    Updated GrandPa 380

    Got the repo grips on the Colt 1908. Been to the range twice with it and it shoots very well. Need to get used to the tiny sights, though.

    I've got one of those!!! It's not in as good of shape, and I have to get a new barrel for it. I came across it for free. A lady that used to work for me said she wanted to get rid of a pistol because her daughter and new grand daughter were moving in with her. She brought it to me in a full leather holster. I asked what she wanted for it as I was unbuttoning the dust cover. She said.. nothing, just give it a good home. I rolled back the dust cover and pulled it part way out to reveal, yup.... a stallion! I about sharted myself. I asked her if she knew what it was, and she said yup, and it's yours now, free of charge.

    Apparently someone put two rounds down the pipe at one point, so the barrel is bulged, but other than that it appears functional. If you know where to find a replacement barrel for one of these, I'd appreciate any direction you may have. I like those repro grips too.
