Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Got a chance to shoot this last weekend. The sights are virtually non-existent, but it was a joy to shoot and I'll definitely be giving it another go sometime soon, possibly again this coming weekend.

Wow that really is a beauty... You know in my youth I would look down on those little Colt 25 autos, Peter Lorre carried one and got the snot smacked out of him when he pulled it.. Or ladies would pack these...

But that is just slick

But as one ages one realizes how nice those little beauties are.. And after all they were powerful enough to protect you in Bear country .. So the ads say

Not that Colt would lie, but I sure as heck would not pack yours in Bear country.. Its to darn pretty and the bear may
hurt it as he eats you.

Very nice - love those pocket pistols - especially when it's a desirable brand.
