This is one of the best 380's I have found in a while. It is 99%+ and came with the original box, hang tag, price tag, and archives letter. Found this one and several other very nice pieces at the Texas Gun Collector Show in Denton, Texas last weekend. I want to encourage our members to go to these collector shows. I find collector quality items at some shows, but it is hit and miss. The Texas Gun Collector Show and the Colt Show are not very big, but you will find a number of super high quality guns.

Excellent. Worth every thousand you paid for it.

To put $20.50 into perspective, the average annual income in 1930 was $1,368 or $26.30/week. To add credibility to that figure, my dad was 20 years old and earned $25/week as a draftsman...and was ecstatic to have a job. That Colt 1908 would've cost him 4 days pay.

Hey Randy I have a better idea. You go to TGCA and all the other nice shows. I will stay here and screw off playing in the mountains. You come back and sell stuff to me. You do all of the work and I will reap the benefits. I at least like that plan.

Great idea Tom, but I have a better one. Give me your client list and we will skip the middle man.

WOW...just WOW!!! I live in the wrong state for Colt collecting. This isn't the first time I've seen something that nice on this forum coming out of Texas.
