    I'm not sure why but I just cannot resist an old blued Colt, or any blued snub for that matter. Not black, not parked, BLUE BABY! Show me some goodies. :D

    I picked this up from a good friend. Found the original magazine ad and factory grips on one of the online auction sights.

    Very nice S&W! I have recently become quite interested in the 45LC cartridge. It's a great round and there are some mighty fine guns to shoot it with. :evil:

    Pictures of blued guns should be taken outside! If the weather permits I'll take some nice ones of mine tomorrow. For now here's my girlfriend's (only half blued) Model 37.

    Here's a nice gun in a crappy picture:

    [​IMG]

    That's a S&W Model 10 with very pretty, crisply checkered gold emblem S&W grips. The picture of course does not do it justice, but my wife took the good camera on her trip to the Grand Canyon...

    That holster is one I made, with partial elk suede lining and a thumb break.

    That's a nice Colt snubbie, but man, they use dangling prepositions in their ads. Watch out for that. :)

    grimjaw: I always liked that photo of the GP100. Nice angle.

    Well, you asked for Colt's, so here's a couple:

    Detective Special

    Three-Fifty-Seven

    Officer's Model Match .22:

    and a New Frontier .22:

    That's enough bandwidth on my part. I'm really an S&W guy, anyhoo:
