Colt Defender .45acp

“Soild build and great finish inside and out.
..” These are the quotes often associated with theĀ  Colts of yester-year. But there was a period when Colt lost its way, the Wonder 9’s era. Think Colt 2000. The Colt before you is a 2013 manufactured return to quality to say the least.

This is not a test gun. I purchased it retail at Ed’s Shop in Vass N.C. for $999.00.

I added a Clipdraw. The trigger is absolutely the best out of the box I have ever purchased.

Looks to be a real workhorse.

Finally a Politician on gun control I agree with!

Letter received from a gun owner asking Congresswoman Renee Ellmers her thoughts on gun issues.


Thank you for contacting me regarding recent proposals for gun control. It is good to hear from you, and I appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concerns.

The recent tragedies in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut were indeed horrifying. We all agree that we need to protect our children, but we need to take a reasonable approach and not react in a way that damages the constitutional rights of law abiding citizens. We must look at the facts and make well thought out decisions.

Guns did not perpetrate these crimes, evil people did. There are certainly many things we can do to prevent these events from happening in the future, but restricting gun ownership for those who use them responsibly is not one. We need to look at a number of factors, including mental health and overall school security.

Additionally, the 2nd district of North Carolina is overwhelmingly against additional regulation. In fact, a poll taken during my recent tele-townhall showed that over 65% of my constituents are against any further laws restricting guns, magazines, or ammunition.

As a woman and a mother, I object to anyone telling me which tools I may use to protect myself and my family. Please know that I will continue to protect the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens, which are the foundation of our republic.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me on this matter. I look forward to communicating with you in the future as I serve the people of the Second District of North Carolina. If you would be interested in receiving my e-newsletter, or for other information, please visit my website at http://www.ellmers.house.gov to sign up or contact me.

Sincerely,

Renee Ellmers
Member of Congress

CZ 75

I have been scanning Gun Broker lately looking at CZ 75’s and their endless variations. I have noticed a real love/hate dynamic with these weapons. We may test one after all of this gun craziness subsides.

I have noticed that one seller claims if he does not sell his CZ 75 he will destroy it by means of shooting it with a rifle. It’s not clear to me if this is a ploy to get noticed or if it is real. With all the current pressure to make gun owners look unstable I have to think this can only add fuel to the fire.

To those who want to find the auction on Gun Brokers site just search “CZ POS”.

I was able to look at a CZ 75 yesterday at Guns Plus, home of Tru TV’s Combat Pawn reality show. The only model they had was the black CZ 75b. The weapon felt very good in the hand. First impression was Browning Hi-Power. I chose not to buy the gun in hopes of coming across a compact model. I noticed that a great deal of effort in finishing the guns exterior. I am aware that the inside of the frame does not receive as much detail.

A great site for those interested in all things CZ!

This IS why you need a gun!

When you hear someone suggest that you do not need more than a few rounds to kill a deer, refer to this.
