    The only reason for the CDC to field a gun, is zombie extermination.

    I'll give you a real answer, they field guns in certain circumstances because people will panic if told they have a deadly communicable disease and will be quarantined. The suits they wear are easy to tear and if torn the person may be considered contaminated which means isolation and the same type of death.

    Howdy Berto........:supergrin:

    I've owned this model 60 for close to 20 years. Will that do? You're right that I should practice with it a little more, but haven't shot it very much in the past ten years, or so........

    Unfortunately, I sold the model 36 a few years ago.

    My LGS had an identical CDC marked Smith a couple of weeks ago........

    Are they selling them off, trading them in, etc.?

    They have been eling them off for years. I think I read on another forum recently that they have Smith M&P pistols waiting to be issued. I read it in passing and didn't really pay that much attention to it. There might be more CDCR guns coming.

    I have a 4" heavy barrel model 64 that is a retired Texas Dept of Corrections gun. It was inscribed TDC with a serial number under the ejector rod. Great shooter, perfect bore but was dirty when I bought it at a pawn shop:wavey:
    It is the stainless analog to my heavy barrel model 10!

    That does make sense.
    Now why the hell does the IRS think it needs a bunch of shotguns?

    The Model 64 is one of my favorite guns. One of the few other than a 1911 that I have multiples of.

    My two best are an ex NYPD gun, and a Detroit Police gun. Both 4"hb. There were some DPD guns floating around that were sold as surplus, but were new never issued. My DPD gun being one of them.

    The DPD also has some round butt snubs too. I have only ever seen one though.
