    I'm pretty old, but like Hank Jr. said years ago in his song "Young Country", I don't draw no lines. I like them all, old, modern, expensive, cheap. I just like guns.

    I wish Colt would polish the slides AFTER the rollmark's. They would look much better and more original without the raised halos around the lettering.

    Colt's Dick Special, Cobras and Agents are still the finest snubbies made by anyone. The competition, even today, still holds only five rounds. For their size, quality and capabilities nothing else...

    Stock design makes a big difference in how the recoil is applied. I once had a Colt Light Rifle and a Savage 110, both .30-06. Shooting ammunition from the same box the Light Rifle was certainly...

    Nobody has mentioned the Webley revolvers which saw vastly more action that any other revolver. Although looking at long arms the development of the Minie cartridge in rifled muskets changed warfare.

    Reviews on the retro Colt XM177 seem to be very good. About the only complaint I've heard is the pricing and difficulty in finding one. And in late news "Beto" now says he'd be up to banning ALL...

    For Colt to not have a .22 in the line is beyond comprehension (I'm not talking about licensed products made by others). That's how you get lifetime customers...give them a .22 caliber introduction...

    Ruger is doing as companies in many industries have done...they see a market that they haven't served and want to participate. I'm thinking that Ruger is wanting to bring in new, entry-grade...

    All of my old colts have historical value because they all have notches on the handle. We all know what that means, and certainly nobody put them there many years after the fact

    Where are you getting your information or are you just trolling to get a rise out of people? If you're going to make such accusations give a source where it came from.

    The definitive answer is on the guns themselves, .45 Colt, no more-no less.
