If I may introduce myself.......

I was questioned about owning any Colts. I currently only have four:


The two on the left are New Frontiers in .44 Special, the 7 1/2" on the Wright is .45 Colt. Then there is a .357 Magnum SAA that has been customized. The gun has a S&W rear sight with a Ruger Blackhawk front sight. The backstrap is brass from an 1851 Navy, and the grips are walnut I whittled out many years ago.

The .357 has an interesting history to me. The gun was bought at a store closing in Memphis, packed in a Ruger Blackhawk box and priced at $87.50. The man who bought it later gave the gun to his son, and his son Mike, became my son-in-law. In 1979 Mike was killed in an auto accident, and some time later my daughter gave the gun back to her former father-in-law. After a few years I saw the gun in a gun shop. Didn't have enough to buy the gun outright, so traded Colt Python for it. I added the brass backstrap and Ruger front sight after acquiring the gun.

Welcome aboard.

One thing though, you need to get out and shoot more. You rolled that ammo 8 years ago. LOL!
Welcome aboard. You may be new here, but obviously you are not new to guns! Nice collection you have there.:)
No talk about the "correct" way to cock a Peacemaker & you should get along OK. :)

Yeah, they're a little hostile on that forum if you step outside their norm. I've been watching myself over there pretty carefully, trying to sort of ease out.
