Thanks! It was given to my Father when he was about 12 years old back in the 1940s. My family's former housekeeper had it and it had belonged to her husband who was a sea captain. It was loaded when she gave it to him. I think it was his first handgun. He used to shoot it back in the 1940s which would have been with regular smokeless 22 shorts and the gun is still nice and tight with a really good bore and chambers. I've shot it with CCI CB caps. It's a great little gun.
