    SP with some Badgers

    Thanks guys. I did not have the pin installed. I was able to corretct the problem by loosening the grip screw, aligning the two halves, and tighening the screw again. Everything seems fine now.

    Colt Python?

    I had two. Shot them both and then sold them for a song. I was too young to realize what I had.
