About a year and a half ago (I don't know how to link to prior threads, "A Fitz special and the greatest generation") a wonderful old gentleman at my sportsman's club gave me a Fitz special New Service .45. Well, my friend continues to defy the grim reaper and I met up with him the other night and he gave me a cherry 1931 Police Positive in .38 special. Ivory grips, bobbed hammer, and shortened barrel. The gun was his fathers, and my friend is in his 80's. What an absolute gem of a gun; and my friend--well, I can't type enough to tell you what an outstanding person he is; he's a prince of a man it goes without saying.

He made that holster himself in the 1950's.

The crown on the barrel is factory quality.

I don't know when the last time it was fired was, but it will get shot this weekend. You are truly blessed when your collection of friends is even better than your collection of Colts!

What an absolute gem. Beautiful. You're so right about friends too. Our collecting has blessed me with many new friends here on the forum, some close enough that visit when they can. Every one a gentleman that I'm proud to call friend. Enjoy your new Colt.
