The sheriff’s office said three people were in a car driving along Highway W just west of Elsberry on July 28. Around 9 p.m. the car stopped and the two passengers got out.

Law enforcement said when the driver tried to get out of the car, one of the passengers allegedly stabbed the driver in the back of the neck. Deputies said the driver then grabbed a gun and fired one shot at the passenger who stabbed him.

One shot, one DRT Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes. Impressive without being stabbed in the neck.

        Quick linky to Mason. Got a serious search on for the hard copies/pdf that was printed out a good while back. The computer that had most of the data crashed the hard drive and the disc that it was backed up on is not compatible with anything available now. Modern technology, ain’t it wonderful? Lot to be said for a ink pen and a Blue Horse Notebook.

    I had always believed the press that Patton just carried a 1911 (with Ivory Grips)…guess I need to talk to our historian a little more. I can see him carrying matching colts, on e on each hip, but wonder what he did with the odd sized revolvers? Did GSP carry them on the hip as well (different gun strong side versus non-dominant) or did he tuck them away so people just did not know how well armed he was?

      Story is he carried a Peacemaker and a .357 Magnum (they didn’t give them a model number then, just the name), both with ivory grips because “only pimps used pearl grips”. The N-frame .357 later was called the Model 27. There was a less polished version called the Model 28, and later courtesy of a fella named Bill Jordan they brought out a smaller-framed K-frame .357 which was known as the Model 19, probably the best-selling single .357 in history.
