Recently picked these Colt pistols up.
The Pocket Hammerless has always favorite of mine. It always seems so well balanced.
I saw several post here on Louder Than Words regarding the Colt 1903.
It seems the 1903 is well liked here.

Colt 1903 Pocket Hammerless, .32acp, type 1.
Manufactured 1905.

1903's and 1908's are some some cool all around pistols. I am waiting for the right deal to come along on a 1908.

Recently, I was lucky enough to find this Colt 1908, .380 acp.
Finding extra magazines is another story, and when you do locate one, the prices are outragous.

Bocephus...you might check with Bob's Gun Shop in Royal, AR. He advertises that he has the magazines for this for $30 in blued (It is mistakenly advertised as a 1903 Magazine #9 under Colt Magazines.) This gentleman has been very helpful to me in the past and is very easy to deal with. He normally keeps a lot of old parts (in very good shape usually) for many obscure firearms. Give him a call or an e-mail, I think you'll be happy you did!! Here is his website: http://www.gun-parts.com/magazines/

Guys-- just be careful when carrying these, they are not necessarily as drop-safe as other designs. An associate recently was carrying one apparently Mexican-style. Went to tie his shoe, it fell out, fired, and killed him. I know that holsterless carry and an antique .32 may not sound like it but this guy was a real gun-guy and knew his stuff. It can happen to anyone, so just take care that familiarity does not breed contempt with regards to safety.

Thanks for the heads up, Ned. I've been known to carry mine in my pocket. Some times of year I get to spend a few days in a row
climbing up and down on a tractor all day. Carrying in the pocket sure keeps the little gun out of the way and protected.

Caution duly noted!

Thanks,

-Matt
