    I don't supposed you'd want to sell one for a 25% profit would you? (j/k)

    80,000 rounds. That is a testimonial for sure. I don't shoot my Delta as much as I use to. I don't think I'll ever put that many thru it even if I were.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    My experience

    I've had a Delta Gold Cup for about 12 years, and it has held up quite well. It is one of my most accurate guns. I buy ammo in bulk from Georgia Arms - I paid $20 per 50 for my last buy.

    I think that's what I had, a Delta Gold Cup, but mine was blued. Beautiful gun. I had bought it and a 45 ACP Gold Cup and decided to trade the Delta. I think I traded the right one though that Delta was a sweet shooter. I also have a S&W 1006 so that's another reason the Delta lost out. At the time I liked the DA/SA on the 1006. If I had to choose today I think the Delta would win over the 1006. I think it's considerably lighter, if memory serves me, which it usually doesn't. I liked shooting full power back in my youth and I thought the 1006 would endure better. Plus the FBI had selected it as their carry gun back then. As soon as they started paying days off for bad backs they looked for something lighter and the 40 S&W was born. I don't remember what I paid back then but it's probably half of what they go for today.

    Yes....still have mine....however when I want 10mm, I shoot the G20 a lot more often. My Elite has about 8,000 rounds through it and I just pretty much keep it in the safe. Not that it is not an excellent weapon.....I just like the G20 better.
