    Last Piece of My Puzzle Acquired......

    I am a retired LEO and have been putting together a small collection of guns I consider to be from the glory days of police work. I have had three for a while and have had a hard time finding the fourth and last one, at least one in nice condition. Well today at a Knoxville gun show, I found what I have been looking for. A four inch, S&W Highway Patrolman.





    Here is my little collection of some of the best cop guns ever. Colt Trooper, Colt Lawman, S&W Military and Police, and lastly, the S&W Highway Patrolman.

    Are these guns that represent what you carried in your LE career or just iconic cop guns? If quintessential cop guns you're definitely missing the Colt Official Police. Sam Brown rig and traditional leather gear completes the gun & leather combination. Btw congratulations on your retirement and many more happy, healthy years

    They are just classic cop guns that I alway admired and wished I had had when I was a lad. The duty guns of my career were the S&W Model 15 Combat Masterpiece, which I bought when we transitioned to the Beretta 92F. Then we moved on to the Beretta 92D in .40 S&W. Then came the Sig 229 DAK, and finally the new S&W M&P 9mm.

    Colt snubbies rule.
    Life's too short to carry an ugly firearm.

    Avon Park Police Dept, Florida??
    Lot's of known nickel N frames in Florida LEO holsters in the day. As of 2016, Avon Park had a 20 man Police Dept. May be worth a phone call or email....

    I googled APPD and found several good candidates including Aransas Pass Police Dept. in Texas. The APPD looks like a Factory Mark as it is under the nickel.

    Oh yeah, those S&W Highway Patrolman revolvers are a fine piece of craftsmanship! I like em better than the M-27's.

    Smith & Wesson 28's have been a huge dark horse. They have appreciated in
    value big time over the last 5 or 6 years. Congrats on a really nice one.
