The Baltimore police twitter feed likes to post all the various guns/drugs they catch. Lots of good examples of 1970s tech with random mismatched ammo and accompanying crack cocaine load-out.

I love the phrasing of "Firearm Intended to Settle Dispute" in this one. What confuses me is that those are clearly two different guns.

It's an Uberti clone of the 1858 Remington.



It's almost certainly busted, with no trigger and probably more missing parts, but what are the odds your average Chicago Herbie Dilla is gonna know how to properly load a cap-and-ball revolver anyway?

Dang, I forgot Astra even made revolvers. At any rate, it's sure not a Python.

Edit: Are you sure? I can't find any picture of a long-barreled Astra with a full underlug like that, but it's a dead-ringer for a Taurus 689. Those sure look like Taurus grips, too.

is it street law that if you're gonna use a revolver to do crimes you have to mark it by replacing the grips with lovely electrical tape

or do the cops do that after confiscation to make it look more gangster-ey and less like it came from grandpa's nightstand, I'd sort of believe that one

It's a disposable glove for your gun, just take the tape off and your prints are gone.
