Was able to buy a 1902 Colt .45. I had looked for one for a long time. I bought it at a fair price in todays market. I could see where it would have better stopping power than the .38 S&W. Also even with a heavy double action trigger pull it would be fast to get into action in an ambush. Not in great shape but pretty good for 120 years old.

Way back in 1954, I saw one of those that had been copper-plated, sort of like bronzed baby shoes. The trigger guard had been cut away and the barrel cut back to about 2 inches. The asking price was $25 and it sat in Carter's gunshop for a long time.
