Too funny. I am surprised that it is a 3rd Gen DS though. Other indicators in the ad would suggest an older gun.

Interesting ad concept, or just something the editors or copy guys made up, but it seems to me that it predates most CCW or CWL permitting especially when carrying a concealed weapon was considered a felony.

Somewhere I have a folder for a defunct ad agency in Farmington CT that a deceased friend worked at, they had Colts account for many years. Right out of “Mad Men”, it was an irreverent hard drinking crew. They made spoof ads about all theirs clients, including Colt. None would be deemed remotely politically correct and all were hysterical. I’ll have to dig those out, she also gave me the proof photos from several of the 1970s catalogs. They really made some funny Colt ads, some of their spoof ads for hospitals, insurance companies and charities were even funnier.
