All the damn guns I own and I carry my old worn finish and grips Colt Lightweight Cobra 38...go figure. The hammer is bobbed and it had a trigger job.. It was used by a detective in the mid 60's. My serial nr is circa 1964. Still a nice shooting 6 shot revolver.

real war relic,,,
I got this from my father who was a NRA instructor. A lot of history. It is a US Property Remington 1911-A1. My dad got it through the NRA at the Rock Island Arsenal, IL on 4/16/1962 for $17.00. See form DD 1149-4 and article hand dated.
I was 10 years old and I remember going to a farm with others for a shoot competition. The wives would bring food for a picnic. It was a festive event. You notice the day glow orange paint on the plastic grips, I did that for my dad so he could tell his 1911 from others there. His was tight and pristine.
This same pistol I would hand load ammo at his friends house and hop on my bicycle with the pistol in a holster at my side. I would rind to the Izaak Walton range at the edge of town and shoot by myself. for hours Even took this pistol to college at the University of Iowa. Those were different times.
(Sorry pic not real clear. My photo skills are lacking. The address on the DD1149-4 as my father are no longer.)
