    Pulled the Trigger on The Mexican!

    Reading through another thread G-Man dropped a little nugget about a LW Commander in .38 Super he saw at Budís. That particular gun has been on my wish list for a while now so I made a phone call.

    The young lady who I spoke with pulled it out of the case and told me it was in very good shape, I asked a few questions about scratches and such - thereís a couple but slight. Sounded like a nice deal as the price was well under anything else Iíd seen online, I asked about return policy and agreed to the terms and told her to send it over!

    Got it yesterday and I was just a bit surprised! What she didnít tell me was itís a TALO edition! Has the Novak sites, upgraded trigger, and so forth. The real surprise is itís the Army TALO edition, did not expect it to be green! I didnít even think to ask for a photo, I expected it to be like the rest of the LW guns and have a blue slide and aluminum frame. I was close, it has a blue slide!

    It wasnít a safe queen but whoever had it before took care of it and did a really good job cleaning it up, not a speck of dirt to be seen.
    Overall Iím very happy with the gun and Buds. SGAmmo delivered today so should be able to do a range report this weekend.

    Yep. When I went and looked at the Colt area of the display that day, all they had left was 2 Defenders in 45 Auto; one used and one new.

    Sister has a .45 Defender. Nice little gun, need to make sure it was the mags that were the feed issue. Just haven't made it to the range but maybe this weekend.

    I fired a used Defender they had and it was flawless for me; 45 auto.

    Im pretty sure a LW 1911 of that Genre is what the wife will choose Saturday when we go to test drive a few, although she might surprise me and go with one of the mini 1911ís.

    The manual safety is important to her and the 1911 design fits her hand better than anything else.

    Sister likes the big bang and fire shootin out the barrel! She's a recoil junkie!

    @CWOUSCG Is Sister going to let you keep that new little Chiquita?
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    I think that you will like the Super .38 a lot @CWOUSCG . If you have never shot one before, they are sweet. I'm sure that this Colt LW will be fantastic, but you might want to have the frame fixed as I don't know about a Chief using a green one. I do think that the grips and frame are very nice touches to the overall appearance of this one.

    CWO, thatís the probably the wisest choice youíve made since marrying Sister. I think youíll quickly learn to love it. If Iím wrong and you donít really feel it, let me know.

    I want a range report!

    CWOUSCG, what makes this "Mexican"? I've read your post twice and don't understand why it's called that? Do you drink margaritas after shooting it?

    Sweet looking pistol.
    I bet the green color looks nice on it.
    I have a Sig Scorpion with the army green color. It grows on you.

    Extremely popular cartridge south of the boarder, since they can't own "Military" calibers.
