As I stood there at the counter I caught a glimpse of it. It was next to it's bigger brother, there they sit, one full size and one commander model. I must have stood there for about 4 minutes and a young salesman with ear-studs comes out of the back room and walks straight to me. He asked me if I needed any help, and I said yes, I would like to look at this 1911 commander model. He took the 1911 out and handed to me and it felt like I was holding perfection. You know the feeling when you hold a pistol in your hand and just know, this is perfect. This 1911 was well balanced, slide glided as if it was riding on butter, and the tolerances were tight, there was nothing loose on this gun and looked better in person than on a computer. I took a look at the price tag and chuckled. I said to the young salesman, can you do better on this price. I do my research and know what I can get it for at other stores. I told him I can get it for this price, with shipping and taxes from this place, can you beat it. Hell, even gave him the sites the store uses for their distributors and a secret connection I have. The next words out of his mouth were, how do you plan on paying for it. I said CASH!!!! Well after two trips back to the supervisor in the back, they came back with a price that was cheaper than what I could have got it locally, so I nodded as if I was at a livestock auction. Deal was done.
Once home, I immediately placed her in the safe.
Just kidding, I placed her in my OWB carry holster that JUGM, "THE BEST WIFE IN THE WORLD" got me for Christmas and immediately strapped her on my side. Here are some pictures of her.
It comes with two very nice 7 round stainless steel mags. I placed my Chip McCormick PRO MAG 8 rounder next to the Ruger Mag.
Next test is to take it to the range, may try to go this week or wait until I'm in SC to fire a few rounds off. So far, so good. Will let you know how she shoots.
