Recently, I picked up and handled a Colt Single Action Army. It was much smaller and lighter than I ever thought they'd be. This one was .45, 4 5/8ths barrel and, of course, NICKEL! To my hand, it beat the pudding out of the best Python I've ever had. Now, I haven't shot one, yet and if they shoot peach basket groups from a rest at twenty feet, "fa'get aboud id!"So, gents, what can I expect from this little beauty? Anybody ever actually carry one for protection? Seems like it and I could be GOOD friends. I once felt that way about a detective special - until I had to use it. Don't want to depend on it again. Then, the .45 auto was my friend, then the Python. Maybe I just like guns!? BIG guns? I suppose if I could shoot like McGivern, a .22 would do - huh? DFarisheel, my friend, I just can't get next to that Kahr. I'm told a Toyota is twice the car my Cadillac is, too, but, "Ya pays yer money and ya' takes yer choice!"
