Well got it home, will update post with y pics after some cleaning, it is clean now, but it is one of my quirks, I always clean a new to me gun just to familiarize myself with it. It's a sweet little piece for sure!

I'm assuming you can dry fire practice these? Does anyone have a manual on teardown? Can someone date it for me?

IMHO, the 60 is pretty much the standard that snubbies are judged by.

I would strongly suggest the "Metro" or "FBI" load, 158 lead SWC hollow point +p for defense.

148 grain full wadcutter target loads are great for practice, and don't wear you gun as much as standard ammo.

My son had one for an approved back up. They were removed from the list as they failed the Plus P test. He gave it to me. What a fine little handgun, I am so glad they were not approved for +P loads.

I got some hollow point lead and copper bullets, and some 90 gr jacketed soft point ammo with it, I'm gonna try and find some ammo one night this week and give it a workout next weekend.
