I've got a Colt 45 (pictured) that my Dad passed down to me.
I would love to know the full story behind this gun. My step grandpa passed it down to my dad saying that he wanted my dad to have it because it meant a lot to him, and my step-grandpa said that he knew my dad would take care of it. He also said that if his own biological kids got it, they'd sell it.
But story is that my step-grandpa pulled this off of a Japanese soldier during the Pacific War in WWII. What makes it more odd and unique, these weren't standard issue for any Japanese soldiers, nor were they standard issue for any American soldier. So the thought is that that Japanese soldier may have pulled it off of an American soldier during a prior war.
I've been told that if it was a US Military issue, it should have a stamp on it somewhere specific. When I looked, it did not have that stamp. I also have the full documentation for it, stating what it is and that my grandpa could bring it back.
Personally, I have a Colt Mustang, Beretta 96A1, Ruger LC9, Remington 798 30-06, Winchester 101, and I think a Sears Pump action.

Added over 4 years ago: Correction. Instead of a Sears Pump-action, it's a JC Higgins.

Quoted from way2wyrd:

Heres one I dont shoot anymore.

Speaking of not shooting anymore. My uncle has a tiny .22 revolver. He said he'll never shoot that anymore. Said the gun is so light, it's like shooting the .22 shell directly from your hand. I kinda wanted to try it myself, but figured I could take his word on it.

Quoted from Astropin:

me with my Springfield Target with a red dot:

I put a 600 yard scope on my 30-06. My dad called that "cheating." I believe he'd probably say the same thing for this.

Quoted from tomdotcom:

4" targets, about 6foot high. AR500, made for 22's...

Nice! Looks good enough to sell. Bought my dad one of those from Gander Mt. Said it was for .22's, but seems a bit stiff. Didn't always register when hit.

Anyone have any experience with places milling a sight onto a gun? I've got a Colt Mustang Pocketlite, but the front sight is CNC'd with the slide. The rear sight is a dovetail sight. Just curious if I want to go through the trouble and money to have someone add a dovetail to the front sight.

Quoted from Fulltilt:

Great little gun. Personally with a small pocket gun and the likely distance to target (pretty darn close), I'd leave the front sight as-is.
My pocket carry is the similar P938. Although it has a dove tailed front sight, I've not yet found the need to adjust it.

Was my thought too. Just noticed that when I go to the shooting range, the front sight is sometimes hard to pick up right away, since there's nothing that stands out as a dot on it. Just a flat-grey notch.

I like that SIG too. My brother-in-law has one of those too. It's nice that the mags are all interchangeable between the Colt, Sig, and Kimber. I considered all 3 before getting my Colt. I ultimately wanted the Kimber because it was more 1911-ish than the Colt, but the dealer was currently sold out. So went with the Colt instead. It's nice. I like it better than my Ruger LC-9.
