Default Here's Johnny!

Well every since getting my first Colt 1911 I've gotten into a habit of naming them after the gangsters of the era. Bonnie was the first one, but she had to go, so I'll need to get her back. Then Clyde which is my EDC. And now, John Dillinger (aka Johnny), one I've been longing for. A 72B or prior Colt 1911. Lucking out I found this one still new in the box at the dealer that got it from Colt. A legitimate virgin! I could not believe my luck and I grabbed it up as fast as I could.

That is a beautiful pistol. I'd stay with the white grips. Makes that blueing pop.

Shoot it! Shoot the shit out of it or it's an investment piece and not a handgun! Reminds me of a friend who had a Gold Cup. Careful racking it..., he said, I want to keep scratching to a minimum. That's like a beautiful woman who never got laid. Sad, man. But all my pistols are worn and scratched like a Mossberg 500. Maybe I'm just a goober, but something that beautiful has to be carried, shot and enjoyed.
