Just got the little Colt Mustang. My first .380. I wanted it for a little deeper carry, where a little extra concealment was necessary. I do have a little Beretta Jetfire in .25, but felt like that caliber was just a little bit TOO little. Plus, it belonged to my grandmother - I'd hate to risk somehow losing that one.

I put about 120 rounds of FMJ and HP through the new Mustang straight out of the box (except I did run a dry swab through the barrel a few times before shooting it). No problems whatsoever. Cleaned him up and he's looking extra sharp now. A fine new addition to the little family!

This makes me happy to know that you, just like myself, don't pamper my firearms regardless of price. Love the STI. I wanted to get a new mustang, but I am just not fond of blade sights. I got the Sig P238 back when they first came out and love it in every aspect. Cheers. :cheers2:

Thanks, Charger. Yep, I buy my guns to use, not to put in a display rack. I've had the STI about 2 years now, and carry it pretty much every day. Great little gun. Wish I could afford a few more STI products. :drool:

I bought the Colt Defender a couple of months ago. I'd always wanted a Colt, and I'm very pleased with this one. As you can see, I really like the little officer size 1911's. My plan is to rotate my daily carry between those two every couple of months. Yes, carrying them regularly may drop the resale value, but that will be my kids' problem, not mine! :lol:

Just bought the little Mustang. I had been looking for one for a while, but they were a little hard to find (for me, anyway). Since I couldn't find a Mustang, I almost bought a P238. I really like the looks and feel of that little Sig, and heard nothing but good things about it. I was literally going to buy the P238 one weekend, when I just happened to see the Mustang offered on Cabela's web site (where I had not seen one before) for a good price, plus they had a sale going on which saved me another 40 bucks or so. So I ordered the Mustang on the web right then and there, then went to the store a couple of weeks later and picked it up. Very happy with it, also!

I went back to carrying my 1911 for a while now. I need to update my carry photo I guess, but I just bought one of the Shield .45 without the safety. My wife and I went to the range last week and all I did was take it out of the box, field strip it, wipe it down, add a little gun butter, put it back together, and ran a flawless 125 rounds of WWB through it. I am an XS Big Dot Sight man, but all I did was shoot the Shield stock and it is superb in my opinion. I also found it will fit my leather holsters from my Glock 19.

Like you I was suprised how much I like the Shield .45. I wanted one without the safety but got too good a deal on this one to pass it up. I am never going to sell it so I may modify the safety to disable it's functioning.

Springfield XDM 40. Probably going to go with something smaller and easier to conceal later on, but for now it's this with the 16 round mag with grip extension.

Nice looking Guardian. I like that Defender too. I am looking for a good deal on the Defender but may have to think about the Guardian now! Nice rigs.

Can't remember if I've responded to this or not, but here is mine. Glock 43 and the usual accoutrements...
