Nice gun. Beautiful. Have lots of fun with it.

Also, thanks for a great idea for a target.

2 years ago it took 7 weeks for my S&W M&P. Now it's 8-10 for the ATP to be issued by the NYPD. That's NYC, a pain in the neck. But I wouldn't live anywhere else.
9/11...Never forget. God Bless America

Great pics. I just got my Elite and just love shooting it. Sunday shot 8 rounds as fast as I could pull the trigger at 10 yards and kept all 8 rounds in the 5" diameter x ring. Shoots better than I can. Have a great time with a truly great 1911 by Colt.
