    Pair of old Colts

    I finally got them together....

    1912 Colt 1908 .25 ACP
    1970 Colt Cobra .38 Special

    Found me a 72 Detective Special and I am working the owner for a price we can both live with.

    If that goes well... onto the big buck buy..... 4" blued Python 60-70's vintage

    Looking good!

    If you gotta do .25 ACP then you can hardly go wrong with the tiny, yet robust Colt Model 1908.

    The Colt Cobra would have been an excellent fit in today's market which holds light weight in such high regard. The Cobra fits just about anywhere a S&W J-Frame will fit and holds 6 rounds of .38 Special goodness. Too bad Colt discontinued it before the current popularity of concealed carry took off.

    If you can get that Detective Special then you'll have a concealable .38 Special snub the size of the Cobra but that shoots more like a .38 service revolver.

    Even though I have a 6-inch Python I think the 4-inch is the best looking variation.

    And given today's news, I thought you were talking about Manning & Unitas. :)

    Nice looking pair of Colts in your pic.

    I thought it was going to be pictures of Peyton Manning and Adam Vinatieri.

    Nice looking guns.
