    Have had a few guns in my time, but i've got to agree 100% with gp. The Colt will scar with a fingernail...shoots excellent...but Law'd a'mercy fella's need to be a leetle tougher...:(

    Yep I know it’s a hard one to swallow ,and you probably thought I was nuts after reading it so many times

    Sorry you had to experience it ,to make it more believable


    you might keep this one ,but i bet you have second thoughts about forking out that kinda cash for another one
