    Twenty-one years of age and a Colt Trooper Mk III, 4 inch. I later traded it on a 4" Python. It was about 1975 and the Python was priced at $254. According to the inflation calculator: 254 in 1975 had the same purchasing power as $1,206 in 2018. And so goes the story.

    Your first Colt came from a gun store where I spent a lot of 'looking & wishing time in the 1960 - 1970 era. My wife bought my 1974 Christmas present at the Fort Knox gun store, a S&W .22/.32 Kit gun, that I still have. We may have 'rubed elbows' there.

    First Colt was a Cobra, bought back around 1970 in a hardware store. Has ridden with me in my truck since then and logged tens of thousands miles. Been in more truck stops and motels than I can remember. Besides my wife, that has been my one constant my entire adult life. Nice knowing you have a couple of things You can always depend on.

    2 years ago, I bought my first Colt which was also my first revolver. I had never really given much thought to revolvers but have always appreciated the look and feel. I went into my favorite LGS and told them I was in the market for a revolver. They showed me a couple of pistols that didn’t look too exciting. When they saw that my interest was starting to fade, they brought out a 1969 Python that had very little use appeared almost new to me. When they told me the price, I thought they were nuts. A week later I came back in and bought it. Now, I find myself always looking for the next, Python, SAA, etc......darn that sales guy showing me the Colt Python. Now, I’m hooked on revolvers too!

    When my dad passed in 2009, he left me his .45 Colt M1911 A1 and the .22 conversion kit. It was this firearm that sparked my interest in collecting military weapons.

    I've only sold two of the guns I've ever owned and I regret getting rid of both. Hence, I don't sell them once I get them.

    I know where the Diamondback is and the owner's kids are in high school. If I time it right, I may be able to get it back when the kids (read, Dad) need tuition and book money.

    My first handgun was a Colt 1851 Navy replica that I bought when I was 12 using paper route money. Got a 1911 (but it was a Remington Rand) at 14 using paper route and odd job money. My first real Colt was a 6" blued Python I bought at 18 with my enlistment bonus right after Airborne School.
