    $400 is a pretty good profit. Good deal.

    I used the money to buy a beautiful 1985 vintage LNIB 12 gauge Browning Citori skeet gun. I shoot and collect Browning shotguns. They're my crack habit... :)

    That's one incredible estate sale find! I can understand your addiction for Browning shotguns, but that Colt SAA would have found a new home in my gun safe.

    That is a beautiful gun, not sure if I was in your shoes I would have sold it regardless of the profit. Thanks for sharing the pictures, someday my collection will include a Colt SAA

    I have the exact same gun -- nickel, hard rubber grips, .45 Colt -- but with a 5.5" barrel. It's a beauty, and it's for my kids. BTW, I paid about $1,400 for mine a few years ago.

    Colt SAAs are my favorite guns. I have that same one, and it's my favorite of all my Colts.

    I have one just like it, NIB, except in the uncommon .44 Special caliber.

    Well, he did say that he's a shotgun nut more than a handgun hero... :D Look at it this way. The Colt has likely gone to someone that will appreciate it as much as you keyboard warriors that are salivating over the pictures and moaning about "Why not me ? ! ? !. You're all just envious that it isn't YOU that got it... :D

    Appreciate all the nice comments. I bought the gun for a $1000 even. Got $1400 for it. Which allowed me to buy this beautiful Browning Citori 12ga/28" Special Skeet... :)

    Mmm. I like your logic. Though I'd have been looking for a nice old Model 24 instead :D
