Love of the Combat Revolver

Many know I am a dedicated fan of the Glock 19 and also carry a Kel Tec P3AT.  But few know that I am a long time fan of the Combat Revolver.  My personal definition of Combat Revolver is a revolver with a barrel of four inches or less with fixed or channel sights.  Again, this is only my personal definition.

On the left is my Ruger Speed Six 357 Mag, SS, 2 3/4 inch barrel.   This beauty has some history.  It was issued to the Delaware State Police in 1976 and has "Made in the 200th Year of our American Liberty" engraved on the frame.  Either the trooper it was issued to shot it a lot or had an action job done because it is like butter.  One of the few pretty target pictures you will ever see me post, these six rounds were fired off hand, double action, at about 15 yards.  The rounds were some crappy 38 reloads.  As you can see it is keeper.

The other gun in a Taurus Model 85 Ultralite.  I carried this as my back up gun when I was a police.  It was carried under my left armpit in a bully band over my vest. Right after I got it I had a local smith bob the hammer. After retiring I had it Duracoated Battleship gray.

If you would like to have a picture of your favorite combat revolver (your definition or mine) simply e-mail it to me or post it on our Facebook page.
