    They had a Baby Browning LNIB, but it was more than twice as much as mine.

    Took it to the range today it works well.

    How's the recoil on those? Non-existent like the .22? Or quite a bit more?
    I've never shot a .25 or a .32.

    Very low recoil, about like a .22 Wjich I also shot today.

    Ooooo! That's kind of interesting. Good of you posting pics. A genuine Colt nonetheless. Good for you! Personally, I'd keep it as more of a collectible. Looks like it's in good shape. Enjoy it.

    Nice little pistol. I like the .22 over the .25, but I prefer the center fire cartridge over the rim fire. Congrats, and enjoy.
