Discussion in 'Handguns: Revolvers' started by Gordon, Nov 8, 2018.
They like to be with their own
Mine love to mix together
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.
Some times they can get along.
I have 2 Colts and 10 Smiths, but I like both a lot.
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?
My Dad has a 4" Tiger. Its not a bad little gun, actually, lol.
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.
That Diamondback is gorgeous!
Colt's cylinder release goes the wrong way, the cylinder rotates the wrong way.
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.
Humphrey Bogart chose the Colt Official Police. How can he be wrong
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 !
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.*
*No revolvers were injured when taking this picture.
Smith? Smith? We don't need no stinking Smith!
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.
And here is my attempt to end this thread
