Very nice. I carried a Model-28 when most everyone else in my department carried the 19. I'd love to have one just for old times sake. Oh well...

I carried an S&W Model 58 .41 Magnum as a duty handgun during most of the late 1980s, and frequently toted it concealed when off the clock during that time. I briefly owned a .45 ACP Model 25-2 snubby during that time, but it rode less comfortably than a 4" sixgun, and when financial hard times hit, the big-bore snubby went away, along with most of my firearms, except for a very basic few. The old 58 is loose now, not able to pass the function test detailed in the sticky post at the top of this sub-forum. I well have it tightened and tuned, but I finally admitted to myself that my hands are not quite big enough to handle an N-frame well in DA shooting.
When I retire from policin' in the next two to eight years, and am free from PD policy that affects what I carry, 24/7, I may
well carry a single action .45 Colt sixgun, made by Colt or USFA, at least some of the time. I already have a Milt Sparks
Summer Special for the purpose.
A contender for big-bore concealed carry that I do have now is a Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan, which falls within my employer's rules for off-the-clock weapons. With an original factory GP100 grip in place, it fits my hands superbly, and I can reach the trigger easily for DA shooting. It remains to be seen if it will find favor for urban concealed carry, as I have yet to purchase a rig for it. Just because it has a short snout does not make it small, however, so for now, I see the SRH Alaskan as a specialty weapon more so than a daily carry gun.
