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!

The 1911 pattern pistol is to hand guns what the V-Twin is to motorcycles and the Colt is the Harley!
If you ever get bored with the finish on Canebrake, you could always try a finish like one of these three.

Okay guys....I just put the first hundred rounds through my brand new Colt New Agent! I swear it is always so hard to fork out the money for something like this, but when you get the gun home and admire it, shoot it, clean it, wear it....its all worth it. Love my new CCW. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
