Wonderful Family

Colt Cowboy 45 Colt
Model CB1850
ColtCowboy Single Action
5 1/2" Barrel 45 Colt, Blue/Color Case Finish

Yes I do spoil myself. My birthday present to me.

My kids took all my hints, and added a few. Daughter did what I asked...two dozen of her special baked oatmeal cookies. My favorite. Son washed and waxed my van. Grandson washed and waxed my truck. Son-in-law against my wishes bought me a very nice gun cleaning kit. He said HE had to give me something gun related. That boy does know how to suck up.

Like have always said....I have the best family.

Oh my.........range time tomorrow. My work is never done.

See Ya

It's just terrible to see how hard you are working!

Lucky duck, all I ever get are socks, heh heh heh. We'll expect a full range report!

Mighty nice. I once said I'd like to carry a colt single action army and everybody jumped all over me. I know their comments were correct, but I just "like" the gun. Did you ever see the Miami Vice episode "El Viejo" with Willie Nelson playing the old Texas Ranger. It never slowed him down to use a six shooter!

Tony...let me adopt your family! My motorhome needs a wash and wax really bad!
Happy Birthday and enjoy your new gift!

You are a fortunate man! I like the "hog leg" too. I like single action revolvers as well,but I cant afford a colt atm. The cookies and the carwashes are nice too. Happy Birthday DIMW!

HermitJim said...

Sounds like a good way to celebrate your birthday, buddy! Hope you saved me a cookie!

Have to admit that they treat you pretty good! They must like you or something...!

Happy Birthday Buddy!

Very nice. I would love to have a genuine Colt SAA but unless some relative has one wrapped in an oily rag in the attic that nobody knows about my odds are slim.

Lawyer said...

Nice gun! Can't wait for the range report.

The Hermit said...

You shoot that gun yet? I'm waiting to hear all about it.

Ken said...

...i feel like such a heel,i'm sooo sorry...

Sweet gun! I love single actions. They are about the only revolvers I can shoot decently. I just don't mesh with double action trigger pulls. My Cimarron Thunder is one of my favorite guns to shoot, and I'm crazy about the birdshead grip.
