Retro Sunday- Colt's 150th Birthday

The talented wordsmith Brigid suggested I do some Retro Sundays with old firearm and ammo ads. Thanks B.! I did it last week with a 1962 edition of The American Rifleman. This week I present the Colt American Handgunning magazine from 1986. Let's get started (click pic to enlarge):

So far so good! Any Python fans out there?

I know at least two fans of this weapon, B. and Fatal Abstraction. Oh and me! Here is another blast from the past.The Mustang .380. There are several around and they all work once you understand the proper method of operation. A careless operator will kick up the safety after a shot with an improper grip. Warning! Do not disassemble the lower if you can avoid it! Things will fly around with reckless abandon if you do not know what you are doing!

Another Python ad:

I hope everyone has a great week! Blogging will probably slow up, back to teach two IT classes starting this week. 16 weeks of "Yes the book is technically correct, but does not cover what to do when the CEO calls because he cannot get online to check his stock portfolio or when accounting says they cannot print invoices. Here is how it really works." 

Stay safe!
