How much is Cane paying you for this post?

Though I agree with some, I disagree with other points made.
I don't believe the loose fitting slides exist in the new stock weapons anymore. At least not in my recent experiences. I've purchased a new series 70 and a Combat Elite in the last year, and both were very tight.
I use to be in love with my Kimber years ago... Sold it for the mystique and reliability. I've never looked back since... and likely won't own much else.

Back in the mid 90's the Colt's were a hot Item at the Gun Shops and I went through at least 4 of them before I started to become interested in the Glock Pistols. I loved everything about them except I must agree that out of the box, they could not be a reliable carry gun. The Gun shops were loaded with Colts of all types including the .380 models which I owned two but now you may find one in the display case if you are lucky. One very good thing about them is they hold their resale value. I just sold one of my Colt 45 SAA guns for more than I paid for it 10 years ago. The only Colt I still own is a 2nd Generation Colt SAA, with a 7 1/2 barrel and I will never sell this gun. Colt has a great History and helped make this great country we live in but I will never buy one for a Carry weapon.

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!
