    DS snubbie

    I had another gun follow me home today. Hate it when that happens. 1975 Colt DS in Nickel. There are some light scratches and just a bit of cloudiness around the latch and Rampant Colt, but overall I am very pleased with it. It has Pachs on it now, but I am on the hunt for some nice wood stocks for it. I ran through the timing checks and all appears good. I wll get it out and shoot it later this weekend. You think its worth keeping?LOL.

    What a keeper! Pretty, and 20% more firepower than a J-frame. Looking forward to the range report!

    Something about it doesn't look right. Send it to me and I'll do my best to figure out what it is. Don't worry about cleaning it first, I'll do that before I shoot it.

    I like blue guns generally but a little flash is OK too.

    Sweet wheelie. If you don't like it I think I can "Pony" up the funds and take it off your hands.

    I am also, might I add, gettting a little weary of all you hay shakers taking advantage of my lack of funds, and buying up all MY COLTS

    Quite frankly I'm getting a little disgusted in your lack of compassion towards me, & some of my other DC brethren here.
    Knock it off!!!!!

    PS,,,,, Nice addition.

    Gotta love a DS. I bought a beautiful blued version before leave. I just could not bring myself to shoot it just yet.
