Wow, so it has passed from your great grandmother's then passed to another family member and then to you?Yes, not the original owner though. It was my great grand-mothers, she carried it when she was Sheriff. Her husband died in 54' and she finished out his term and then was elected to a term for sheriff and this is the gun she carried.
SUPER cool. Leathergoods are easy to modify, It could probably be made to fit you at very little cost. Either extending or shortening straps. On the other hand, you might want to keep it original for sentimental reasons.I agree, I will be sure to enjoy it. I certainly think she had good taste, I even have the shoulder holster she wore too, even if it doesn't fit me haha.
