Lefty made a good point about the .45 auto being popular among BNDD agents. I recall a Colt holster catalog of the 1960's mentioning that in the copy for one .45 auto holster.

In a junior high school class visit to the FBI field office here, I recall a M-27 or pre-27 with five-inch bbl. and a VERY smooth action among the .38's. The only handgun I owned then was a Webley MK. VI and I was impressed by the slickness of that .357's honed (?) action.

A few years later, in high school, a Special Agent addressed us on Career Day. He carried a Bodyguard. Don't recall if it was steel or Airweight framed. I suspect that he wanted a small, handy gun for what he thought would be a light duty day.
