    Early Christmas.

    My father just handed me his old Colt Trooper .357 that hes had for ages and used through his police academy. Told me to take good care of her, nickles a little rough but it should clean up nice. This is my first revolver, im really excited to put some rounds through it. Another one to add to my personal collection. I'll try to get some photos up later

    Very nice. Family heirloom guns are always great to get. They just mean more to me than off the shelf models.

    OOOooo...Nickel too! Very nice! I like Colt revolvers. Those Troopers soak up recoil of the .357 Magnum nicely. That's a serious handgun and very useful.
