A buddy had an unfired Dick Special that his mom bought in '76.
He was not a gun guy, but he owns some businesses (bar, apartment buildings), and was interested in learning to shoot.
I was trying to get the gun from him - I would have bought him a Glock, and taught him to shoot it, in exchange for the Colt - but he had an emotional attachment to the snubby.
In a "you don't want to meet your heroes" moment, I was very underwhelmed by the Colt's DA trigger. It was heavy, not especially smooth, and had a sort of unpredictable release that made it hard to shoot.
We put 50 rounds through it, and I should have applied some more, "Gee, you don't want to struggle with that trigger" pressure, but he still has the gun.
Runs off at the mouth about anything 1911 related on this site and half the time is flat out wrong.
