Another reason the hobby has gown stale is that none of the new wonder-guns excites me.Everything is a mutant clone of something else; nothing under the sun is new. It was among the first of the many pistols I truly lusted after but it was a purchase that, over the years, I kept pushing away in favor of something else.None has any elegance; they are all plain and ugly. When I first fired one, it was like holding magic in my hand, it had 9MM recoil in a full size 1911A1 frame.After that initiation, I would borrow or rent a range owned .38 Super Colt 1911A1 whenever I had the chance.The original short grips on my Agent were far too small for my hand; there was no way I could shoot the revolver comfortably or accurately.I substituted a smooth set of walnut Cobra style grips, further enhanced by adding a is my preferred carry for the Colt Agent.Do I believe the .38 Super to be superior to the 9X19MM P loads?If I ignore those wonderfully edgy loads, I would have to say they are pretty much equal.
Sadly, Colt no longer makes any of the aforementioned revolvers.
A quality pocket holster will keep your gun positioned where you want it and protect the trigger from an itchy finger.
Negligently lighting off a round in your trousers could profoundly alter your future.
This pistol may well be the last gun I ever purchase. We all know how expensive gun collecting and recreational shooting can be.
Whether you shoot them or not, guns need periodic maintenance and proper storage.
