Do you want to save the samples or the statistics computed in each
sample? The latter can easily be achieved using the -saving()- option.
The former is harder. You'll probably have to abandon -bootstrap- and
code the loop yourself and draw random observation in each iteration
using -bsample-. It is probably most convient to store those samples
as fweights, like so:

forvalues i = 1/10 {
    qui gen w`i' = .
    bsample , weight(w`i')

Hope this helps,
