    S&W Model 64 Heavy barrel 38spl DAO Revolver 4 in.

    Digging that revolver. Decent price too. Some MIM parts tho' But that era of Smith&Wesson made pretty good barrel and chamber tolerances.

    What's for breakfast?

    Some mornings it is a toasted bagel, or an english muffin with peanut butter and honey, or then again a bowl of granola cereal and milk. Sometimes just a handful or two of raw unsalted almonds washed down with bottled water. But today was an 8-AM sourdough bread and deli black forest ham and baby swiss cheese full on stacked sandwich. I wasn't hungry again until I got home in the afternoon!

    3pm and druch as funk.....

    I've done some pretty good drinking standing at the charcoal grill cooking some red meat and swilling beer at 7:00 in the morning. Course, that was when I worked 6P-6A shifts, so it was just getting off work for me at seven AM.

    Police S.O. Valuable Information Learned

    This is going quite well....
  8. It got some looks. Lots of times it sparked a pleasant conversation. Most peeps, even gun peeps, never saw full moon clip .357 Magnum ammo in the clips. I carried no fewer rounds than my 1911 CRG. I even had members of grand juries ask me about carrying a revolver in court chambers and they loved the idea. This new Sheriff is the real deal. I am so excited to have him take over. Having him change the policy for duty carry matters not in the least. I'm good with it.
  9. In court and depositions and grand juries. It was in a Level One Blade Tech kydex paddle.
  10. If there was a decent level two or level three holster for my 627 I would tote it on duty with full moon clips in mace carriers, because it would be effective and very cool. Well, until now.
  11. Clear Skies and I might set my alarm to see it at midnight. I usually go to sleep early. Right now I could read a newspaper by the moonlight alone.

    Help with Choosing a Semi Auto .308

    Here is a pic of my work gun M1A with the Aimpoint Micro T-1 The optic sits nice and low it does. Great rifle.
  13. Damn. My dept issues a Gen4 G17 but previously let me qual with any other approved handgun and carry what I want. I always qual'd with the issued G17, and my CRG, and even a S&W PC 627 8-shot .357. The new Sheriff is going to be fantastic. But one rule is that we must carry the issued weapon. I'm cool with that because I really like a 9mm GLOCK. But is just won't be the same.

    Help with Choosing a Semi Auto .308

    Okay. Full disclosure. I wanted an M1A for thirty-five years, and I finally was able to own one. A wood stocked Springfield Scout Squad (couldn't afford a Fulton Armory or LRB M14). I wouldn't give it up for anything. Reliable, maintenance free (almost), 1.5~2-MOA with irons and hand loaded ammo. And a very cool factor at the range that always draws a crowd. I had it in my patrol vehicle trunk for a while and it felt awesome to know it was there. As much as a fanboy that I should be for that rifle I am going to recommend for you something different. A S&W M&P AR10 http://www.smith-wesson.com/firearms/mp-10-optic-ready But you will still have to deal with an optic or irons on top of what it would cost you.
