Man, Its so annoying to keep reading about the Colt Delta Elite blowing up, frame cracking, disintegrating, causing homelessness, initiating terrorism, etc. All BS. Due to the hot Norma loads put through the gun back when they were first made, the early models cracked above the slide stop hole. This didn't affect function and Colt solved the problem by machining out the metal in that area. I have a very early blued Delta that was post-fix and Iv'e shot 220 grain hot Buffalo Bore ammo, Double Tap, and Winchester Silver Tips through it. And it's a gorgeous, 20+ year old gun and anyone would be lucky to own one if you can find it at a decent price. And I also have a Glock 20, which I also love. I love the 10mm round, and keeping one in my truck for defense makes me feel good. Especially knowing if I have to pump rounds through a door or a windshield, I can do that. Nothing against the .45 ACP, because it is a man-stopper, and the virtue of the round is the fact that it's subsonic and so damn big, and I wouldn't hesitate to use it for defense. But, when you really, truly wanna bust a would be attacker's ass, It's hard to beat the big 10. And the Delta certainly isn't a bad gun for any round you'd wanna put through it. Man, nothing brings out sheer ignorance like a gun debate.
