Not sure what the outcome was on them getting their money back.

    I planned to buy the Vice edition as soon as it came out.

    Not looking for a Been but a RIA 10mm like AFJuvat acquired is likely in the cards for me if they're still available when I identify the funds for one.

    I've shot the XD(m) 10mm 5.25 (but not owned one). Decent shooting pistol, if you don't mind the typical XD grip safety. The fiber optic front sight was nice. I also liked the 15+1 capacity and it handled the recoil quite well for a plastic gun. But at $600+ for the longer barrel version, I think I'd consider one used or look for a 4.5".

    A 9mm may expand but a .45 doesn't shrink!

    Colt Delta Elite.
    1911 and 10mm makes a great combo.

    If money was no object, this is the 10mm I'd be looking at:

    Pick up some itch cream, it will be cheaper than the cold steel cure.

    But not nearly as fun...

    You’ll note the absence of the ugly glock-like “horn” on the front bottom corner of the trigger guard. I cut that off and reshaped the trigger guard the first day I had it.

    I got and old Colt Delta Elite in 10mm. Not a CC gun, this is big and heavy. Accurate and weight keeps the kick down some.

    ^^^^ All 1911’s are suitable for carry pistols; even the full sized ones.

    They’re slimmer than any double stack poly pistol, and the weight is a non-issue with a proper belt and holster.

    I carry 1911’s all the time using just a tee shirt for a cover garment.

    The prevalence of ads in the gun magazines for little self proclaimed “carry guns” in no way means they’re the best choice for carry, just as the endless “pretty picture” ads proclaiming that kimber 1911’s are the best, most reliable available; when nothing could be further from the truth.

    As others have noted after seeing the shot that put down the murderer killing innocent people at their church; if your chosen carry gun isn’t capable of making such a shot; you need to make a better choice. If you’re not capable of making such a shot; you probably need to seek additional training. And; target practice isn’t training.
