To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women
Check out the STI Ranger (Commander size). I've had on for a couple of months and it is quality. I plan to work it into my carry rotation after I wring it out a bit.
Chose a weapon that goes bang EVERY time!
My suggestion is Sig C3 or RCS (CCO style or commander slide on officer fram) depending on if you want all nitron or two tone and your thoughts on a carry melt. They also made an all stainless version but that one's hard to find, and they are supposedly coming out with another CCO in their "traditional" series which is supposed to be out this year sometime. Lots of features for under a grand.
