Anyone notice he was wearing a revolver in a cross draw holster ?

In my 32 years in patrol cars the best was the 1973 Plymouth grand Fury 440, 4 barrel. Yup David, saw the cross draw, I had a revolver in a Clamshell on a Buscallero gun belt.

Cool idea to bring back an old school unit but a cross draw revolver....Really? Just dangerous

Drove one of those on the first law enforcement job I had as a small town city marshall in Colorado!

Great car if it has a 381 it will out run some of the newer cars.
