Once again I come to this page while thinking of my uncle DAN.. Have been here many of times with good memories of him and his family, wondering if all are ok and what there lives have been like, Really I'm on the east coast and our family doesn't stay in touch with others on the west coast and vise versa. Why who knows. But what I would enjoy more than anything in the world is to find/recover my uncles service revolver, from what I hear his partner was given this revolver, whats so special about it besides being my uncles is his dad also had the exact same model I was told, his dad bought two of them that day one for himself and one for his son Dan. I am a collector of handguns and would cherish owning his gun. I have contacted the santa anna police dept and with great respect the helped me search for his partners name, but to know avail, they say records for that kind of stuff weren't kept. They even posted a ad in the police depts. monthly newspaper and got no response. I have been searching for this over twenty years and help would be greatly appreciated. I'm legit and honest when I say I'm his uncle. Aunt J, or anyone else who may know or has this you have any clue on his service revolver where about contact me thru site. Aunt J my mon said you read my previous post. but that was years ago, she also stated, that you don't come here too often as it still hurts, totally understand. In time we will all be together again. Hey and thanks for the whipped cream pie and that delious lasagna.
