I thoroughly disapprove of duels.
If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand
and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.
Great looking work horses! That Sig looks fantastic, it really has earned its keep!
I can do worn handguns. I have more of them than I do safe-queen material.
This WWI Colt had a larger measure of its WWII Parkerizing remaining when I got it in spring of 1978 and the walnut stocks were less worn. Since that time it's been more than a few miles hiking, carried in a U.S. military flap holster dated 1944. Also has been carried concealed in a Bianchi X-15 shoulder holster under a suit coat. It's been shot a lot as well.
Traded two concrete turtle swimming pool ornaments for this '50s Smith & Wesson Military & Police .38 Special, later termed the Model 10 by the factory. Don't know its history but wear patterns indicate long term holster use by a lawman.
Genuine NYPD gun, this Colt Official Police produced in 1953 has the officer's badge number on its back strap.
A worn but slick and tight Colt Army Special .41 Long Colt from 1925 with an unknown history. Shown with its dad below, a Colt New Navy from 1901, also in .41 Long Colt.
Shown before on occasion, this 1971 vintage Smith & Wesson Model 10 Heavy Barrel .38 Special was my first handgun and is still favored for most purposes. Since acquiring it as "like new" in 1975, I've put all the wear and dings on this one, including a new one on the "knuckle" of the top of the back strap just this weekend when it fell out of the outer pocket of a suitcase onto the nose plate of a two-wheeled hand dolly from 4 feet. Oh well...

I'd show my inscribed 12 yr old Gen 3 G19..BUT I don't know how to post pics. My computer assistant(my son)is too busy jumping out of planes and shooting M4's with the Army. It says..."Fallschirmjager" on the right side of the slide. It was my duty weapon from 2000 until I retired in'06(had it engraved out in Vegas at a Jewelry Show). ANYWAY......................................
