I have a couple, but the Colt New Service in this photo is my favorite. It dates to 1916 and began life as a .455 Ely. Somewhere along the way, it was rechambered to .45 Colt, and belonged to someone in our own navy. The inside of one of the panels is marked, "Harrelson, R.L. USN". It's my only handgun with stag stocks.

Since the collector value was gone, I had the barrel cut to 2.50". I just love snubbies!
