Happy Blogiversary to you!

Keads just celebrated his second blogiversary with a picture of an old Colt Police Positive in .32-20, which is a really cool caliber.

My .32 WCF revolver is nowhere near as pretty, but at least the cylinder turns the right way. ;)

ah, the .32-20, one of my very fave calibers. i have an old Colt Army Special built in the "19 teens" or thereabouts and still in pretty good shape. loading for it is a pita but shooting it is all kinds of fun.

Yep, there are a LOT of them out there, and we're just going to have to agree to disagree on which one turns the RIGHT way...LOL

Keads said...

Thanks Tam! Oh, the new S&W .38 Bodyguard turns the wrong way too =0

Keads,

Too soon. I'm still in mourning. :p

Errmmm ... Rollin's patent bored through cylinders turned the wrong way to avoid confusion with prior work by the gentlemen at Colt.

I see by your cite that in 2007 you wrote: "These days even a wretched late 1930s .32-20 Hand Ejector that looks like it's been dragged behind a truck will command a price above a C-note...".

For anyone knowing the current asking prices of these wheelers, that entry in your Book of the Smith constitutes an excellent brief essay on the planned obsolescnce of the American dollar.

(I suppose you'll want to argue it also represents growing recognition of the inherent superiority of other-way revolvers. Okay by me. It's a free country.)

Jim,

Let's just say that I'm glad I invested in Smith & Wessons and not SWHC. ;)
