S&W's armorers school.

Over on the S&W if the gun has a model number then it is capable of firing plus P ammo. But not as a steady diet. Practise with the plus P but use standard ammo for range use then if you have a ccw then load your defense ammo. Frank

heck with prices being what they are..."make every shot count" means more then ever...Scott....will most surely limit any +P to a minimum

That applies to steel frames only. A Model 12 is not +P rated.

I'm guessing a Model 12 has a different frame made out of something other than steel?. Most likely aluminum ?. Frank
