I had access to my Father's 1911 and S&W Chiefs Special in my early years. I guess you could say that I came to view those guns as mine, or at the very least, ours. The very first gun that I bought and paid for with my hard earned money was a Colt Python, blue 4". In a moment of youthful stupidity I traded that gun away.
Dad, still has his 1911 and S&W, and I have several also. I always check out the used revolvers when I go into the gun store, I may never get that Python back, but I will get one, and then the family will be reunited.
There is in life perhaps one fleeting moment when the courage, dedication and resolve of one man gambling against all odds will alter the destiny of nations.
