Default Colt 1908 Vest Pocket - Range Report

I had a chance to shoot my Colt 1908 Vest Pocket a few weeks ago, for the first time.
The gun was manufactured in 1909 and shows a lot of signs of wear, but it proved very reliable and surprisingly accurate!

The following grouping was at 10 yards.
I attribute the "flyer", on the bottom left, to human error as I was too conscience of the grip safety on this little gun and the first shot sorta got away from me.
However, once I discovered that no special manipulation was needed for the grip safety, my groupings tightened up pretty nice.

Not bad for a gun that's over 100 years old.

That'll do.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
