Before There Were Carjackings...

Before there were carjackings, there were auto bandits and thieves. To protect oneself against bandits and thieves, you needed a Colt. Not just any Colt but the Colt Pocket Hammerless Pistol Model 1903 (.32 ACP) or Model 1908 (.380) According to the ad below, it was essential motoring equipment.

I found this wonderful old advertisement on Tumblr where it had been posted by Bubble Head Gun Nut.


  1. I wish they'd bring that back with modern steel. What a sweet, slim gun.

  2. Actually somebody has... Cylinder and Slide (Bill Laughridge) is building them again. However they ARE pricey!!!

    1. @Old NFO: Thanks for that update on the Model 1903/1908.
