love wad cutters , fun thing with wad cutters is you can run them slower than 700fps getting recoil way down.1912 M06 Colt Police Positive .38 special, late (late) of the Westchester Co. NY Sheriff’s office.
This model was called the “Positive” in that unlike its predecessors, it would not discharge if dropped when cocked.
50F, overcast, windy, damp like snow was coming. Ammo was Federal Champion match 148gr wadcutters doing 770fps and 208 ft/lbs. Although a “weak” load, there is a heavy recoil with the small grip and light frame. Always fun to shoot. A nice carry gun, but the large front sight hangs up in the holster.
12 rounds each target. Wadcutters do leave nice round holes.

Finally found a shoulder rig that fits and is comfortable. Had to get it all the way from Russia. Only issue is that I have to wear it upside down as I am a lefty. Holsters were reversible, however
Interesting. Do you have a link for that? I need a holster for my 1903...
Paul owner of Warbird Leather makes some nice holsters for the 1903. I hate to link to another forum but we won't find him here on NES.
His username is 'colt hammerless'.
This is his thread.
Have some holsters for sale. Many are new listings, and some are from my previous ad. All fit a 1.5" wide belt. I cannot ship anything with elephant skin to CA, OR, or WA. I also cannot ship shark skin to OR. Prices are plus shipping. You can private message me here on the forum, or...forums.1911forum.com
