My last year as an officer was in 1988. During my 17 years, I always worked for an SO. Always in a rural county and my Sheriff's that i worked for always told me if I could qualify with it, I could carry it. I carried a Security Six in .357 for the first two years and switched to a S&W 629, 4" stainless 44 mag for the duration of my employment. Still have that one and will never turn it loose. I feel very comfortable with it and an additional two speed loaders for a total of 18 rounds of Hornady Personal Protection JHP ammo. If I need moret han that, I think I am in the wrong place!!!
