Default Another Colt 1903 pistol

For my 'Art Deco' .32 ACP collection.

Found and obtained at local gunshow. Not bad shape, considering. Full report being prepared for purview on my blog. Spoiler alert: It shoots to the sights (perhaps a trifle high) out to twenty-five yards.

Now if I could just score a Remington 51 and an Astra 300. Not to mention a couple more Savage variations... sigh...

Those are dandy little pistols, flatter than a book, shoot well, excellent concealed carry gun (other than the cartridge, IMHO. You can do some good gallery loads with a light charge of Bullseye and a single pellet of 0 buckshot.

Very nice pistol you have there.

They are really neat little pistols and no, they are not elephant nor man stoppers - at least not in the popular sense.

Perhaps some day when my arthritis gets too bad for even .38 Special loads...

On that same note, 000 buckshot makes a decent gallery load for nearly all the .36 family of cartridges.

Thank you, sir. I am working on my prideful attitude.
