Default Colt Military Model 1905 .45 ACP Pistol


I've posted photos of my Colt Military Model 1905 .45 ACP pistol serial number 5090 (made 1910) which was shipped to Praeger Hardware Co. San Antonio TX on March 27, 1911 and sold to H. N. Moore Co. Also shown is a box of vintage 1914-dated 200-grain .45 ACP Winchester ammo made for this pistol.

Do any members from Texas or elsewhere have any information about H N Moore Company of San Antonio? I haven't had any luck in getting any info on Moore or his company.

I just rechecked Ancestry.com after a long absence and found the H N Moore Company listed in the 1910 and 1912 San Antonio City Directory as a Sporting Goods Store on 326 West Commerce Street. Nice tie-in to this pistol. It would be interesting to see if anything is still there.

street view on google maps lets you look at the location.

There's an old red brick building there with a few shops in it.
