    I have a choice to pick up Friday either a Colt Wiley Clapp or Gold Cup in 45acp. The Wiley Clapp is a little bit more cost wise but I am fine with that. This is to simply to add to my collection and the joy of shooting. I already have a Colt Talo in a 9mm. Its really fun to shoot. My question is what are some opinions on which one to pick and why. I am leaning towards the Wiley Clapp. There is also a Les Baer for sale but it is so tight it is damn near impossible to pull the slide back. Anyway, any input would be appreciated. Take care, Ed

    Get the Wiley Clapp. I have a standing order for a Wiley Clapp Colt with my LGS.

    Considering the numbers produced, I would go with the Wiley Clapp.

    Wiley is nice, Les Baer's are too.... I have a Wiley Clap Commander and a Les Baer UTC... Both reliable and great shooters.

    If a Baer is in the mix, that's definitely the way I would go. You're talking about a while different league with Baers.

    Wiley Clapp, it's a great gun, and to reiterate, the numbers produced.

    This seems like the type of thing that he would just jump on immediately.
