Thought I would throw up a picture of my Colts . No big dollor guns just good shooters .. What do the rest of you have ? Two of the pistols belong to my daughters . I passed them to them ten years ago . One other missing is a #92xxx I passed to my Son several years back . Good story on it -It was a "dug-up" that my Dad rebuilt in the late forties -early Fifties.I'll post more info on them tonight when I get home from work ....

Impressive. Certainly SAA's there that some of us would like to see close-ups of if you have the time and inclination. And I also would like to see/read more of that buntline/shoulder stock combo.

Ok : Here is the info on the picture. My Dad got me started on Colts years ago . He was a Gun collector and loved his Colts . Dad was a regular customer at the "San Francisco Gun Exchange" Same place Clint Eastwood hung out .Any Way in the picture are three 3rd gen(Two are nickel with consecutive numbers ) I'm hoping to have them ingraved . 5 2nd gen 3 of them are 38 specails. 4 are 1st gen ( two belong to my Daughters -one is in the 24xxx range the other inthe 76xxx range ) the one not in the picture is in the 92xxx range and it was a "Dug Up" from the 1940's that my Dad rebuilt. There is one 1878 DA ( that i'm putting back together)it may cost more that it's worth. One original 51 Navy , one 2nd gen 51 Navy. One 1911a1 and my 22 Scout. The "Buntline with shoulder stock was a 38 specail -But when It got it it had been converted to 44 specail . So I put the buntline barrel on it and picked up a repro shoulder stock ...How does it shoot with the Shoulder stock ???? LIKE CRAP !!!! LOL but it's still fun .....

Very nice collection. To most people, those would be "big dollar" guns. Most of the guys I know think I'm crazy when I tell em what I paid for some of my Colts. But it's just like the old Harley saying " If I have to explain, you just wouldn't understand" !

Someone asked if I was a dealer ..No , just a collector . I wish I had the money to buy some Military colts .. But right now they are out of my reach . One new thing that happened -a year or so ago I was able to meet John Kopic at a local show . A very nice man . And he lives only a few hours away . I write to him every once in awhile with beginers questions . And have had him rebuild seveal hammers for me ....I have only one in the picture that I wont shoot ( the nickel / walnut grip) the rest are for shooting . I feel it's hard to enjoy them if you don't shoot them ...Even the 1st gen guns ....
