$200 S&W Model 10-7 Range Report

You may remember the Smith I bought from my brother in law. I cleaned it up some, ordered and installed a new BlackSilver finger groove grip from Altamont Company. ($52.00+$6.10 shipping).
SHHH don't tell Brother BUT it is one fine shooting little snub nose. I was going to sell or trade for profit but it shoots so good I think I will keep it. The new grips really changed the looks of it.
Pics say a lot, what you guys/lady's think.

Wow brother you really had a time at the range today, those grips take that S&W 10 to a whole new level I really like them.

Thanks Chuck. The grips really made it pop. Almost went with the Super Rosewood but I thought they looked to much like the factory grip. Texted a pic to my brother in law, he didn't think it was the same pistol.

I really do need to check on a bag with wheels, my back is killing me. lol

I've been looking at range bags with wheels myself, I usually take 4 guns and around 400 rounds in addition to all the other usual range gear we need. Last time I weighed my bag it was 38 lbs.

G.P.S. Rolling Range Bag

I don't know, I didn't weigh mine today but it felt like it was pushing 50 pounds. (maybe I am just feeling old)

WOW, YES, that rolling range bag might be exactly what we need. I got an idea, you get one first and let me know how it works out for you then I will get me one. I could strap my other bag on top if needed.

Thanks I liked the looks and now that I have shot it with the new grips it improved the feel of the gun in your hand. The factory grips made even the snub nose feel barrel heavy.

You need a little red wagon with all the stuff you take to the range.

Well, that's the thing it all fit in my normal size range bag, four pistols, 24 loaded magazines, plus additional 100 rounds .45acp, two 50 round boxes of .38spl, + other normal gear. I knew I was in trouble when I picked it up off the dining room table.
