I had one issued to me in '74 when I joined the Anchorage Police Dept. 4".

I retired in '94 and they gave me the gun. I've shot the heck out of it, pretty heavy loads. After all these years it still shoots.

I will admit I've gone to my 6 inch Model 27 for bowling pins. The 28 worked OK, but the extra 2 inch sight radius seems to help a bit.

Still for a good old heavy working gun,can't beat a Model 28.

Quoted from OW Wilson, "Police Administration".

The service revolver should be heavy, so it can be used as a club if need be
I think Mr Wilson had the Model 28 in mind when he wrote that, even though now days I don't think pistol whipping bandits is to PC.
