I have a few Colt now and I think this board will helpful. I started out with military rilfes and then drifted into a few military pistols. Then I drifted into older SW N frame 44spl and lately older Colts seem attractive. I tend to look for 90% shooter types since they are "pre-stressed" and I don't have to worry about losing value thru use. I can answer some questions about FN49 rifles and Savage 32cal pistols since I have quite a few of them.
