My Single Ten is history

It finally happened. I put my Single Ten up for sale and it is now gone to a good home. I had it several years, but simply didn't shoot it that much. Beautiful gun, quality construction, felt great in hand. However, it didn't take me long to realize I just don't like the SA load & unload "one at a time." Good way to cut down on ammo use though. So, it is now in the hands of someone who will let it out to play more than I did.

I know what you mean, I've contemplated a Single 10 purchase but why waste a quality piece by leaving her in the gun cabinet ... Single 6 and Wrangler are there to fill that void ...

I have a Single 10 and would never part with it. I like the slower pace of shooting with a single action. It seems to give me a more satisfying experience than just firing a bunch of lead down range and going home.

I like my semis too, but a box or 2 of single action rounds is good therapy for me.

I too have a single Ten ...Love it! Shootin an SA doesn't have to be slow .....as for unloading = you faster with time and it really doesn't take that long .

I just don't like cleaning the cylinder.....But then again, What's the hurry?


Happy shootin to all,
Petey

Funny thing: I have come to adore the methodical "one at a time" loading of SA guns. So far I only have one, a NM Blackhawk. I find it goes to the range now more than the others, put together.

But we all have our preferences. A Single Ten is a gun I've considered for blasting whistle pigs.

I also have a Single-Ten, and I LOVE it. My first non-blackpowder SA revolver. Yes, it's different from a DA, but so are bolt-action rifles and double-barrel shotguns. Just another iteration of firearms. For squirrel hunting it is the ultimate handgun, with the red-dot I installed. PLUS, one can use sub-sonic loads without worrying about cycling issues!

My post was not intended to discourage anyone from buying a Single Ten nor criticize the gun. It was a great gun, it just wasn't for me. I'm down to only one .22 revolver, a S&W 617-6 that supplanted the Single Ten. Oddly enough, I almost always shoot it single action.

S10- totally relatable, agree with all you said; mine is on consignment at the LGS.
