Not sure if I should shoot it Andy, it's quite a valuable collectable and a pleasure to own and learn about the entire Colt history and ethos which is a fascinating learning experience on the American west of which I'm a big fan so no I haven't shot it and don't think I will, I'd rather a more recent less rarer one as a shooter.

I do know of the very restricted gunlaws in Australia. How do you manage to own this very nice Colt SAA?? are you a member of a collector association? Do you have a colector permitt?

I do live in the Netherlands. I do have a collector permitt that tells that I can own the revolver but not shoot it. (aldo I am a sportshooter to and have a sportshootingpermitt to)

Greetings from a member with a double nationality. Dutch and Australian.

Do not shoot this nice Colt. It is a on the border of Nitro and Blackpowder. I think when you shoot nitro with it you blow this revolver up. Treassure it.

Sorry for late reply Thuer,

Yes we have to have licenses to own any type of gun whether it's a BB gun or not, I actually went through all the hoops and whistles to pursue my extensive antique and vintage Toy Cap Gun collecting which here they are deemed replicas and need to be licensed! crazy but true, the law claims that any type of imitation can be used in a hold up, so as I had to acquire a special Collectors license for the toy guns, so I might as well start collecting real guns as they require the same permits.

Funny some of the toy guns from the 1940's mint and non cap fired are far more valuable that the real ones, true! but now the Colt bug has bitten me and this is were I'm going as a lot of Colt's made it down under during our colonial days, there's even a book written which I've just ordered 'Colts Down Under' referred to me by another Aussie forum member Tony56.
