I have done some homework on this gun and from what most people had to say they loved it. Well I found it at Davidson's Guns and almost considered buying it but I really wanted to give it a feel, see how well it fit my hand. I called all around town trying to find this thing so I could get a good look at it but had no such luck. I called Cabela's to see if they had one but they were too busy to answer the phone so I kinda put it out of my mind. Decided to go down there Friday night to get some boots and lo and behold there it was. I spent a good 30 minutes trying to decide if I wanted to pay that kind of price or not and ended up holding it a few times to help me make up my mind. Well, I never got the boots I wanted but I didn't make my trip for nothing. 925 dollars later I was walking out the door with a gun that I had wanted for some time now. This gun amazes me, I took it to the range at Impact Guns in Kearns Saturday morning and the next thing I knew I was actually shooting better than I ever had with any other handgun I've owned. I put 100 rounds through this thing, not one miss fire, not one jam, and it didn't matter how far out I was putting that target I was hitting it. I am very impressed with the way this gun handles, shoots, and carries. I can honestly say that it's the best money I've ever spent on a handgun in my life. I always thought I would be a Glock fan for life but no more. They are reliable I'll give em that, but they are not nearly as easy to handle or control as the Colt Defender. It has no night sights but I have found some online that I plan on ordering, I just need to find someone to install them. It is considered a compact 1911 .45 single action, it has a 3" barrel, and holds 7 + 1 in the chamber. I never thought I would settle for a gun that held only 7 or 8 rounds but with the accuracy this thing has, I feel confident that I don't need to carry that many rounds with me. It is very light and is much more concealable than my Glock, even fully loaded it weighs much less. I plan on taking this thing out to the range just about every weekend this winter to hone my skills, I'm not into skiing or any other snow related sports so at least I'll have something better to do with my time than sit around and be a couch potato... At least til spring, then it's back to fishing I go :D

Nice review.

Incidentally, your username has been changed to luckystrike per your request (I assume that's because you are no longer protected by a Glock).
lol. You assume correctly, Jeff. I guess I just came to realize why it is that my dad calls the Glock and other similar guns tinker toys.

luckystrike has actually been my screen name on many other forums, and seems to have become a very well know name around some peoples houses :shock: don't know why I just didn't go with it here.

Thanks again for the change, Jeff 8)

A buddy of mine got one of them a few weeks ago. I haven't gotten to shoot it yet, but just handling it I could tell it was a quality gun. If I had a grand to blow it might be my new toy.

Sweet gun! Looks like that handle is sort of beefy. Do you have large hands? Looks like it might fit my larger-sized hands pretty well.

I don't have small hands but I don't have large hands either, I'd say that I have medium sized hands. A friend of mine tried but it was obvious that his hands were too big to fit it. To better answer your question lets just say that a medium sized glove fits a little tight on my hands where as a large sits just a little loose. Don't know if that helps but maybe :)
