I have a lot, but my two favorites are my nickel plated 7 1/2 " Colt SAA second generation. I fire it on my birthday with reduced (Cowboy) ammunition. It's just too good looking to knock around with. It looks more like jewelry than a gun. When I heft and cock it, the familiar click,click,click,click, (Colt) brings to mind the frontier, and one of Custers's 7th Cavalry Troopers pulling back the hammer. My other favorite is a Model 1917 .45 Hand Ejector that was shipped to Brazil in 1935, and then returned to the US in 1980 something. I bought it for $125.00. After I cleaned the gunk out of it, it fires like a champ. It's just a pain getting the empty shells out of the half and full moon clips. It's over three quarters of a century old, but I would definitely not feel under armed with it. The half and full moon clips are great speed loaders, and that 230 Grain ball will definitely get your attention.
