    My colts and smiths are stuck up like that too. My Rugers, actual working guns, are friendly and hang with everyone. ;)

    Still have a number of S&Ws, quite a few Rugers but no Colts (has been some time since I had one in the line-up).

    They all get along very well, thank you!

    My Colts & Smiths all get together and with the other wheelies but usually hang out with similar calibers; the 45acps don't often hang with the 38/357 crowd.

    Hi ...
    My revolvers seem to be fairly liberal in that the S&W, Colts and Rugers seem to congregate together.
    They do seem a bit narrow minded in that the .357s rarely hang out with the larger calibers.
    The most bigoted revolvers I have seem to be the .41Magnums...while the Rugers get along with the S&W there doesn't seem to be a Colt in the group. That is more Colt's fault than the other manufacturers though... I am sure if Colt made a .41Mag revolver, my revolvers would accept one with open arms.

    Even my Dan Wesson revolvers get along with the Colt's,S&W and Rugers.

    I also have 1 RG, 1 1895 Nagant, 1 Spanish S&W copy, and 1 INA Tiger. So not exclusively the two "premium" brands

    Now you're just showing off Gordon......

    And that's fine by me! :)

    Hmmm, think I see a 14, 2x15, 17, 1905, and a 29 for the Smiths and a Python, Trooper, Lawman, DS, and two Off. models for the Colts?

    Not two 15s , one 18 in .22. On the Colt side that is a 6" Diamondback in .22 , and the one with the Fuzzy Farant grips is a ".357" of 1953 vintage , the action rivals my 8 " Python .The later later middle 4" gun is a .22 mag. I just opened this double sided case on the bottom of one of the safes to take each one out , put in snap caps and cycle a coulple times after spraying in the cocked hammer hole Ballistol and wiping and put back. I am selling down in a five year plan, I got lots more of Colts and Sand W .my kids all ready chose thiers. I am keeping a few for my last days, let's be honest on what we can use , maintain and need after all. I have seen too many estates miss managed on firearms with dealers ECT. Getting the Lions share of $ and ignorant pricing. I am selling locally the stuff that seems in demand in the Monterey area. A lot on GunBroker, and some on the Hgh Road forums. I give good deals on stuff to people I like . But all the guns I now have are mostly investment s that I don't want to lose anything on, the good news is I bought at good prices a while back . :)

    Mine are more along the line of birds of a feather. S&W ones gather about my house and the Colts stay at the gun store. ;)

    Colt's cylinder release goes the wrong way, the cylinder rotates the wrong way. :p

    I don't own any Colts, one Ruger (my only single action revolver) and nearly all the rest are S&W so I might be bias some here.

    I had full-sized S&W's together with full-sized Colts in the gun safe. They got along well. Apparently some of them fell in love. Now when I open the safe I see snubbies in there, too.

    I have few S&Ws, no offense, but do folks think Colts are gold plated? Because the prices are a little nutz.

    Those two Officer's model Matches were my dad's as is the Cobra pictured. The OMMs are .22& .38 and matched for weight and actions by Austin Behlert in the late 50s when he was a local pistolsmith and my Dad was a regular NRA competitor at the Old Bridge range in NJ . I HAD a later Colt Officer's Model Match Target .32 S&W that was his "cheat gun " in his final years of competition . He bought it used and it was factory tuned and he claimed it gave him an edge over the .38 guys. When I put my kids thru college in the early 90s it went to the auction block as I knew it was rare. Even then I got about 2K$ as I remember. I also got his High Standard HD 6" heavy barrel he started shooting NRA matches with in the early 50's. It is still a tack driver ! I gave my son a few years back his Ruger Mark ! 6 7/8" replacement for the HS HD he bought in 1968 while I was in Nam , it was tuned by Austin Behlert also. His Hardball 1911 circa 1913, as tuned by Micro sight and Bob Chow who I had put a Barstow barrel and re tighten up the action in the middle 80s I still have !
    practicalstuff043_zps60c98b56.jpg I do have a son who would apreciate it, but he is still wowee zowee over my Lawson full on Goldcup cutom I gave him, he completed on his mill the Docter red dot rear sight replacement I always wanted to do since 2000 or so, :)

    Pistols run in the family; my Uncle Gil was a NYPD detective until early 60s when he retired . I had about 6 of his guns, most of them I think after his death in 1980 He gave me my first Big game rifle when I graduated HS. The Colt .38 here was his duty detective gun as a detective . He carried a REmington 51 .380 off duty , which I have. This rare "520" NYSP S&W .357 was bought by him right before his passing from a quick cancer bout from a major in the NYSP who was given a few by S&W very cheaply to evaluate . This gun is super accurate and hits dead on with 158 grain .357 Remington ammo ! Hard to let that one go :( the Foster Jack is mine, he carried a Bucheimer sap !

    I came downstairs one night and this pile of Smiths and Colts were having an orgy of some sort. I think there was even a Ruger in the pile.

    Who says they don't like each other.*

    I was texting a buddy from work a while back about a newly required revolver. I sent him a random picture off Google saying I'm not going to stop buying untill I get a pile like this one. Well now I know where that pic came from LOL.
