My buddy and I were heading to the range to shoot some pistols today and all of a sudden, the sky got dark and it began to rain pretty hard. We decided to ride to a gun store about 20 miles away with hopes of shooting guns afterwards if the rain died down a bit. I walk into the shop and what do I see on the top shelf? Could it be? Just last night I was digging around online for info on manufacturers of 10mm pistols aside from Glock (I have a G20). I found out Colt and Kimber make one, although very difficult to find at times.
There in front of me today is the Colt Delta Elite 10 mm. I bought it immediately and went shooting. The gun is day and night from my G20 (that I love). Apples and oranges. No real value to this post, just excited. Almost seemed like fate. I first heard of this gun yesterday, then due to bad weather find it today. The guy at the gun shop said folks had already been calling and emailing about the Colt. Guess it wasn't going to be on the shelf long. Shot 100 rounds of Rem UMC 180 gr today with flawless feeding and stellar accuracy. I was all smiles. This gun is also my first 1911 as well. I can see it won't be the last.
I am so glad it rained today
