    Addition

    Let's not forget the important issues of handgun "Balance & Pointability" - The "all steel" Combat Commander is extremely close to being absolutely perfect with regard to balance and natural fast pointability.
    Its just my opinion is that the all steel Commander has better overall natural balance than the Light Weight.

    I think that for all practical Carry function the Colt Alloy frame & the Steel frame are about equal in durability.
    That is one very tough light~weight~alloy that Colt uses for its light weight frames.

    With a holster as good as any G. Brommeland leather holster (in combination w/ a good gun carry belt) the slight extra weight of the full weight Commander should not be too much of an issue.

    Also: if you appreciate the look of "Gun Blue" remember that Alloy frames never look too very "Gunmetal Blue."
    Frosty Black maybe but, never Blue. Of course the "blue" that gunmakers use these days on steel does not look very "classic blue" either.

    I honestly like BOTH the Light Weight Commander & the Combat Commander. If I could not have one then I would choose the other.

    Don't for get me Chris I'll be working on you as well (waving several 500 Smiths and a couple of 460 Smiths at you)
    Don't forget, I'm working to find you a nice Mk IV Enfield in the Target Version. I can also wave a couple dozen SIGS, Styer SSGs, Cetme, Bushy, Rock Island, Armalites at you, as well as the large Kimber line of rifles and handguns in stock.
    Maybe even the Glocks and Springfield Armory too
    We'll bring you over to the Dark Side (evil grin)

    LOL......naaaaaaa... <boston accent> You'll be fine I'll just keep my eyes peeled for the Enfield you're looking for.
    Besides.. I'm not wealthy either, gotta watch my pennies also.
    I think I can find a good 1911 for Roadrunner
    I'll look into the showcases, and see what's there for him.
