    My Dadís DS

    My dear dad, a retired NYPD Captain, carried this 69 DS for almost 50 years before passing a few months back. I was 10 years old when he got it and watched him strap it on everyday he went out. Now Iím proud to carry it as he did, even in the same holster. The two piece pachs are a bit worn and I since replaced them with a newer pair with the Colt logo. Other than that, it will remain as is.

    Thanks for sharing. I think I might have to retire it so nothing would happen to it. Here's my Dad's issued DS.

    What a super neat story! You should be very proud of the distinguished service the Colt has seen... Al Marin

    Thanks guys. My avatar is of my Cobra but I must say, the added weight of the DS is very comforting and not much more noticeable in a good holster.

    Hereís a pic of my dad a few years back with some other retirees at Rodmanís Neck Police range. One nice thing about the NYPD, they take care of each other, even after you turn in your badge.

    Sorry to hear of your Dad's passing...

    But at the same time glad to hear you continue to
    honor his memory & service by carrying his Colt.

    ďIt's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.Ē - Ten Bears - ďThe Outlaw Josey WalesĒ

    It is a true brotherhood up there.
