    handed down

    so another firearm was handed down a generation just like may times before, but this time it was me. i remember when i was 14 years old and my father had this little pocket pistol that i always wanted but was never quite the smooth enough talker to get it from him. well yesterday must have been the right time and it was handed down. its a colt series 90 .380 pony in stainless, i know its not the rarest or worth the most but this means more to me then most things, alot of sentimental value behind it. anyways ill get some pics uo and let you check her out.

    Pretty sweet! I'm almost sure this is a collectible. I don't know if I'd shoot it or not. Used ones are listing anywhere from $700-$950. Then the sentimental value alone. This might need to be a safe keeper.

    Great little firearm. A real breeze to carry.
    Extra mags pop up for it all the time on Gunbroker.com

    Couldn't ask for a nicer 'hand me down'...

    You've found a great little pocket pistola there.

    well i went today and shot about 10rounds through it, and i must say it shoots like a dream, i probably wont be shooting it much to keep it in good shape. it did have some carbon inside of it were my dad shot it way long ago and just put it in a safe, so i gave it some good tlc and cleaned it up spotless. i doubt it will be a put in safe gun, but i will be taking great care of it and will probably pocket carry it a little bit. needless to say im very impressed by this little guy and also it is my first colt

    I think you should enjoy your gun, even if that means carrying it daily. It has some little scuffs on it anyhow and it was made to be used. I'm glad to hear it functions well, as some didn't.

    You can always search for Mec Gar magazines, they are original manufacturer quality, I wouldn't use anything but Mec Gar or Colt mags in your gun. I still think a second mag is cheaper than a second gun...
