    Adventurer

    Here's a picture of my new to me C&S Adventurer. In addition to the regular adventurer package it has a titanium frame, front night sight, checkered front-strap, a beaver tail, and black t finish. I just love it. It is surprisingly comfortable to shoot, even with +P loads, not feeling at all like a 3 inch 45.

    nice. how handy is the P1D? I've been looking at them but think I'll go with the P3D for the click switch rather than rotate bevel of the P1D.

    Thoughts?

    Oh, and I like the HAK too.

    I need to check out the P3D. Is it as small as the P1D? The rotating bevel is the only thing that I am not crazy about the P1D. I have to say that the P1d in a GREAT light. On its highest setting it produces 130 lumens! (For those who do not know, a 2 cell surefire with a turbo lamp only produces 120.) And the strobe setting can induce seizures!
    Back to the gun. You have to shoot it to believe how well it handles. I'll try and put together a proper range report next time I go. Let's just put it this way. I comfortably put 10 +P rounds into a CD sized target at 30 feet and that is more than enough for me. (I'm sure that a LOT better could be done by someone who knows what they are doing.)

    Is that any smaller than any other 3" 1911? It looks smaller in that picture.

    Even though I have officially SWORN off any 1911 with a sub 4.25" barrel, I'd have to make a SINGLE exception for this gun. Reason being I know one of the gunsmiths employed by Laughridge, personally. He used to shoot with my IDPA Club prior to moving out to work for C & S. Next, the guarantee on this gun is the next best thing to a 100% ironclad guarantee against failure. The sub 4" 1911's I've owned in the past from various name brands (Para & S.A.) have each been a POS. I'd trust my life to a Laughridge creation. I doubt I'll ever be able to afford one, anyway.

    Yes it is smaller. The grip is cut down to the point that the mag only holds either 5 or 6 rounds. (The C&S mag holds 5 but some 6 round mags only stick out a drop.)
    As for the guy with big hands, I have rather large hands and I can only fit two fingers on the grip but it still does the job. I think that the high cut grip makes all the differance.
    Thank you all for the kind words!

    It was never mentioned but...what does a beast like that cost ? The website only mentioned it was sold, but listed no price.
    Yes I know I'm nosey.
