So the question was asked of me… Why do I prefer a S&W to a Colt.
Let’s be honest, Colt makes some fine shooting irons. No question. I absolutely LOVE the feel of an old SAA (top R) in my hand. It just has a feel that you don’t get with any other gun. My issue is with Colt’s double-action revolvers (I.E. the Colt Anaconda (top L)). I just don’t like the “pull-back” cylinder release. That’s it. No other significant reason. I prefer a revolver with the “push forward” cylinder release like the S&W 629 (bottom center). To me it’s faster, more ergonomic, and more logical.
For my die-hard Colt fans out there… It’s cool, bro! No disrespect. Just personal preference.
Knowing that your attacker doesn’t know you have a CCW, a .45 at your side, and enough training under your belt to shave the ass-hair off a flea with open sights at 100 yards in one shot.
I’m pretty sure the “Conservatives” of Washington’s time supported the Monarchy.
You need to go read the Federalists papers son. Classical liberalism was the foundation of today’s modern conservatism and libertarianism. John Locke, Thomas Hobbes, Montesquieu, and Adam Smith were all inspirations to the Founders. Jeffersonian Democrats opposed the Federalist Party which was more in tone of the old British monarchy system. The Whig Party later formed as a hybrid of both of these parties and was considered one of the first conservative parties.
