Hello all! From Tucson, AZ
« on: May 03, 2016, 08:59:28 PM »
This is my first post to introduce myself. I am a collector of authentic antique Colt percussion pistols. I own a few, such as a 1848 Baby Dragoon that was made in 1847, a 1849 Pocket made in 1868, and a few others. This has quickly turned into a passion of mine, but at considerable expense. I hope to continue my collecting of Colt antique firearms of that era in history. There is so much to learn and collect. I have specialized in collecting Colt Pocket revolvers.

PS It looks like I need to answer a series of validation questions for each post. Ineresting.

Welcome, Bob!
Glad to have you join us.
No, you should NOT have to answer the validation questions which each post, or ever again. Are you using a phone? If so, try logging in from a PC or notebook. You may have to try clearing your browser. Another member just experienced the same thing and that fixed it.

Welcome to the forum, Bob.

Grab a chair and get yourself some coffee.  When you are comfortable, join a conversation or start one of your own.  Many of us have or have had originals but mostly we are replica folks.  But we love to see and hear about originals.
