    Drooling On A Colt Catalog

    My county library has a magazine and periodical recycling section where in the past, I've found some good stuff, like a bunch of 1950s and 60s American Rifleman magazines. Today I found a Collector's Edition 1996 Colt Firearms catalog.

    Ah, the good old days. Imagine, just 9 years ago, Colt was selling 28 different models of the M1911 pistol, 9 different models of the .380 Gov't & Mustang pistols, 9 different models of the Python, 6 models of the Anaconda, 12 variants of the Single Action Army revolver, as well as the .22 Target, the Double Eagle, the King Cobra, the Detective Special, & 7 variants of the AR15.

    It's enough to make a grown man cry.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Colt - At some point they actually cared about the domestic market. It makes me sad too. Where did it all go wrong?
