Now that's cool!

A great choice for the Marines in my opinion. Colt had better get this right or they will suffer. I'm sure they will. The Beretta made overseas is just wrong for OUR fighting men anyway.

Wish I had of had a colt in Iraq. It would have made me feel alot better.

The one I carried in Iraq wouldn't even fire reliably.

My first issued onegot broken. It somehow got smashed by an Abrams;) my second one I never fired.....until I was discharged that is. Then I had some royal fun TRYING to hit empty whiskey bottles
