    Another new .45 on the forum!

    Here's my new toy that followed me home last Saturday. Taking it to the range next week (confound work schedule!). Any comments or holster suggestions? Partial to OWB since I need to lose a few pounds! A lot of new .45's on the site lately! Must be an infection going around

    Awesome little .45 dude. Love those grips. Is that going to be your main CCW? What are you currently carrying?

    Not a thing wrong with the Hornady's but I did also pick up a box of Winchester Supreme Elite Bonded PDX1 230 grain. Will that do?

    Thanks! I do plan on it becoming my main CCW soon, after a respectable break-in period. Right now, I'm usually carrying either my XD-45 compact or Taurus 85 ultralite .38 special. I do plan on getting some Crimson Trace Laser grips for the new baby!

    I like it!

    A nice pistol like that, needs a nice holster. I'm thinking about Pure Kustom

    The .45 bug is definitely going around. Let us know how it shoots. How much?

    Very nice. I traded for a 1911 a couple of months ago that had new crimson trace grips on it. The only time I have ever shot it using the laser was to sight it in. I keep the laser on all the time and shut off when shooting. I actually like the CT grips or I would have swapped them out.
    I like the CT, but for about the same money you can get a LCP.

    Bought it at a local gun dealer for $868. Been wanting one for awhile, so the price was good for me!
