Yep, and shot one ~6 months ago.

It's one sweet 70 series Commander.

Looks like another Colt is added to my bucket list.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Man you know you'd never do that! You'd miss changing all those diapers. Seriously, they get more fun as they get older, I caught mine singing in the shower just a little while ago, "Red solo cup" at six years old and he knows all the words. Very interesting hearing a young kid singing about spilling his beer

Haha I bet. I ain't selling my kid. He's a little stud with the ladies and he's only 9 mos. Just got his pics done for v-day.
Op, sorry for hacking up your thread

Touche! Maybe not. Fortunately, Les Baer has not given up on the California market: all of his semi-auto rifles in .223 and .308 are now California compliant. Surprised the heck out of me as I drooled over his web site.

The once great state of California is a mess, and we're looking to get out as soon as we can.

Get a Wilson. Then everything else will stay in the safe.

I bought the Colt Wiley Clapp for a Christmas present to myself. It's my EDC.
Light, accurate, reliable.
