    My dept. didn't issue .41 mags, but when I joined back in '83, I carried one. We could carry anything we could qualify with. Mine was a Smith 657 4" which I have to this day.

    Neither did my department issue the Model 58, but I carried one during the early '70's with the Erie Lackawanna Railroad Police (now defunct). Back then we could carry what we liked as long as we qualified with it.

    IIRC, when I was a kid, San Francisco P.D. issued the .41 Magnum.

    I think the .41 Magnum is a very overlooked, but great round. For handloaders there is a lot of undeveloped potential there.

    I may be wrong, but I think the New Mexico State Police were issued >41's at on time.

    It is a fine cartridge, especially if you reload.

    My old dept. still lets officers carry whatever they can qualify with. I carried a 6" mdl. 57 in the mid 80's, for awhile.

    I bought one of the San Antonio (TX) PD M58 sixguns after SAPD sold them off. I used it off and on, mostly on, as a duty and CC sixgun during the later half of the 1980's.

    SAPD never bought enough M58s for all of their officers. IIRC, the S&W Model 10 was the other issued sixgun during that time.

    While I don't know the model it is reported that before he started carrying a 357 Magnum, Buford Pusser carried a 41 Magnum. He switched to the 357 Magnum after he and his wife were ambushed.
