Captain Skyy buys an Eclipse.

My friend the captain took it upon himself Monday evening and bought himself a new Eclipse Custom II 45 online from GB.

I have never owned a Kimber with a 5 inch barrel or that was all steel and if I say so myself it feels soooooooooo good in my hands....

I see a range day coming real soon...

No I would not allow that. Your new baby, you throw the first round down range while I wait anxiously to take the next round!
