    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. :)
