    Nice looking Colt you have there Mike...Oh and those guys who worked on your BP pistol , look like they might know a thing or two...:D
    All Kidding aside...I am both glad and honored to have been trusted enough to have worked on your pistol.

    I live in a tiny house so other then the nylon 66 they're at my parents, I'll have to get some pics next time I'm out there.

    Edit: let's try that again.

    As a seller, that would indicate to me that the gun shop just wanted to French me!

    This is one beautiful gun! Obviously carried for a while, however it creates less internal conflict if I want to carry it eventually!

    My Winchester Model 1906 Expert in half nickle .22 made in 1919. My grandfather bought it sometime before1935. He gave it to my dad in 1935 for his 12th birthday, then my dad gave it to me on my 12th birthday in in 1963. It is 99 years old now. Also have a 1955 J C Higgins 16 gauge single shot break open shotgun that my dad won in 1955. It is 63 years old.

    Actually No.

    Many years of shaking the tree's. Talking to friends of friends. And then there is the large family I'm in. They direct everybody with a gun for sale to me. ;)

    That’s pretty much your family right there tho, albeit your extended family.
