Took my 98-year-old 'friend' here to the range today.
I've always liked the way this gun handles wadcutters, and its accuracy is second to none.
Figured it deserved a new photo, so here goes...

Excellent! Looks pretty dang nice for being almost a century old!

It's amazing to me how well these 'toys' of ours perform when they're often times older than we are..

The 1903 target..
you know i always thought of them as just another old gun... the didn't really excite me.. kinda plain.. not a magnum , no heavy barrel, no huge bullets , no super loud boom...
Untill....i got the chance to actually hold one.. the way it ballanced in my hands.....the smoothness of the action. not to mention the fit and finish..then finally being able to shoot one,, (thanks Jack )
yes , you can call it lust...but i just had to have one... anything nice was way out of my price range..
but i did finally find one..a beaten and battered old girl..neglected to sitting in a display case,traveling from show to show overlooked for something newer, bigger or even "gasp" plastic..
anyhow i'm rambeling....needless to say, Now i have one..she fixed up kinda nice and yes you can tell she's one of my favorites..
also from the same vintage as Don's, 1911..
put's me in good company now doesn't it.... :D

Was offered this tonight...



Barrel serials to the frame & cylinder, has forged base for blade.... I understand the gun has been examined and verified by Roy Jinks..... No letter at this time however....



The current owner is going to keep the Keith Brown K-Ropers....

Looks like more Ramen for me.....

Drew,
I much prefer the 'chicken flavor' to the 'beef' or 'oriental style'.
:lol:

Drew, Just a suggestion. Forget the Ramen Noodles!!!! :roll: ......move up to the Knorr-Lipton Teriyaki Noodles. Easy to fix in a (1) sauce pan, just follow the directions. It's a great side with Chicken Tenders. ;) I make it once a week. Dinner is served.....when Donna walks in the door! :D Bob

There's enough left over for a midnight snack, too! ;)

Hmmmm Bob.... That sound's interesting... are they $0.19 a pack like Ramen? ;)

If not, I'll have to wait for my Tax Refund check so I can splurge a little..... :roll:

I tried to get Barb and the dogs to go that route so I could get a new 1911 but they were having no part of it. We stopped to get dog food and the stuff Barbara bought was $3.00 a box and I thought we could get something cheaper 'cause thats what,,, $21.00 in dog money

Not really, Drew. :roll: More like $1.20/pkg......at Walmart. They've also got a large bunch of flavor selections. The Cajun Rice and Red Beans, Spanish Rice, among them. (I add spices or salsa.) All are easy to make......for you lonely single guys and taste great too!!!! (You can also make it when out ice, fishing, for a real treat!!! ;) ) Remember......I was single for a long time,too.....thru my 20's. So, I learned to make good food for myself. (It will impress the chicks, too!!!! :twisted: )

Even with the economic turn down, in your line of business, you can easily afford it!!! :lol: It's worth it, to have a good meal under your belt!!! ;) You won't regret trying them!!! :) Bob
