Tough Decision: but the winner is....

New Colt Defender
After nearly 2 years of research reading reviews of the good and bad of several brands of ultra compact 45s; I finally pulled the trigger on one of the top three contenders. The number one factor in my decision was out of the box and continued reliability. It sure wasn't the prettiest of all it's contemporaries but I'm not out to impress any bad guys who have nefarious intentions.
However in a couple of days I will be receiving Crimson Trace Rosewood Master Series laser grips that might dress it up a little bit.

The thing is so dark I just can't get a good picture of it. I should send it off to Chattanooga Phil he does excellent photo shots.

Nice looking "pocket warmer" ya got there Kid. I picked up a Colt Competition Model, 9mm, a few months ago. Not much of carry gun but has been great on the range. I hope to shoot it in some USPSA matches next summer. Colts really seem to hold their value.
