I've used a lot of Solo 1000 in .38 Special and 45acp. Nowadays I use Titegroup or Promo for 45acp. In .44 Special I used to use Unique or Power Pistol, but I don't shoot that caliber anymore.

Thank you wccb. My only problem with the creases is appearance when I come home from a trip and put them back in the safe. But, it's certainly not a disqualifying problem, just an annoyance.

Bought a pristine Colt, from a co-worker needing cash, for $60 in 1965. Paid a gunsmith $35 to "accurize" it and used it in Bullseye competition for several years.
