The USP 45 is pretty dang big. I've got a USP Compact 40, have a great Vedder holster for it, but I rarely carry it. Too big and too wide. That all being said, the USP is such an outstanding...

That's about the only thing I could think of. You could continuously check Gunbroker.com for one, but you don't typically see a date of manufacture in the ads. You'd have to obtain the serial...

Nicely done. Your safety looks great. Actually, that safety came on all of the Colts, from before Series 70 to present. It's commonly referred to as the "teardrop" thumb safety. The more modern,...

Steve, conceptually I do agree with what you said, but I'm not totally wimpy. I'm 6'2'' and 185 lbs. Yes that is a bit on the slender side, but I'm scrappy. I can do several 12 ounce wrist curls...

You're exactly right. And to be honest, that's what I was suspecting also. The fact that it's a LW framed gun, it's naturally going to absorb some of the recoil pulse as opposed to an all steel gun...

I'm going to concentrate very hard on my grip today. If I have a malfunction I'm going to find the best shooter in the club, with the strongest grip, and have him shoot it. I will report back. ...

Interesting that you posted this. I have a new Wilson ULC, 5" gun. I was getting similar failures of the slide to return to battery. The pistol would fire a round or two and then stop. It was...

Nod, if you lay the gun on your nightstand at night for home defense, then I'd remove the sling before bed. If the ship goes down at 3am, you don't want to be grabbing the rifle and have the sling...

I've got one and I believe CA has one. It's a beautiful gun and I really don't care that it's a reproduction. In fact, I prefer it to my 1918 Colt Black Army. I'd sell the Colt before selling the...

It appears to also have a Harrison Retro Extreme thumb safety. In My humble opinion, that's the best thumb safety for carry out there.
