    Here it is covered in pocket fuzz on the last morning of work on the day of retirement from a banking career, having been toted all that last week. Nothing like toting a Bankers Special here in 21st century banking.

    Apparently the building is still there at 609-611 South Olive Los Angeles, California.
    Another great gun and story to go with it. If I get one before I pull the pin on my banking career in about two years, I'll have to remember to do that, too. We got robbed about two years ago by a local idiot meth head. I wasn't in the bank at the time, which he probably knew. My EDC is a Ruger LC9s Pro strapped to my ankle.

    I generally toted a '66 vintage Colt Detective Special in a De Santis pocket holster. We'd gone too casual for me to be able carry a 4-inch K-Frame Smith & Wesson or 1911 as I was wont to do in former times when suits were the prescribed dress. On a whim I just poked the Bankers Special in the holster and toted it along on that last glorious week.

    Here is snub you don't see very often. It is an Aircrewman. Only about 1200 were produced in the early 1950's.
    Because of the frailty of the aluminum cylinder, these light weight pistols were ordered destroyed. It is estimated only around 50 survived. This one is all original, including the markings on the back strap.
