    Just think, with all that money wasted you could have bought a few nice semi-custom 1911s. Then you would realize there really is a big difference in quality. :supergrin:

    I'm not an AR fan, so I only have two for nostalgia:

    SP1 because it reminded me of the M16 I was issued in Basic Training.

    HBAR with the bayonet lug and detachable carrying handle. It's the closest to an M16A2 that I was issued later on.

    And then I can ballwash with the rest of the people about how great these custom guns are and how others don't know squat about guns and how my custom guns will outshoot anything even though I wouldn't take on a challenge.

    I leave modern junks to cool people like you to buy up.

    At least I'm not giving out weak guns to my loved ones.

    Don't mind the haters. Damn shame a guy just can't go out and buy what he wants without catching crap from someone. I for one like what you bought. Congrats!

    Panic? Delta Elite? You must have been ****tin' your britches in fear. :supergrin":
  8. Nice collection. I am also like you, someone who really appreciates revolvers...the older the better. Most of my collection are S&Ws, but I have started picking up some Colts. If I had to sell my guns, the semis would be the first to go.

  9. Agreed! Nice pick-ups OP.
  10. I'd wager you have the largest Colt handgun collection on GT. Impressive :)
  11. People like me bough our guns while ago and are not running around like chickens with out heads cut off buying up random copies of antiquated guns in obsolete calibers.

    People like me did our buying ahead of panicking hordes like the one you are in. We did it cool headed, well researched, tested.

    “Strong guns” means what in your mind? Guns that are better suited for driving nails then more reliable, accurate, higher capacity, light weight modern guns?

    People like you buy sucky guns. People like me buy sweet guns.

    Why do you hate your wife so much that you gave her a mousegun?

    I'm fairly certain that I have more Smithies than the Pony. I need to do a count.

    I'm a Smith&Wesson wheelgun man too. However, one can't be a revolver enthusiast and leave out Colt.

    It's my experience that while SW has better mechanism, the Colt has better ergonomics and shootability. The fixed sights on the Colt revolvers were much better defined and easier to pick up and align than the SW counterparts. Also, it seems like the Colt points better when shooting single-handedly too.
  15. I agree that you can't be a revolver fan without owning both brands which is why I picked up a few Colts. I just picked up a Colt book to go along with the S&W Reference book. I don't think the Colt book is as good as the S&W book, but it is helpful.

    These days I am picking up Colts since there aren't too many S&Ws that I want that I don't have. Pythons, Trooper IIIs, Police Positive, Office Police, and SAA. All really nice guns.

    From my experience (limited with the Colts), S&W will be more reliable and can take last longer without maintenance (more Colts seems to be out of time than S&W). S&W has better double action while Colt is better for single action for the most part. Never had a problem with either brand's fixed sights though.
