To correct myself. The model 30 was a six shot .32 cal.
So you probably have the, 5 shot, Chiefs Special Model 36, from the 50's.
Like others have said, practice. It's a suprise. Stick to body mass, it's not a target revolver. My wife has it to carry, but she knows how to use it!

Will Rogers once said, "There are three kinds of men. The one that learns from reading. The few who learn from observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves." Your friend has an awful lot to learn about guns.

I agree. Some people's problem is they see a younger person and dismiss them. When I was a kid I used to clean guns at the police poker game. As the officers came in they unloaded the guns and placed them on my table. I always made more than my dad did at the game. But that is how I started my history with guns.

Model 10 would be a K frame. The Mdl 36, Chief's Special is a J frame.

Would not shoot a lot of really hot ammo thru either, but one or two cylinders is not likely to cause a catastrophic failure. Accelerated wear and tear- yes.
