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!
my first colts were a series 70 and a python, dad started me off right.
buzzards gotta eat,same as worm.
This is my very first Colt!
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.
