See you tonorrow, Pugs. Let the best man win for he shall buy the beer!

Saddlering- you deserve that Colt. Every man should have a Woodsman tucked away somewhere.

While we're on the subject, anybody know of a leather guy who makes a classic style holster like the old Heiser?

Pugs and gnoahh,
Weโ€™ve got plenty of feral cats right across the street, as a matter fact thatโ€™s right down range. Weโ€™ll see what your Colts will do. ๐Ÿ˜€

No cats were harmed after shooting at Joe's but we did drink the appropriate Woodsman beer.

One of the shops I go to, got some Woodsmans in on consighnment, along with a couple High Std's and Browning Challengers. The one I'm getting, and a pair of 3rd 4" MT's, and a pair of 3rd 4" Sports, also a nice 1st series Target {hint gnoahh}. All in great condition...... Not too bad of prices, either....

Huntsman, any insight about the plastic extended grips Colt installed on wartime government contracts and the balance of leftover ones used up on immediate postwar Series1's? Were they Colt's idea, and perchance appeared before the war, or were they ordained by wartime Uncle Sam?

My early postwar 4" has those grips (righteous because I got it from its original owner who assured me it was exactly as it was when he bought it new, as reward to himself for making it home from the Pacific in one piece). They feel really good on the 6" but will leave them on the 4" where they belong.

I've had a couple sets of the military contract extended grips. The only insight I have about that is, personally can't stand them. Don't like having to reach between them to change mags, and the pistol don't fit as nice in yer back Wrangler pocket. If I want a longer grip, I might as well get a few more features with it, and get a second or third series pistol and have the mag catch easy to get to.

Not only that but the extended ears look like a breakage waiting to happen. Still and all I like them. Not much opportunity to carry one here in suburban Maryland anyway. I like standard S1 grips too. Hell, I like them all.

TRI-FEC-TA, baby......

background check went thru a day before they said it would..... They still have 2, 3rd series Sports and 3, 3rd series 4" MT's. 1, first series Target, but it's a little high at $999 unless they have the box and goodies. I didn't ask. Still was 2 High Standards there and I didn't look at them outside the glass.

All three functioned flawlessly and shoot to the sights. I have to get some stuff to get ready for the coldfront/snow that's coming, but I'll wring some more mags thru them tomorrow.
