You see that from time to time; it happened at a gun show I was at once. I see people putting their hand over the muzzle quite often, as if it is a safety measure and their hand will stop the bullet. Stupid thing to do.

From what I can tell the Model 10 wasn't made until 1957. Before that they were Military & Police. You may not be looking at the right serial number. The correct serial number is usually stamped on the butt of the gun, and most likely will have an Alpha char or alpha and number prefix, i.e. "A" through "Z".

If you can post or PM more info I can look it up in the book.
Correct, it was the Military and Police until 1957 which was when S&W began the number series. It was 10, 10-1, 10-2 and so on for model changes. The easiest way to find what model/ update it is, look under the cylinder crane and the model number is stamped there. Then the serial number and I can run it for the manufacturing date.

Some one tell me...was this a good deal...?

Remington 870 Wingmaster..vent rib..based on the serial number I believe it is a 1979 manufacture date. 2 3/4 shells..I think barrel length is 24-26 ". There is a sight bead halfway down the barrel and the standard bead at the muzzle. The breech bolt is "jeweled" and the carrier is chrome. Condition is unreal...looks as if someone bought it and never handled or shot it..no marks on the wood and the finish is 100 percent. This gun wasn't refurbished or refinished..it just looks like it is brand new.

I've always wanted one of these..saw it today while I was on pawn shop detail picking up some stolen items (perks of the job..check out all the guns while your working..lol..)

I gave them 350.00 out the door.

It's a Wingmaster so I think you did good especially if it's in mint condition.

These people who commit murder/suicides have to be convinced that the suicide part should be preformed first.

It's something you have to watch for.
Great! I just started working at a gun range this week!

The other store had one last year. A guy walked in, rented a .357, got ammo and a target. Walked on the range set up his target, ran it out to 7 yds, picked up the gun, aimed at the target, flipped the gun around and opened his mouth.

The guy that rented to him said he was as normal as the next guy. No indicators that anything was wrong.

Sure hope it doesn't happen again anytime soon… or that we can prevent it before it happens.

All the range shootings around here have made me wonder what would happen if a guy decided to start capping multiples before offing himself. If everyone is facing downrange, with partitions, the shots certainly wouldn't alarm anyone. Could catch lots of folks by surprise before someone took him down. Food for thought...

On second though, maybe I'll just go for a ride tommorow.

Get a small .357 for a carry gun.

The 1911 is just a bit smaller than the gp100 for carry.
