    New Handgun

    Traded a nice Browning shotgun for a 1911 this weekend. It's a Para Ord frame and slide, fresh back from Alex Hamilton's Ten Ring Precision with a new Crimson Trace.

    Outside it looks about like a Para. Inside it is pretty much an Alex Hamilton tricked out gun including a KART barrel. The bill from Hamilton was $766 and the reciept for the Crimson Trace shows $289. The work from Ten Ring is about 18 months old. This is a sweet shooting 45 and holds very tight groups with what little ammo I have ran through it at 25 yds. The gun has performed flawlessly so far with 200 rounds through it. The work from Alex Hamilton is very impressive to me, but I am not an expert in custom gun work.

    The best thing about the whole deal is that I got to meet another like minded individual that I plan on staying touch with. This was a win win situation and we are both happy with the deal.

    If someone will walk me through posting pics I will. All I do is type and check e-mail. Yep camera battery is still good.

    Should have a new holster and mag pouch that I order for my Colt in tomorrow that will work just fine for it. I have been carrying it today in a holster for a G22 that fits it pretty good. I just went to shoot it a little and took the Glock out and put the 1911 in rather than swapping holsters, works pretty good. Poor Glock, always a bridesmaid.
