I love the barrel length on that one.
Loading lever's probably useless, though.....
Nice, tidy little package, Congrats!

Fingers:  So, now that you have your very own 4 1/2 inch, what do you think?  Are you gonna shoot it?  Nice that you got the box as well.

Don't have it in hand yet.  With mailing funds and pistol; I figure it'll be next week sometime before it gets here.

I do plan on shooting it.  The two 5 1/2 inchers I've bought recently will get tried out this weekend & I have holsters being made for them.  The 4 1/2 inch Police will fit nicely in the holsters too.

Who's doing your leatherwork, Fingers?

A guy in Oklahoma.  T Star Leather.  He was at Prince of Pistoleer & KS State Championship match last month.  Had some nice looking stuff, so I decided to try him out.  He used to live in Maryland; but there wasn't enough east coast SASS business to keep him employed.
