    Hey guys,
    I'm a huge colt fan as it was my first pistol ever (357 magnum). Well I finally got my first colt 1911. Paid 800 for it and can't wait until it comes in in December. Colt specialized it for my unit as we are deployed in Iraq and here's what it looks like. Can't wait to shoot it either! The grips are going to be smooth with laser engraved unit crest. I plan on switching those out with a regular set of colt grips with a silver medallion. It should look pretty nice!

    Nice Colt. Good Idea. Not a fan of the Punisher.

    I'm a huge fan of the Tom Jane punisher. That's a sweet looking 1911 guy.

    brings a tear to my eye to see a kid these days with his Colt priorities right :)
     
  7. Distinctive, but I'd delete the punisher logo as well.

    Well, we are the 224th Punishers so the logo kind of makes sense. But I can see where you guys are coming from. The original layout they did wasn't all that great. This is the third layout I believe.
    Gotta love my colts! Next up: 1908 hammerless and probably an M4

    So, what are you doing for the rotorheads? Crew chief, gunner, pilot?

    Get yourself some of these Colts.

    I'm a crew cheif. Luckily its starting to cool off a little bit lately. It hasn't been as hot as usual. I do have one of these colts, only it's the 4 inch version. I love it!

    Oops, I screwed up, that isn't the Officers Model Match, that's the .357 Magnum Model.
