I picked up the 1916-made Colt 1911 from a friend who moved to Oz and sold his collection.
The Colt 1908 Vest Pocket .25 ACP is a 1919 year, and was acquired recently is a low bid from Rock Island Auction in April.
The 1911 holster is an original RIA dated 1913. The 5 rds of ammo shown with it are stamped "FA 11 11" and "FA 11 12" (Made Nov 1911 and Dec 1911)

I don't have any safe queens, no virgins. These get exercised once a month however I am using a High Standard (HS) barrel from 1945 for the Colt 1911 as the original "P over H" barrel has some light frosting and no sense in taking a chance with it.

Very nice, Mac. I don't have one of the 1908 .25s but have a 1908 .380 Pocket Hammerless to go with my .45. Have yo see if I can get a pic or two up with weekend. Hate to say it, especially on the CAS City board, but not all the old Colts were revolvers. Smiley

That being said, I have a number of SA's, a number of DA's (1878, 1901, 1902, 1909, 1917 and other New Service) and a few autos (1903, 1908, and 1911s) and thoroughly enjoy shooting each and every one of them.  Grin

Nice! A Colt Army in .45 is on my wish list. Hopefully next spring.

Thank you gentlemen!
Another photo I set up.
Grandpa when serving as an Army Airman in WW1, along with postcards from Kelly Field that he wrote on the back of each one.
A Spitfire compass (I know they didn't have spitfires in WW1..  ) and my Colt 1911 made in 1916.
All sitting on top of a B-17 Pilot's Album book.

The "Jenny" is what Grandpa trained in. The war ended before he was deployed overseas so he returned home after service, saved up his money working and went to college at Nebraska and played for the Cornhuskers from 1922-1924. In 1923 they beat Knute Rockne and the Fighting Irish in 1923, 14-7 and again in 1925 17-0. My grandfather was an "End" (That's what they called Tight Ends before they started chucking the ball downfield)
