Default Re: Older Scottish beauties

Paul, I have several old pictures of my ancestors from the 1800's. I'm not positive about the caliber of the old Colt Lightning he is holding. From what I've "heard" it was a 38 caliber. It was a large frame model & was possibly a 38/56 or 38/55. I suppose since there was still, deer, bear & other big game around plus certain other people that wanted to kill him he felt the need for a powerful gun with a lot of firepower. One fellow walked for miles to kill him. He should have just forgot it & stayed home. ......Paul H
