    inherited my grandmother's 1903 Colt hammerless. I asked my husband to pick me up some 32 ammo, but forgot to mention the acp detail. He bought me 32 Remington UMC, center fire, fmj. Does it matter that they aren't marked "ACP"? Is this just a stupid question? Still like to know, though. My...

  9. Best First Handgun?

    General Gun Discussion
    I know I'm only 18 but I still want to know what my first handgun should be when I can get one. I don't want a run-of-the-mill M1911 or M9. Something with a bit more character as a first handgun. Something unique and uncommon. I've put down a couple handguns that really caught my eye for one...

    Shooting Reports
    Well, I decided it would be a good day to go to the ole firing range on the family farm. Just finishing up my last semester of summer classes at college, firing off some rounds at some used textbooks that the bookstore would not take back, gave me some much needed satisfaction. First up on the...
  14. 1903 Colt .32 Type I

    Collectors Corner
    Ok, so I inherited my great grandfather's 1903 Colt .32, and I love the little gun. It has definitely been used quite a bit in it's existence, worn and faded, scratched, carried, and loved. The only thing that I could possibly wish to replace on this weapon is the barrel. It has become pitted...

    General Gun Discussion
    Was cleaning my pistol last tuesday after coming back from the range, and had a few friends over. Well, apparently one of them thought I and they would get a good kick out of putting a empty bullet casing (shell) into the chamber and closing it. Now it seems I can't get it nor can I even pull...
