    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.

    An 1878 Colt Single Action Army in .45 Colt. All numbers matching including gate/frame blend numbers. Unfortunately we don't know the story behind it (my grandpa passed in 2000 and I was the first in the family to really be interested in firearms, but being six I wasn't in any position to ask about it). And his Remington 34, by the production date we reckon it was his 13th birthday present, although we have no way of proving it. It shoots wonderfully with .22 shorts, I intend to take it squirrel hunting this year.

    My father's hunting rifle - a sporterized 03-A3

    My grandfather's single shot Stevens - I think it is a .25 something or other. Not shootable.
