When it rains it pours 1902 Philippine Colt
« on: October 17, 2021, 12:39:31 AM »
Well, when it rains it pours. Over the last two weeks I received a 1892 rifle in 38-40, an H&R officers model that I bought a while back, bought an 1883 Artillery model issued to the 7th cav. in 1888 (needs a restoration), and tonight I did the deal on this 1902 Philippine Constabulary Colt double action.  I have been looking for a large frame double action colt (an 1878 or a 1902) for a while, but the prices have been on the rise and the cost was not  worth what was on offer.  But, this functional 1902 came up at a reasonable price so I snapped it up.  I need to stop looking at things for a while.

As another card carrying sworn Gunoholic, I am well aware there is no cure.  And "Resistance is Futile . . . You Will Be Assimilated."   And sooner than later.

Yeah, I have a Pavlovian response to a cool old gun at a good price.  I just can’t help myself.  The problem is that I am also an old car guy, am constantly looking to upgrade/ad to my shop tools, the wife and son want to eat and have a house to live in, and I would like to retire someday….

That's when you look your wife right in the eye and say "but honey, it was on sale!"

I am a lucky man.  My wife does not ask too many questions and never encourages me to get rid of anything. As long as there is money in the bank and the bills are paid, she is a happy woman. I tell her that she knew the job was dangerous when she took it.
