New Colt Cobras

Saw a recent magazine review of a new model Cobra called the Colt Special Cobra. Thanks to the rounded grips, it looks like the older Detective Specials, Cobras and Agents. It appears to be stainless...

The second one to appear on Gunbroker sold last night for the Buy Now price, which was $900 over the MSRP. Some people are nuts, either that or they took Shopping 101 with my wife. :)

Reminds me of the 25 boxes of American Eagle 9mm I saw in my gunstore yesterday for $39.95 a box. To quote Dwight Yoakam, "I ain't that lonely yet".

I would just say that Colt quality is not as consistent as Dan Wesson's, of course, Colt has been at it a lot longer, giving more opportunity for variation. I've seen and own some nice Colts but I've...

I handled a threaded 9mm Vigil at my LGS today. I have always been a DW fan since buying my 9mm Guardian. I also had a CCO in .45 before foolishly selling it but it was a carry gun and I don't use my...

Can't tell you how many forum threads and magazine articles I've seen, that referred to the Springfield 911 and my brain read "1911". Wish they had named it something else. :confused:
