I carried, like many, a Colt 1911 .45 in the military, the navy when standing Topside Watch on a sub. Sure we had some practice but not early enough to ever be comfortable with this weapon. Now over 40 years later and a hater of pistols, I inherited a Colt 1903 .32 from an uncle that didn't work. Long story short, I replaced the firing pin and spring and it works great! Since then I got the pistol bug, I bought three new Colts: Mustang Pocketlite 380, New Agent .45 (which I'm trying to sell) and my beloved Colt GCT .45. I joined a gun club here in Idaho and got my CCW licenses for Idaho and Oregon. Now I want to start competition with the IDPA at my local club in Parma, ID. But being disabled, I'll see how I do. That's me.
