So my wife and I stop by the gunstore yesterday to kill a few minutes. She sees this "cute" little revolver on the rack with "pearl" grips and falls in love with it or something. I mean she wants this little gun.

It's a Colt Pocket Positive in 32 S&W. The gun looks good, a flecks of rust that would probably buff out with an oily rag. I guess a 2 1/2 or 3" barrel. Everything on it locks up and lines up tight. I doubt it's been fired much. The price seems reasonable and in line with what I see a couple of them selling (not asking) for on "Gunbroker."

Anybody got one? How do you like it? I mean it's a Colt, so I'm sure it's well made gun. The store said they're out of ammo for it now, but then they're out of ammo for most anything right now.

Don't bother to tell me it's not a good defensive cartridge. It's not for that. She just thinks it's "cute."

I shot one once and it was nice. But, can anyone fix one if need be? I've read here quite a few times that Colts are difficult to work on and there are very few people left that know old Colts.

I would sure like to have it
I have several of the larger version Colt 32 Long Police Positives and I think they
are neat little guns
Fun to shoot , fun to own Mine are from the 1930's What other Colt of that vintage can you buy for under $300.00 dollars I have never needed repairs and doubt I ever will
But I know several gunsmiths capable of working on them if need be.
I would buy it for your wife in a minute.

I love old Colts and if the price is good, I say put that old pony in your corral
