Ooohhhhh, you got it BBBAAADDDDDD!!! LOL

Have you even SHOT the 10MM yet?! Or are you just running willy nilly through the Nighthawk site with reckless abandon. :p

I am looking forward to your report. As we discussed, I have looked at the Bob Marvel .22 conversion on several occasions and pulled out my credit card only to look at that "purchase" button and second guess myself. :o

Looks like there are now TWO Nighthawk Spokesmen here on FTF. I expect you to hold up our reputation and beat back Canebrake at every 1911 turn. ;)

Looking forward to your shooting impressions.

With the full sized, steel, and +P .45, I can stay all in the 8-10 ring at 10 yards doing double taps. That makes JD feel very comfortable knowing that. ;)

I imagine with that 6" all steel long-slide the 10mm will be a mere pup in the barking land of recoil, and should handle like a dream.

And your a bastard for adding a second in less than a week! :p

Yeah?

Nooooo. That is not a pistol anyone should actually own unless you have TOO much money. :eek:

Oh, Lady Hawk is a FORBIDDEN term around here. :mad:

Allow me to demonstrate.....

This is a 9mm Nighthawk Talon II that I ordered from NHC. I asked for slim grips, a slim frame if available, and a beveled mag well for easy reloads. Nighthawk claimed they did not have a "thin frame" Talon II frame when I ordered, but thin grips were not a problem. I also had a trigger job done upon arrival and the weapon was built with an upgraded spring to handle 147 grain +P hollow point ammo.

I ordered this weapon the year before the Lady Hawk was released at SHOT. :rolleyes:

Many of you know I moonlight as an apprentice gunsmith. I designed this weapon for my girl from the ground up to maximize usability, carry-ability and lethality with the 147gr. +P hollow points that must feed reliability.

My gal LOVES this weapon and refuses it to sell it and buy a Lady Hawk because she thinks I am a brilliant gunsmith who set the industry standard that Nighthawk copied.

These pictures are not indicative of how the weapon CURRENTLY looks as she has made a couple of "fashion" upgrades? :eek:
