    Got a chance today to go shoot the Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless that I got for Father's Day. It runs like a champ. Here is what it did (shaky hands and all) at five yards (yes, that is eight rounds). I did shoot it at 7 and 10 yards with similar results. I ran 50 rounds of ammo through it. Not bad for a 108 year old pistol with very small sights.

    I had a Colt Model 1902 Sporting .38 ACP given to me and after reading about the inherit dangers of having the slide stop failing and the slide coming off of the frame rails straight back into your face while sighting down the sights put me off of ever shooting it.
    I would much prefer what you have. Nice vintage pistol.

    I had the 1908 .380 version of this gun, loved it and now on my regret list.
