    Another very early Detective Special. Note smooth trigger, no marking on right side of barrel.

    An early New York State Police gun. Note the wear on the trigger guard from an Audley locking style holster popular in that era.

    Boy, those are a lot of fine examples! Here's my humble old entry, with pre-war features. Outboard grip is worn nearly smooth. It gets a lot of carry.

    That's what that wear is...
    I used to have a '51 DS that had similar wear markings. Must have been from the same thing.
    I'm surprised that the Audley holsters wore them that much. The little clip that clips into the triggerguard is made of brass isn't it?

    An early post-war "transitional" gun in 32NP. Note the pre-war frame and checkered hammer. Not the prettiest gun but one of my favorites.
