    Thanks William, I picked up the CZ in the original 1942 dated holster with 2nd magazine. I was really pleased with it once I received it. The Police knife, stag handle one I bought in the early 70's when i was about 16 years old from a friend for 45.00 He looked me up 20 years later asking if I still had it and if I wanted to sell it.... He thought he had gotten the best end of the deal with the 45.00's at the time, I'm glad I've kept it over the years. Thanks for the comments.

    Default Colt model 1903 US Property .32 (1942) added yesterday

    I had a Thursday night hot dog eating gathering last nigh with a couple of gun collector friends, I should have stayed home. One of the fellows brought over a Colt 1903 US Property Model since he knew I collected Colts, and I ended up coming home with it. I need to clean it up, a little dingy and the grips could use a little cleaning.

    After researching the serial number it appears that this piece was one of several that were issued to officers. My serial number "567835" according to Brunner's Book II page 164 the pistol was issued on 07/20/ 1961 to:
    Brigadier General H.L. Ash, Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Headquarters CON ARC
    Now Iím researching General Ash, it seems he was born Dec. 3, 1912 died Sep. 22, 1985. He was in WWII, Korea & Vietnam. More research to do so that I can document as much as I can on the man.
