Ahhhh...Looks like a pack of old friends.:cool:

Here's a 1925 commercial Colt that I've been carryin' of late. Slide and frame were reblued, but inside, it's almost new. Probably been less than a thousand rounds through it...and it's got a Colt match barrel in it. Eats everything I can throw at it, and as far as I can tell, it ain't never been smiffed on.

Then, there's this minty August 1945 production Remington Rand that I don't carry...yet.

I'll try to get a picture of the '42 GI Colt that I do carry a lot. Bought it in a gun show parkin' lot for 75 bucks with a few pieces missin'.
Now sports a Kart barrel, and the finish is a bit funky, but she does right good.;)

Can't forget this old girl. Late 1919 production GI that's reportedly one of the very last run of about 2500 pistols that Colt delivered to the Army in the spring of '19. Another untweaked pig that doesn't know the difference between hardball and a H&G semi-wadcutter. All original and correct...except the springs, of course. They tend to get a little tired after 80-odd years.
I haven't carried this one, but it's a distinct possibility at some point.

Maybe I'll go dig the Union Switch twins out of the safe deposit box and make aome pictures one day...:cool:

You guys are trying to give the Old Fuff a heart attack, right.... :evil:

Don't 'spose they have much value, being so old and all... I might offer $500.00 cash for the lot... Out the door... ;)

Don't hold back Old Fuff, don't hold back. $500.00 might buy you the grips.:D

Well I think I got them thinking.... :)

But I'm not sure just what they might be thinking... :scrutiny:

Maybe I don't want too know... :eek:

Fuff is yankin' yer chains. The reason that USGI pistols are so scarce in the southwestern United States is 'cause he's got 90% of'em hoarded in a cave somewhere in the desert...along with enough fine, old Smith & Wesson revolvers to build the Titanic II if they were reclaimed as scrap.

Been tryin' to get him to adopt me...but he ain't bitin'.

:neener:

Well I don't know... I've only got a few to go, and them you got look awfull attractive - not to mention the "trash" that Chuck dug up.... :evil:

But I got this feeling that if I adopted you I wouldn't have nut'ten for long... :uhoh:

You old fogies are too sot in your ways. I am an old fogie too but I haf sen de lite.:what:
You need to get into the modern plastic pistol world.:evil:
you need to learn to shoot one handed so when your plastic what -you -may -call -it goes KA_BOOM in your hand, you have a standby hand.:neener:

Why, Fuff! What EVAH do you mean??:evil:

Ken...Fuff would 'druther die and I'd 'druther take a beatin' with a razor strop than cave in to the Tupperware Trend. 'Sides...I gave my wheelguns a workout yesterday. I could do with those just fine if I was a mind to...

Now, Fuff! About them Smiths...:scrutiny:

You stop that...!! I don't want no powder burns on the cylinder face. :eek:

Besides, everybody knows that you can't survive a gunfight if you don't got a pistol with a high-cap magazine with lots and lots of rounds in it. Them old style cylinder-shooters are worthless for anything but hanging 'up on the wall to look at, although the bigger .44's will work as a paperweight...

Don't you ever read anything on the Internet??? :evil:

Yup Tuner, a bunch more Smiths are just what you need. I will help you finance your effort by taking all those old boat anchors you've been hoarding off you hands for above mixed scrap prices......:D

Don't get all stressed, Fuff ol' bean. I shot the 681 and the post pinned/recessed M13 just to keep my hand limbered up. The old beauties remain virtuous and unsullied.

2XS...Don't start with me.

Well O.K., but I don't want to find no empty .44 brass laying around your place... :D

Sniff...try to help some people out, and get no respect:confused: Guess I won't need the dump truck that I rented to haul all the scrap iron away from Tuner's. Won't need the 200 lbs of dog biscuits either. Note to self, don't count the pretties before they're in hand.

Old Fuff
December 11, 2006, 07:00 PM
Now there is a thought.... :uhoh:

I wonder if dog biscuits would work... :evil: :D

December 11, 2006, 07:16 PM
I'm confident that dog biscuits will work. You might want to get some treats for the dogs too.:evil:

The very idea that ya'll thought you could get my beauties with a truck fulla doggie treats is laughable. It's...it's...it...Whoa dawg! Where do ya think you're goin' with my Colt? Drop it!

Brian Williams

If not Doggie treats, maybe the thought of a good fried apple held by Dawn with a machined trigger on a silver necklace....

Might be a good distraction, but the Missus might be upset...

Dawgs would go nuts if they saw a range bag, or shotgun case.
Didn't matter, since they sometimes went to the range, or out in the woods, hunting, or just for a walk they got excited.

One liked 1911s , one liked Old Smiths, and they had their druthers on shotguns, rifles as well.

We got a shotgun that had had plastic furniture, and put the wood back on, do you realize how little time it takes for two dogs to destroy a synthetic shotgun stock!?!?

They had a ball! Evil grins, still having a ball!

Later, those dawgs gone, new dawg, different part of my life...

"Which gun do you want me wear on this walk?" dog would look, and pick a hand with the gun (1911 or K frame) and all happy and smug I'd wear it.

He was the one that got a hold of new box of 28 ga shells, and would let me have them back. We taped it good with clear tape, but he kept them in this corner in the reloading room where he helped. He also had GI plug, some old stocks, speedloader for a K frame...
just his little stash of toys...he would not chew, just paw , piddle and play.
Look over and he would be sleeping, box of 28 ga shells between his paws...

I come in one day, he was right there waiting, had new box of 45ACP on the floor in front of him - just a smiling.

Wife at the time "Dawg got you something today, guess you have figured that out by now..."

Seems he got the wife a box of ctgs for her K frame that day too...;)

I'm surrounded...and now Steve tells me that I can't even trust my dogs...that they'll sell me out for a box of Milk Bones or a toy...

Hey Fuff! Is that little poodle-dog about to go into heat yet? I figure about the third time she goes prancing across the Tuner acreage we can sneak in unnoticed:D

Ya'... but what will the rest do? Tuner may find the Old Fuff laid out in the back yard... :what:

Licked to death... :D
