Like most hybrids this thread really has nowhere else to go except the Lounge. I've been a fan of Skeeter Skelton for many years. I am pleased to say that I own many gun publications from the sixties with articles by him in them. My father was an Idaho State Trooper (he passed away in 2016) and I am also in law enforcement. I inherited dad's guns and have more than a few of my own. Somehow the idea of showing dad's Colt Combat Commander next to the sixties era Colt Detective Special (wearing the style of Grips that Skeeter preferred for the DS) seemed appropriate for this forum. Dad purchased the Commander in 1976 from another Trooper and he had the hard chrome finish applied in 78/79. It was one of the first handguns I learned to shoot when I was a kid. As a combo it would probably be more practical for the DS to be a Cobra or Agent, but I own the DS so that's what goes into the photo.
