It shoots as nice as it looks

It really makes people laugh when I take it to the trap line.

Nice gun!!! BTW, that flora don't even come close to looking like poison ivy...

"leaves of three... leave it be..."

When it is really "hot" it has blistered leaves with visible oily sheen...

I contacted the historian at the Washington State Patrol who said that these were issued in the 1950's and surpluses in the mid 1990's when the last officers issued the Model 12 retired.

nice

What a neat old gun. It sure doesn't look like it spent 40 years in a cruiser rack though. Some Captain or other admin type at HQ had that gun I'd bet!

The pic with the suitcase was a novel touch!
