Diggin' the Gold
« on: August 24, 2011, 11:09:32 PM »
Boys, now you know I wouldn't tell ya if it weren't true. I am seriously diggin' this little Colt brasser I just bought. The balance is damn near perfect; the Grip fits my hand like a glove and this thing points like nobody's business. Not to mention the action is soooooweeeeet!
Never liked brassers. But hell, I could try.... ;)
Yeah, I could.

Sam, there is so much enabling going on here, so many guys buying guns at a high rate of speed, that we'll all be toast soon.  You don't want to be the last man standing, do ya?

Capt, Good to hear you like your new Colt shorty. I am happy with mine as well. Mine was the best Pietta out of the box that i have ever bought. The bolt fit the cylinder, The timing was perfect. The cylinder pin was a little short a few shims took care  of that i a hurry. At the range the little Colt performed well. It liked 25grains of FFF and two 1/8 hard felt wads.

I really like the round barrels more than octagon.  That is a really nice pistol.
