I am proud to say my wife and business partner surprised me w/ a Colt Combat Commander, in .38 Super. It is a Series 80, Mark IV, and I cannot wait to get it to the range!!!:dancingbanana

It is rather plain and has some wear. I am not surprised, since I pulled about a pound of sand out of it. I was amazed to find the trigger bow still black though it was coated with beach sand. LOL.

It will probably get a sight change, in the near future, depending upon how it shoots.

If anyone has any experiance or thoughts, please let me know. It is my first .38 Super... I have bugged the crap outta my brother (he's an UBER-Geek when it comes to guns) but I like to hear other thoughts as well.

Happy New Year to all.

Your a Lucky Man !

I did some IPSC shooting back in the day. with a Springfield Armory 1911. Nice Round, great for knocking down them steel plates. The 38 Super has a distinctive sound when fired. Super easy to reload. I used my own reloads 125 grain lead round nose, Winchester 231 or Bullseye powder, Winchester small pistol primers. Since my gun was used for IPSC, I never shot factory loads from it.

Enjoy the gun, Its a beauty :thumsup

How it shoots

Well,
I got to the range on Sat and was stoked to shoot the thing. I loaded it up and took aim... click!
Click!
Click!

It wouldn't go bang!:mad:

So I tried different ammo... NOTHING!

When I get home, I strip it and it appeared that someone put in one of the wonderful series 80 things UPSIDE DOWN.

:smack

I pulled a bullet and powder out of one of the rounds and test fired it in a safe area... POP!

:drinks

So now, I have to wait until this weekend to put steel out... hopefully on target. LOL. :ak

The saga shall be continued........

Wow. Sorry to hear that, Dave. Hopefully, the next time will go well!

On a happier note, the Hi-Powers are perking right along. :drinks

WooHoo! \Scott Does Happy Dance!\ :dancingbanana

Be interesting to see how you worked the CCW Badge into the design. :rolf :laughing

Friday shouldn't be a problem. I'll give you a shout later in the week. Heck, if I don't drop a couple of pounds...you'll be making me some belts, too!

Thanks!
