I started out shooting handguns on a Model 10 HB, very similar (4" blued K frame) and if the action isn't beaten to hell they're good shooting and soft recoiling.
A 4" K isn't the ideal CCW piece but it's certainly hideable especially in winter.
If you have someone around who knows wheelguns, have them eyeball it, check the timing and forcing cone if possible. If it's an NYPD gun, it could be totally screwed or nearly unfired.....never know.
