Medals

Once here on this forum, we discussed legal cases of when I was a cop. I said I only lost one or two cases, IIRC. Someone who disbelieved this said with such a record, I should have received a medal.

Well, I did, after thinking about it. The one on top was given to me in 1987 when I retired from Athens PD. The one on bottom I got when I retired from OCSO.

    Is the top a model 13 Nickel or 65 SS?

    It's a SS Model 65. I've got a Model 19 nickel, though, 3". I don't shoot the P 7 much, but it's a very accurate pistol. I had a time finding a holster for it.

    Nice hardware. Never pictured you packin a P7.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I don't pack either one except every once in a while. I was issued the Model 65 but didn't shoot it much. It's almost certainly got less than 500 rounds through it, and all .38 Specials. I didn't carry it on duty, was toting a 1911.

    The P 7 was a W German cop trade in, got the box with it and the extra magazine. The first round I ever put through it was for qualification for my former cop license, shot a 92 with it. The thing has a European mag release and I had a bit of a problem adjusting to that and to squeezing it after the reload.

    A wonderfully accurate pistol. I'll never sell either one as they were gifts and I'm emotionally attached.
