My father passed away four days ago. He was seventy-two. Very fast and unexpected. I'm an only child so his collection is now mine. My mother insisted that I take everything home with me. It's been a hectic few days going through all of his firearms and He was a retired Idaho State Trooper. In 1989 Idaho State Police celebrated it's 50th anniversary. Smith & Wesson made 200 Model 686's w/4" barrel. Light engraving with gold inlay, smooth target stocks and his badge number engraved in it. It's in an oak presentation case. Dad never fired that revolver and he was very proud of it. It's very pretty, but there are two other handguns that he actually carried during his twenty-four years as an officer that I will cherish more. The S&W Model 65 and the S&W Model 4586. Those were his real world guns. They were carried by him through Eastern Idaho winters and summers from the Montana border down to the Utah border. I'm keeping them. The commemorative will stay in it's box because that's how my father wanted it. The two worker bees will be making periodical trips to the range because that's what they were meant to do. Miss you dad.
