    Post A Righteous Revolver

    I recently became reacquainted with an old friend,a Colt Official Police revolver. A .38 special with four inch barrel, in blued steel with checkered walnut stocks. Having previously owned one of identical features,and regretfully let it slip away. A very shootable revolver,due to its wieght of 32 ounces and its smooth crisp action.It will handle any .38 special load without concern.Too bad they don't make 'em like this anymore.

    Yeah...I'm a Smith man myself...HOWEVER...I think the Colt Official Police .38 is THE BEST Colt revolver there is!

    Yes...even better than the "Renown" Python.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Man-o-man do I agree with you. You're lucky, you own one...I don't.

    I love the S7W M10 too but find one with the standard barrel...

    Why did you have to beat the Model 60?
