No reason, I just felt like taking photos.

For a 42 year old revolver, it looks like its new. Nice gun.

Classy wheelgun.

That's because I bought it NIB 6 mos ago. It has all papers, warranty card, and even the wax paper wrapper!


I shot it three days later, and then that night saw "The 40 Year Old Virgin". True story!

Nice. You need a fedora and a pack of Lucky Strikes in that picture.

I’ve got its big brother, a 4” Police Positive Special. Colt. It looks just like yours except for the longer barrel. I wish Colt still made them.

They are nice small six shot .38 revolvers. They are much easier to conceal than a K framed Smith and have one extra shot than the J frame. Plus their small size makes them easy for women to handle.

Mine, like yours, still looks new. It’s not something I would want to carry just because I want to keep it in as good a shape as possible. After all they aren’t being made anymore and who knows if they ever will be again.

While writing this I went to the gun safe and took it out to look at it. I think it’s begging me to take it out and shoot it some… A box or two of standard pressure .38s won’t hurt it one bit. Guess I need to head to the range on Saturday.

I was considering carrying it. I think a nice soft holster or bellyband might protect it during infrequent excursions.

Unless they come from the Colt Custom Shop, Colt revovlers are gone forever.

I'm glad that I bought my Colt D frames, a 6" Diamondback in 38spl and 22LR way back in 1985. Back then the Diamondback 22LR was the most expensive 22LR I ever bought. The SS Colt Python was the most expensive revovler that I bought, wife wasn't exactly over joyed, but again I can sell for at least what I paid for it.
