Thank you, Mr Colt!

That’s one of the best-looking handguns ever made. I first laid eyes on this model in the front window of a jewelry store in 1969. I think the price was $349.99. Shoulda woulda coulda.
My only Colt.

With diamond checkered Herretts no less.... old school.

I had a chance to buy one of those new for $115.00 back in 1968.
When I came back with the money a few days later the price had gone up to $130.00 so I did not buy it.

Your Trooper & my Highway Patrol make pretty fair pair.
