Thanks for the eye candy Tim. That 2" model 10 is definately one of a
kind and the Myres is not too shabby either.

A trip to DWFAN fixed that. It does have target trigger and target hammer. It shoots great and is in my ccw rotation. Had the Myres holster in my stash and it's perfect with that gun.

Tim,

Thanks for sharing your story. That has to be one fo the coolest CCW combos around. How often does it find it's way into the mix?

I try to carry it at least once a month. I carry other 2" Model 10s, so lots of holster options. I save the Myres for special occasions.

I thought I'd posted this in the past, but I can't find it, so here goes...and anyway, Photobucket would have disappointed me, and all of you, I'm just sayin'.

Stocks by The Executioner, holster by me.

Default One more from Baton Rouge, and a bit of history with it!

Here is a first year Highway Patrolman. This is a special one for me. It was given to me by my mother's father when I was in the academy. His assertion was that I not carry it until I graduated. There is a great story about how he came to have it (he was a Provost Marshal in the Army at the time) but I'll save it for another day. The Sambar Stag was my addition for the symposium, it still have the numbers matching magnas at home.

Default One more Baton Rouge symposium gun

Ok - this is a Chief's Special from 1957. The hammer was bobbed long before me and the finish shows many miles of use. I added the Tyler grip adapter. The holster and badge were a gift from a fellow LE enthusiast here on the forum (Thanks again Tony!).

I carry this J frame pretty much all the time. It gets cleaned and waxed once every two weeks. It functions beautifully despite the somewhat haggard appearance. The fancy carved holster only comes out for special occasions.
