Hey there guys I'm a complete noob on the forum so pls fogive me. I own a 4th model smith and wesson in 38s&w. I would like to know if it is at all possible for me to use moon clips. It is a 5 shot revolver so would that be another complication?

The .38 S&W round is a rimmed cartridge and, as such, does not need a moon clip.

I know of no revolver chambered for .38 S&W having a cylinder milled to accept moon clips.
thank you soo much I figured not but always best to ask

You can have your revolver cylinder cut to accept moonclips. I send my guns to TK Custom but there are a couple of other places that can help you too.

Correct---but it's going to get expensive, and putting that kind of money into a hundred+ year old topbreak revolver might not be the best use of funds. In addition to the
cylinder cutting, the moonclips will be a custom proposition, and I'm guessing they will run $7-$8 per. I've got a nice post-war Webley MkIV-38 that I've eyeballed a few
times along those lines. Someday I might try to find a spare cylinder and machine it, hasn't happened yet. Moonclip revolvers are a hoot, I have a S&W 625 5" 45 ACP and a
8 shot S&W 627 357 mag that I run moonclipped 38 Short Colt in, plus a Second model Hand Ejector Smith that was originally 455 that has had the cylinder shaved.

Why does a dog lick it's balls?
It's a grooming and personal hygiene thing. As the genital area is a place in the body where infection is common, it's in their best interest to keep that area as clean as possible.

The correct answer within context of this thread is "because it can". IOW, in response to Ziggy asking why one would moonclip a .38, the answer is because "because you can".

I find it quite immature for anyone to to answer in the text you have. I may suggest you be careful what you post while on your parents internet account. It's 9:40 pm and a school night. Good Night.
