I carried a Colt Official Police in 1975-76 then a S&W model 64 into the 80s. Most departments in RI carried 4" guns with a few exceptions, including the State Police which carried 6" model 66s in cross draw holsters with a lanyard. I think that Patrol in vehicles prompted the move to shorter barrel revolvers.
