Greetings, Colt Forum Members! Former member here, that drifted away from this forum for the last couple of years. I went by "Official Police" as my password. I retired in July 2016 as a deputy sheriff, making a total of 45-years service, with my PD job thrown in for good measure. I was Chief of Police in a small Georgia town during the 80's and into the early 90's, before retiring (changing jobs) and working as a supervisor of a small group of deputies at an infamous place referred to as "Fort Apache", a large building that houses the Welfare Office, Health Department, and 5-Mental Health clinics. It was get-to-go at the Fort, as I just thought I had a cushy job before retiring for good. I humbly apologize for my extended absence from this great forum. For most of the duration of this career, I carried three different model Colts. The Official Police, the Metropolitan, and the Police Positive Special. All .38's, and all cop six-guns! I weathered the great change-over in 1992 to the semi-automatic pistol. I was graciously grand-fathered in with my Colt by leadership, a real privilege, when I reflect back on it. I just had to qualify yearly for the State of Georgia mandated course-of-fire. Please be so kind as to excuse this too long of a introduction of myself. I thought some of the recent year members might find that there was a cop still packing a revolver, a Colt Revolver (OP) in 2016. I have not completely quit, as I continue to serve as a Reserve Deputy, pulling security in the courtrooms of Columbus. Georgia. That old "Official Police" that I first carried in 1971 as a rookie is "still" residing in my duty holster today. I will post pics asap, if interest indicated. Thanks for your patience!
