    New, N. Texas, in a revolver addiction cycle

    Hi, I'm new from the Fort Worth area and I've entered what I tell my friends is my "revolver stage" of gun appreciation. I own Dan Wessons, S&W, Ruger, Rossi, and, yes, I'm not ashamed to say it, even 1 Taurus. I want to get at least one or two Colts and I don't have a clue as to how to assign value & make a buying decision given the snake gun craze, so I'm here for as much help as I can get.

    Oh, BTW, been married 35 years, 5 children, 3 grandchildren, & I drive a Ford F150 Lariat.

    Welcome to the forum. No hate here for owning a Taurus or two. Most people say they're a poor man's S&W clone. The truth is, the internals couldn't be more different. Maybe a poor man's Rossi clone...

    Welcome! You mention snake guns. Is that what you have your heart set on? There are lots of quality Colt double actions manufactured prior to 1945 ("prewar" double actions) and after ("postwar") that sell for a fraction of the price of most snake guns.

    Prewar guns include the Police Positive, Police Positive Special, Officers Model, Army Special, Official Police, and New Service, just to name a few. Postwar guns include the Officers Model Special, Officers Model Match, Model 357, and Trooper. And there are the "snub noses" such as the Detective Special and Cobra. Lots of great guns.

    Welcome to the forum from NY. You’ve certainly come to the right place to learn about Colt revolvers.

    Welcome!

    Since you are local, you need to get plugged in to the annual Colt Collectors Convention, which will be held in Frisco this year, https://coltcollectors.com/convention/ , and the Fall TGCA (Texas Gun Collectors Association) Show which will be held in Denton, https://tgca.org/fall.html . What you see at both these shows will make your head spin (read: lots of various types of Colt revolvers)!
