This afternoon, I went to the range to give a little workout to my Colt Detective Special that just returned from the factory. (I bought the gun used and it was badly out of time).
When finished, I browsed the gun shop as usual, and ---- lo and behold, there was a NIB, Colt 1911, .38 Super in the showcase!! The pistol is a 5" in 'polished' stainless steel!!! The price was unbelievable, so the gun now resides in my safe!! (I am a Colt 'nut' and get weak in the knees when I pick one up!!).
What say you about the viability of a 1911, .38 Super for a defense pistol?? 10 rds of 130grs. going nearly 1300fps intrigues me a lot!!!
Further --- What can you tell me about the Colt Custom Shop "El Cen" run of these pistols? Are they limited?? (They're certainly very nice!!)
