    so what's the ETA on your custom Fusion?
    Been 12 weeks and two days since order was placed. Estimated (quoted) time left is roughly 11 weeks and 5 days. At least I have something to pass the time...

    Thanks for that info OD. This thing feels so incredibly light compared to what I normally carry (457 or G29). My biggest issue is whether or not to shoot it! Wait. Shoot yes but carry....hmmm.

    be greatful deadguy....thats a heck of a nice find.

    long time ago i had similar, i say similar cause--though it was the shop owners gun, we could not get it to run proper.
    and as i wanted it as a carry gun, i was sad. than along came the Defender a few years later and i was happy.

    it is still on my short list of hand guns i am wanting.

    enjoy !!

    Beautiful! I drooled on one just like it in a hardware store back home, many times, when I was too young to buy it. However, the web of my right hand almost starts bleeding, just looking at it. Next to unmodified Browning Hi-Powers, no handgun bites me as badly as do those old Commanders.

    That's like marrying Christie Brinkley and saying she's too pretty to..., well, just carry it anyway.
