Collecting his purchase

Brumby, who already had one of the coveted Texas Edition pistols in silver, purchased the pistol during a Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers annual banquet here in January. Having both special Texas Edition, .45-caliber ACP pistols in his gun safe makes Brumby one of the most-envied lawmen in the state.
