Back to the Colt Firearms collection after one day to honor the University of Connecticut women's basketball team.
This pistol was made in 1965. It is based on a 1911 model. The sign to the right of this pistol describes the ornamentation and indicates that it was presented to the President of the Colt Military Division. (Click on the photo to enlarge it and read the sign.)
Even though some categories of weapons are banned for purchase in Connecticut, those same weapons may lawfully be purchased in nearly all other states. And, even if more extensive restrictions are adopted, there will always be weapons produced for the military, for law enforcement, for hunters, and for individuals who choose to own whatever weapons continue to be legal for citizens to own.
Where are many of those weapons currently made? Connecticut.
