Hi, yes I know it's a year. Came across this forum and since I am new to the 45's I figured I'm never too old to learn. Briefly my Father was a Navy veteran from WWII and many years ago the wife and I bought him a U.S. Historical Society limited edition of the famous Colt 45 auto. It is the Battle of Midway, Coral sea edition with gold inlay for the engraving and lettering. We lost Dad and I inherited this beautiful piece. I am going to learn more about them and want to get a normal one which I can shoot regularly as well as modify. I hope to purchase one after we leave Illinois and become settled in Texas. I hope I can continue to get the great advice I have seen in the past year from everyone. Thanks!
