Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The new 0480XSENNC Colt Ghost Commander is built on the lightweight Commander frame with a green fiber optic front sight and half moon rear sight!



Fantastic new limited edition Colt from Talo. The special run is limited to 400.

They are going for >$1100, I think you should snap that one up too. With only 400 made its sure to appreciate!

Isn't there a story to go with that one?

Yep, and thanks for askin' Rusty!

Dad's M1911 A1 carried from Normandy 6/6/1944 to Dachau in April 1945.

The American VII Corps, which began to debark on UTAH at 0630 included my Dad in the spearhead landing. (First boots on Utah)


4th Division troops behind a concrete wall on Utah Beach

The assaulting troops quickly took the upper hand and within three hours the enemy force defending the beach had surrendered and Allied troops and supplies were moving inland. In all, some 23,000 men came ashore at UTAH that day.

Many men distinguished themselves that morning, among them the 4th Division's Assistant Division Commander, Brig. Gen. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. Going ashore with the first wave, Roosevelt contributed materially to the success of his forces by personally reconnoitering the area inland from the beach. He then returned to the beachhead time and again, without concern for his own life, to lead groups of his men over a seawall through enemy fire to safety. He earned a Medal of Honor for his gallantry.

His 45 was fired numerous times during his European Holiday but the one he spent in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany produced his only confirmed kill. (Not his only one, it's just that no one counts when in battle)

He was rummag.......ah........inspecting a drawer in a desk at a forward German Pay Post with his 45 held overhead when a German Officer came out of a closet drawing his Luger. If he had taken it out prior to exiting the closet this story may have been told in German! (And the whole coming out of the closet story is not a pun!)

The resulting firefight was one 45 ACP round and a loud thud as the German returned to the closet.





Sorry for the thread-jacking.

I love hearing stories like that. Thanks for refreshing my memory.
