Ive got many carry guns, but none that I like as much as these Colts. I got paranoid for a while and bought 3 different Kel-Tecs (that I have nothing against), but I miss carrying the Colts. Ill move these back into the rotation for a while. Nickel Cobra, Magnum Carry, Pocket 9.

Thank you guys, I am really fond of Colts. The Cobra carries the easiest because of the wood grips. I have plans on changing the grips on the Pocket9 to wood, but I havnt gotten around to it. I think it will be much easier to draw with the wood. I just thought I would share these with you guys because Im just now getting back into them. When I went and changed over to Kel-Tec to protect these little fellas, I forgot how fun they were to shoot and carry. Kevin.

Definitely get some thin wood grips for the Pocket nine.It really makes all the difference.I really like my pocket nine.

....think that Colt made a BIG mistake by discontinuing the pocket nine? Any idea as to why they did that? Seems like an ideal concept - mousegun scale but big enough to shoot a 9mm handily.

Thank you fellas for the kind words. I do like my Colts....alot!! Hunter......you have some very nice ones too!! I love that 'New Agent'. My dealer called today and said he has one in for me, but I dont know if I can justify the cost. I already have a Defender. Shootist.......I think Colt stopped making the Pocket9 because of a possibe law suit from Kahr, stating copyright infringment. I think it had something to do with the offset lug. But I could be wrong. I really think they are missing out on some of the market. They could easily be selling their Pocket9, Mustang, Magnum Carry, Detective Special, but what do I know?

I have carried the Special Combat Government and the Gold Cup National Match Commander a few times but I do prefer my Gold Cup Trophy over the rest for an all around duty pistol.
The New Agent is a great pistol and I believe you may need to take a look at the one your dealer has.

I am also a Colt admirer and have 2 of them that are small enough for concealed carry, a Detective Special .38 and a Defender .45.

I've always wondered about picking up a Pocket Nine--but damn they are expensive. Nice Colts! Took me several years to get a Magnum Carry and it's one of my favorites.

Well I have one and Love it!! It didnt make my 'favorite' list because of the weight. But I do carry it often...mostly in the winter.

My Cobra is my everyday gun, but every once and a while I have the urge to carry my 1908. I would love to have that Magnum Carry!!!!!
