Greetings and salutations: I am a small collector from St Louis, MO. I am going to "transition" to the civilian life after 24 1/2 years military service in the next year, so collecting will be on hold for awhile. I have so far managed to save my pennies and obtain the following: Colt 2nd Model Detective Special circa 1969, Blue/CC Colt SAA .45 Colt recent third generation with the return to cylinder bushing, 4 3/4" bbl, Colt Officer's Model Special, .22 lr, 1951-vintage, and a 1991A1 stainless ORM I bought a few years back. I used to work as a professional gunsmith, and graduated from the Colorado School of Trades back in '83, so I guess I have a good background in knowing a little bit. Always interesting info on this website.
