Samuel Colt's 206th Birthday

It's hard to imagine one person will ever have the same impact on technology as Samuel Colt, let alone firearms. (Maybe the guy who invents a practical laser gun will count, but there's no way it won't actually be a team of white coats working in a bunker somewhere that comes up with that.)

Our own Molly Carter wrote a bio about Colt, inventor of the great equalizer – Sam Colt: The Forgotten History of America's Legendary Firearms Inventor and Manufacturer.

Or check out our podcast about Sam Colt if you're need your eyes for something else!

Sam did good, no doubt about it, but I'm partial to many of the works of John Moses Browning myself, but I've always lusted after a nice SAA 45LC.
Does only telling little white lies make me a racist?

El Patron Competition model by Uberti in .45 won't be sorry, they come factory trued & tuned, & with the Wolff spring kit already installed.
I have a matched set of 5.5" stainless in .45 & .357.....both will likely be buried with me.
