Highway Patrolman Range Report
I found a cherry Model 28-2 for a very reasonable price in a pawn shop. I own a mint Model 27-2, that shoots like a dream, but like those police departments, I just can't see banging a gun that pretty around. I bought the Model 28-2 without hesitation. This afternoon I took it out for a brief shooting.
I did not have any .357 magnum ammo, so I shot 130 grain .38 special Winchester White Box. The gun grouped consistently. The sights were a little off, but nothing that can not be adjusted out later. I could not really wring it out today due to other committments; I just stopped by my local indoor range to run a box of ammo through it. I was extremely pleased. The serial number of this gun is N77XX, which places it at 1969. For 36 years somebody somewhere has been missing out with this gun. It's a keeper!
