    My first Colt, and first handgun purchase, was a Series 70 Government .45 . I sold it to a chap in Honolulu many years ago.

    First Colt I fired was in '71 in boot camp, feel in love there. 11 yrs ago my first Colt was a series 80 Officers .45. Love it. Been beefing it up for a few yrs. Have built up several .45's on Essex frames from slide kits bought long ago from Numrich Arms (now Gun Parts Corp), these I've had for close to 35 yrs. Kits came from Brazil made under Colt with Colt tooling. Also have an Essex 1911 framed .22 for plinking, tons of fun. But I love my Officers, my desired fire arm when traveling, light, compact with a punch. I own lots of other makes/models/calibers... Never will I part with this baby....

    My first Colt was a Government model 1911 XSE .45. Stainless with the checkered brown wood grips. I see this being in the family for years to come!

It was one of the early Scouts that didn't have the pin to secure the barrel to the frame and the barrel kept unscrewing when I shot it. I still have it and a lot more .22 single actions as well.

    My First Colt was exactly like Buckspen's. $63.00 in a Red lined wooden presentation case. Musta been late 60's. Bulged the barrel shooting a second round after a dud. Learned something that day. The front sight was gone when I got home. Fashioned a replacement out of a nickle 5 cent piece, and that was my first gunsmithing repair. One of my Dad's co-workers that used to rabbit hunt with us just had to have it, bulged bbl and all. Never seen him so excited and he paid me $75 for it. We were both happy. The next week, he ran it off on a punch board for $100. Sure was pretty.

    In 1965 I bought a 6 in. Python and it went out of the house with me every morning for 40 some years. I gave it too my son because I wanted too see him shoot it and enjoy it. He appreciates it more because he knows how much I liked it and giving it too him is more special than him inheriting it. Larry

    When I graduated as a gunsmith in 1990, the gunsmith who used me at the weekend offered me a Gold Cup. Not new, not splendid, but I still have it.
