Neeraj 'The Ridge' Nagarkatti:
I was wondering if anyone knew what the '10' means in 'ten in my hand and a gleam in my eye'? Someone suggested 10 fingers? Others suggested a 10 dollar bill? Any ideas? (see below)

Cheers,
N

Got my **10** in my hand and a gleam in my eye

He's referring to his 10-inch-long penis.
Hence the gleam in his eye.

Since money is mentioned in the previous line, I suspect it's a 10- dollar bill. I'm not aware that there's any idiom relating to 10 fingers..

I figured it was a kind of gun, like a 9. But I was hesitant to post this because "10 mm" didn't sound like a type of gun thankfully someone else was able to find the real origin (Mac 10).
