Well now that the thread is back I might as well post my favorite Highway Patrolman - a 5 screw engraved and two-toned four incher with ivory grips I picked up at a show 3-4 years ago. The seller said his dad picked it up at an auction sometime in the 80`s but it didn`t come with a story so we don`t know who engraved it or who had the work done but from the wear and patina it looks like whoever had it originally got some use out of it before it got passed on.

I wish I could include a picture of my first Highway Patrolman and my first N frame .357 magnum- a well worn 4" model 28-2 I bought for a flat $100 from a local police lieutenant I knew when I was about 15. That model 28 taught me that I preferred the N frame to the K for shooting and for a belt gun and that the 8 3/8" barrel on my other N frame at the time, a nickel 29-3 was really just too long even if it looked cool. Sadly I let that first model 28 go 6-7 years later after I finally got my first model 27. These days I have plenty of N frame shooters and don`t NEED another 28-2 with only 40% or so of the blue finish left, but if I ever stumble across that particular one again at a local show I'll probably buy it back even if they want too much for it...

That is a definite winner! And I LOVE the Berns-Martin holster rig too. I had my eye on a similar rig at the beginning of the year, but unfortunately, never pulled the trigger. It makes for a great interesting pairing for your engraved Highway Patrolman.

Someone has been releasing NYSP model 28-2 revolvers in amazing condition recently. I purchased one on GunBroker a couple of years ago in like unused condition.

In 1983 I was a deputy sheriff in Laramie County, Wyoming. We got a new sheriff who banned semiauto pistols and mandated 38 revolvers. At the time I had a FFL and purchased around 24 revolvers for myself and other deputies from John Jovino in New York. Unfortunately I sold my Model 28 in 1984 when I went to the Wyoming Highway Patrol.

The one I purchased a couple of years ago brought one home.

I've posted this one before. SN S3069xx. Not sure of the year but looks like 1968. I shoot it occasionally. Just thought I would drop it into this thread because it's a cool idea to have a bunch of them in one place.



No, I don't eat spam....anymore.
