    John & Matt Fugate (members here) have some really nice Colts!

    But I have no idea what use this will be to Buster the Beagle, he has no opposable thumbs to shoot a Colt Woodsman.

No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”

    It happens. Depending who did the engraving he stole it.

    I thought that was reasonable as well. The engraving looks Germanic and may have been done for a GI in Germany in the 1950s. HEY, maybe it was for ELVIS!

    That was my exact thought when I looked at it. That oak leaf motif is common in German engraving. It looks like the person who did it knew what he was doing. Nice gun.
    The reason I carry a .45 is, Colt Don't make a .46
