Nice collection. There is just something about the 3" fixed sight guns. All business.

Is that ammo the Federal 38G load? I had some with that shape of lead SWC-HP bullets. Some lots have a more normal SWC bullet shape, with the shoulder not so far forward.

Hey Texas Star. Those are Remington 158gr SWCHP; their version of the FBI load.

Nice Model 13's!

But I think the Model 13 in cocobolo is a redhead.

I struggled with that too. Let's settle on "auburn".

I'd have to say those are my favorite but it is close. With a variety of M13s, it was simple to have those with the cocobolas.

For my M19, I chose the target stocks but really struggled in the decision for the type of wood. I settled on the dark reddish cocobolas. They look great on that gun but if I get another M19 I can get the fiddleback maples for that as well.

Who made the Cocobolo Targets? I think I need a set of those.

Nice gathering of three-inchers! I have been hooked since long before the prices went totally insane, and have several.
