The little buggers had the "1862 Police" on sale and had one in the store last week. Doggone them, anyway. It's getting to be so that every time I go there, my credit card just shoots right out of my wallet.

Merry Christmas to me, whoo hoo, guess I know what Santa will put in my sock. Well, with me being Santa, it's only fair.

Re: '62 Piettia Police

I have one and frankilly it's my favorite belt pistol!
Not the most accurate, it throws a decent 4" 20 yard group but good enough for what it is intended for.
Powerwise, the revolver is a full sized .36 Navy and standard 20-22 gr Powder charges can be loaded.
It has a 6 shot cylinder.
I have shot mine for accuracy using real BP, Pyrodex, Crisco ,or wads and get the same groups I mentioned. The little revolver holsters well and draws smoothly due to the short BBL It even clears a Hip-high Holster without undue bending of the arm! I carry mine in a shortened Cabelas Western Holoster on the right, strong side caarry is effortless.
I haven't yet fired it with Conicals but standard Horniday swaged balls load and fire well.
All in all, a real deal and if you can find one on sale, a heck of aq deal!
