This is a wonderful thread. The theme of my collection is military and police service and from here on I plan to focus pretty exclusively on police revolvers and semiautomatics.

16 Pistols, 5 Rifles, 1 Shotgun, no time to shoot them

I've got an S&W 4506-1 that I'm pretty sure came out of the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Police Department, but I'm not sure how to confirm that...

I have a SW model 59 9mm pistol which was bought by a St Louis City cop for off-duty carry in 1971. This was the first year of production. My father-in-law acquired it from the cop in 1973 because he needed money for a home improvement project.

The main spring is incredibly stiff by today's standards. It feeds Remington golden sabers 124 grain just fine.

I'll play. A model 64 from Detroit, A model 58 from San Antonio, and a 4506 from Espanola. I have a 6906 and a 4006 that are out of police turn ins, but I don't know the particulars.
