1. Done … much to the chagrin of my lovely wife (the dear girl) who has said many times, “I can never get you anything because you always buy the things you want for yourself.”

  2. Colt Officer’s Model Match, I believe.

    I hope it’s in 38 Special.

    It’s been on my list for a long time.

    I look at them on Collectors Firearms from time to time.

    Merry Christmas.

  3. Kim, a Very Merry and Very Best to you and the rest of your local and extended clan.

    I did buy myself a holiday (Hanukkah) present … the 22LR AR conversion kit from CMMG. This:
    – but I found it for a LOT less scratch than CMMG’s full retail price.

    Given that I have 5x as much rimfire fodder as I do .223/5.56 … I can live-fire *most* of my AR drills until the ammo makers catch up and we’re back to a more somewhat normal / somewhat sane environment.

  4. I may already have. Too bad there isn’t a gun of the month club, to join.

    Merry Christmas fellow enthusiasts

  5. A Colt or Smith revolver of that vintage and quality would be a great addition to the collection but the bank account couldn’t withstand that big a hit right now. In the old days higher quality guns were called “officer’s models”. Isn’t that an elitist view to believe that officers somehow deserved “better” pistols than the unwashed masses? Was it in recognition of their high status? I just finished watching a couple of BBC communist archaeologists talk about “high status grave goods” which in their view was a very serious crime – maybe even more than smoking in public or voting for a conservative.

    Anyway I did indulge myself with a new toy –
    I’ve become a big fan of automatic knives because of the one hand opening and because we couldn’t own them when I lived in the People’s Republic of New Jersey. They’re still illegal in lots of the blue states and a (gasp) switchblade makes me feel like an outlaw – even though they’re legal here in Oklahoma.

    Merry Christmas to all. May God bless us everyone.

  6. I’m afraid that picture didn’t evoke the image you wanted here. Christmas is prime time for suicides, and this Christmas is likely to be a bad one.

  7. Could not do a purchase this year, but I did pull out my one Colt revolver, cleaned and oiled it, and spent some time thinking about its possible past use (in WW1 or WW2)

    I do need to get it to the range again but for now I’m concentrating on rimfire practice, not .45ACP.
