I am a retired police chief and I have a CCW, but a C&B would never be approved for legitimate carry.
I like the old C&B pistols and have carried on during hiking trips and keep one in the trunk of the car when I travel.
Size doesn't really bother me, as I find the 5-1/2" .44 comfortable and even manageable.
Which would potentially make a better carry pistol????
The .36 caliber Colt Navy or the 1860 Colt Army????
Why would you choose or not choose either one???
Thanks for your input...
