well guys i have to say i have a wonderful wife that likes to spoil me. She went and put a new toy on layaway for me. It is a brand-spanking new Smith and Wesson 1911PD with the CT grips. it has the 4 1/4" barrel. It sure is a beauty. Cant wait to get to play with it. Anyone have one of these? From what i have read heard only good things. If any of you got one let me know what you think.

I've been marrid for almost 28 years and my wife still....
Oh well - treasure and protect her...
Nice looking firearm and obviously a nice wife too. Congrats.

It looks great! How it shoots matters more than how it looks, ofcourse... But I realy like the color combination. The bi-tone is nice, and it looks to have all the xtras.
I think our wives should talk!
Dont own one but have shot one , Loved the pistol , Hated the grips . Not only are they tacky synthetic ( tacky enough to bother me ) but the lazer pod interferes with the high grip i use . Dammed accurate commander sized handgun imho tho that fed even junk reloads ( mixed bullet style and powder ect.. just dumped into a bag and mag loaded with what you pulled out ) when i shot it . Note that the accuracy impression comes from factory ammo , not the bag of reloaded crap that needed shot up lol .
