    I'm curious about how Rosie O'Donnell ended up on a police qualification target!

    I had a 28 at one time. Great pistol, but I traded it for a Model 25. I always struggled with groups using full power 357 loads, but I expect that was more just those fire-breathing 125 grain loads more than the gun itself. When I put some of my target full wadcutter 38s in it, it was an amazingly accurate gun. Thanks.

    The model 28 was a work horse of a gun for decades. The 27 being the highly polished blued and more collectible version. HR, is your's a -2 model era gun? I used to collect them and 27's at one time.

    Love the 28. Mine is also a 6 inch and made in 1965. Sweet shooter and the trigger, both in DA and SA, is superb. It is in the family gun category so it will go to my son but it even if it wasn't I would never sell it.

    I really need to work up a 357 target/plinking load one day.

    I am guessing that is her 8th grade grad picture then?

    No way I could consistently squirrel that big long 28 out of a 4 o'clock waist level holster. I'd need the holster somewhere around 10 or 11 o'clock at a 45 deg angle for "proper" gunslinging.

    Thanks @hrfunk for another interesting video. Congratulations on qualifying, again! I'm enjoying your 50 state qualification journey, including the piano accompaniment from your daughter.

    Those 6" revolvers are hard to clear leather, particularly from a high ride holster.

    I'm enjoying the heck out of the retro cop guns like the Browning Hi-Power, the Smith 39 and now the Highway Patrolman.

    For you LE veterans out there, if a compact version of a service weapon is approved for off-duty or plain-clothes carry, must you qualify with that weapon as well? I'm just pondering hrfunk's fine series here and as he's included retro guns, it might add another dimension to include other than full-size models. I wouldn't suggest a J-frame, but maybe a 2" K-frame like a DAO M64, or a Kahr K9 formerly approved by NYPD.

    As an aside, just looking into NYPD's service pistol requirements I note a 12-pound trigger pull requirement in a blog commenting on the Springfield XD-S being approved for backup or plain clothes use. Coincidentally, today I happened to measure the trigger on a favorite wheelgun, a 4-inch S&W 64-3 that lives here. DA pull was a heavy 9.5 pounds, but it's smooth with no "stacking." I can't imagine an automatic with a 12-pound trigger.

    Yes. Mine is a 1966 vintage 28-2.

    Ha, ha! It was a bit of a challenge to get it out of that holster in the allotted time!
