    '51 navy. Okay, it's a replica. I guess a 1917 Smith and Wesson.

    That little mouse gun is pretty cool. :D Sorta reminds me of an NAA Earl.

    Forehand Arms .32 S&W-L, slightly modified though.
    Dated somewhere around 1900 (+/- 4 years).
    My carry gun today.

    Currently my oldest that gets used is a Colt New Army commercial in 32-20 from 1907; last year they were made.

    I took this Smith to the range a couple of times for a function test. Its a Smith & Wesson Double Action 3rd model made in 1888 that my Dad gave me years ago. Its been in the family a long time.

    Colt Police Positive, 5" barrel, made in (I think) 1919. I tried shooting it with .38 Special brass cut down to .38 S&W length, but the rims were too thick and it would bind. So I bought some real .38 S&W brass from Starline, but I haven't gotten around to loading them yet.

    Colt Pocket Positive in 32, from 1912. I only fired it a few times. Eventually traded it off for something else.

    This is the oldest (1849) that is fired on occasion. I have one that seventy years older, but I don't shot it.

    That's bad ass. You win.
    Not many people have the balls to fire a Colt that is worth several thousand dollars (10s of thousands?) My hat's off too you!

    Don't have a picture handy, but back during the late 1950's I fired six rounds out of an original Colt 2nd. model Dragoon. It worked fine, but I wouldn't do that today. Prices are way up from what they were in the '50's.

    During the same time period I fired a number of open-top Colt's (models 1849, 1851 and 1860) and an occasional Remington New Army. At the time there were no reproductions or replicas.

    Original Baby Dragoon. Pictures exist of me firing it, but I haven't seen them for years. The owner of the Baby loved "exercising" his old guns; I probably wouldn't doit myself these days, but it was fun to let that old piece's voice be heard again.

    I shoot my Nagant Revolver about twice a year. I think it's dated to about 1928, IIRC.
