    My #1 carry gun. Sorry for the poor quality picture. I'll get a better one next time.

    Currently only two:

    Colt New Frontier, .45 Colt, 7 1/2" barrel.

    Colt Single Action Army. 357 Magnum, 5 1/2" Barrel. This gun highly customized. Rear sight is Smith & Wesson, front sight is Ruger Blackhawk. Backstrap is brass from 1851 Navy.

    I've beem through several M1917s, New Services, and Officer's Model Match, one Colt Python.

    I still contend that if Colt had kept the New Service in the line, made it a .44 Magnum and given it the Python treatment, they'd be tall hog at the trough today.

    I nearly forgot completely about one of my all-time favorites, a .22 Colt Frontier Scout, one of those dual-tone little single actions.

    This little gun provided many squirrels for the pot.

    Talking 357 Phython

    I only got one Colt. It's a 1978 Colt Python 357 Mag. Still shoots as good as the day my wife bought her for me. I can't guess how many rounds have gone through it but they are many thousands.

    Now there's a Colt guy! Show us some pics (especially of the '03 and '08 hammerless guns, those are my favorites). By the way, how do you pronounce "rfawcs"?

    These are the only ones I have photos of so far. I'm trying to find the time to photograph all my firearms.



    Top is Official Police .38 SP; Pocket Positive .32 S&W



    Top to bottom
    1908 Pocket Hammerless .380 ACP
    1903 Hammerless .32 ACP
    1908 Hammerless .25 ACP


    I usually spell it. I haven't figured out a polite pronunciation yet.

    I love the look of those hammerless guns. They're sweet. I'd purchase one if I could find one I could afford. fawcs may sound like someone trying to clear their throat (on offense intended).

    They're some of my favorites also; always remind me of Bogart and Cagney.

    You just always have to be on the lookout. I picked up the .380 at a gunshow for $400 4-5 years ago, and the .32 for $500, from a customer of the gunsmith I use who heard me remark I was looking for one. Finding these pistols in good or better condition is pretty tough, and the really nice ones usually command a premium as they are in some demand now.

    The Anaconda was a fine revolver, but it was stainless steel. And it certainly was no New Service. The New Service was all forged/machined hand fitted carbon steel construction, same as the Python.

    The Anaconda was not.
