    Skyking749 had earlier posted this one in the Classified section of the MSGO...

    And now the rest of the story... thanks to Skyking749's diligent efforts in a matter regarding this Model 28-2 Highway Patrolman, we know it has in the past had Birdsong's Black-T finish applied!!!

    Skyking749 related this one was once owned by a law enforcement officer and I will presume it was the man's "official" carried sidearm.

    That gun was the one that got away for me. I regret not jumping on it.

    I regret not having the funds, but I'm glad my good friend Cliff got it. At least I'll get to shoot it some day. :lol1:

    My apology is sincerely offered CajunBP... and if it helps, I feel the same way about a couple of other S&W revolvers here that have recently slipped away from the grasp of my paws... i.e. - didn't jump on it fast enough, as you said. I have a long history of this happening... :(

    I believe I called that one on the black-T.

    XD357... I believe you did say the finish looked like Birdsong's Black-T. You were "spot on"!

    (the original thread has disappeared... was it deleted?)

    Thanks, Xd357... it did. Worse, I looked there previously and didn't see it. If it had been a snake it would have bit me.
