I picked up an Official Police, circa 1967, early last year at a gun show. I've always been an S&W person, but for some reason recently got a wild hair about having some Colts.

I've now got three, the OP, a Police Positive Special in .32-20, and a Police Positive in .32 New Colt.

I haven't thought about an Audley holster for years. The MD state police used to use them, and they worked as advertised unless dirt or crud got under the spring in which case the gun stayed in the holster.

The Colt is really a great gun. The fit and finish is superb and its extremely accurate.
