.38 Police Special

Recommended Posts

My grandfather on my dad’s side was a Wyandotte County (Kansas City, Kansas) Sheriffs deputy in the mid to late 50’s.

I have had his service revolver since my dad died in 1996. I used to carry the pistol with me in the woods when I was10-11 years old and practice my “quick draw” skills when I would quit “hunting”.

The box from the pistol was used for many  years by my grandfather to store his handcuffs, a Zippo lighter, watch fob, and various other personal items.

I was going through some stuff and found the owners manual and the registration card. I put them all together and thought it was cool that it all survived this 64 years and 3 people later. The gun is in really great condition.  Not sure which one of my boys will get this. Probably the one that shares his name with my dad and my grandfather.

I have his Batton, slap jack, handcuffs and leather belt.

I’m going to put them all in a display case and hang it in my gun room.

Ahh, simpler times.  Compare that statement of liability to what we have to deal with now:

Same gun I carried in the  80’s. Had to put combat grips on it to make it a little more badass even back then.

Really cool blaster you have there.  Great that it is still with it original family.  I have a few S&W revolvers, but they are all newer ones that I shoot in competition.

I have a 686 that I have made some pretty long shots with. It has a great factory trigger.
