Thanks AZshot. My wife and son and I went up to Ben Avery yesterday. Had a great time. We brought along a 1918 Colt that I've been working on, a Glock 23, a Glock 30SF, a Ruger New Vaquero in .357 and shot them all. Guess which one shot the best.... The best group at 30 feet was...drum roll.....the 1918 Colt military mix-master. A thought provoking, 5 round, 1'' ragged hole in the X ring. Second best on the list was the Glock 23.Good to hear from another in AZ, Maybe we'll run into each other sometime. I don't buy Colts often, but I do shoot those I have! And AZ is great for shooting.
SaintClair.....Thanks for the welcome. My first Colt was a Series 70 MKIV Government in blue way back when. That's when I was a real junior collector. Everyone has to start somewhere. Thanks again.SamColtFan: Welcome to the Forum. It will be great to have a senior collector (28 years) as a junior member. I am sure we will learn some good information from your experiences.
Thanks John. This looks to be a very good group. What model Colt are you using for your competiton shoots?Welcome. There's a few of us from Arizona here. I too shoot at Ben Avery, competing in a pistol silhouette match monthly. Everyone here is extremely helpful. John
