Thanks, Rick!

I’ve been thinking about giving you a call just to be sure that you were still kickin’; glad to see your post and know that you’re OK!

What do you think about these two old things:

Welcome back. How can anyone not be a Smith Revolver fan? That’s unthinkable!

If you saw and got to shoot his Pythons carried when he was active FHP, you'd understand. He brought his rig to one of brownie's courses at Volusia and that thing is absolutely beautiful, as is the holster he keeps it in! 🤠

I have a nickel Detective Special just like the one in the top photo, which I inherited from Mom and will never part with, even though I shoot it rarely. 🤠

That one’s actually a Cobra (alloy framed DS) made in 1968; the year before I graduated high school.

The other is an Official Police; and I believe the lanyard loop shows it was made a good bit earlier than the Cobra.

Gotcha and my mistake. They look so similar.

Oh I understand, I’m being sarcastic. I’ve seen said Colt, it’s purdy.

Greg:

You really ought to shoot that DS. You’d probably be surprised with what a smooth DA trigger pull it has, and how good it’ll shoot. The SA trigger’s nice too; but you know you don’t want to waste time with thumbing a hammer back. ;)

I know you're right. Just never seem to remember to bring it with me. However, I'm considering making it a BUG and then it would be with me a lot more. 🤠
