My new Colt Delta.

My new Colt Delta. Beautiful gun, very well made. Too bad I haven't found any 10mm yet to try her out, but I'm working on it.

Colt DE 10MM

I'm jealous. both my son and I are looking for one if they're in good condition. You can find the 10MM on Double Tap. That's what I use in my Glock.
At your consumption rate though it might get expensive.

Charley, yea, I just saw the link to double tap a few minutes ago and I'm going to order some. I'm not going to shoot alot out of this one. I mainly just shoot alot of 9mm right now because of the price. But, I sure would like to have a few rounds of 10mm to try this thing out.

Put it through the screens to see what it gets. I'm really curious. Also, you may want to put a fresh recoil spring in it. Do not want to hurt that sweetheart !

Hey Catfish, very nice

I agree with Mark, looks like stainless and it's very nice. I only have one pistol in my weapons collection. Left-handed, right eye dominant I shoot shoulder arms right handed and it's always seemed perfectly natural to me, but I have to shoot a pistol left handed and it doesn't feel natural at all.

Hey Charley, if he could get you the brass, couldn't you hand load some for him?

Thanks Ironkoji. I think my dad is left handed-right hand dominant, he shoots way to the left when shooting right handed. But he can outshoot me big time with a rifle.

So I finally got to shoot this thing the other day. After waiting forever to get a hold of some 10mm, I finally got some and took her out. Only put 50 rounds through it (didn't want to shoot up all my hard gotten ammo at once) but no jams, functioned flawlessly and was fairly accurate. But boy does it bite!! This was my first time shotting a 10mm and the kick and concusion from this thing just made me smile. Alot of fun!!

That is really a good looking gun. I am a big guy, but don't like being jostled around by a pistol. At 65 it is only going to get worse as I lose muscle mass. Don't ever get old! My personal advice.

Sam...Everybody keeps giving me the same advice, not to get old. I think people want to see me die young!?!?

Raffy, yea ammo prices have me depressed. I look at what it cost me 2 years ago compared to now and it's just sad.

Raffy, I can still get 9mm for about 9 dollars per 50, however they only let me get a box a day. I don't think that's at every wal mart, just the ones around me.

Thanks Ivan. No I didn't give it a review, but I think I might try to do that. Only problem is when I've tried in the past, my picture comes up and blocks the whole page, but I'll try again. Yes, there is a huge difference in recoil in the 9mm and 10mm. The 10mm is basically a .40 cal with a longer casing. I was shooting in an indoor range and the concusion from the 10mm I could feel in my chest and other people around me came out to see what I was shooting when I started because they could feel it too. It's got a lot of knockdown power, but after about 25 rounds, you start feeling it in your hands. It is a sweet shooter though. So far, no problems, feed flawlessly and was right on the money at 20 yards. I'll see if I can do a formal review a little later.

what purpose do you have the pistol for.?? home defence?? will you carry this weapon?? what kind of ammo are you using..the reason i ask is, there are a few guns i see that i will buy. i may shoot them a few times but they will go in a case and stay there..

Ivan, I mostly have the pistol just because I liked it and it's fun to shoot. I will be using it for home defense, it will sit in my dresser drawer, but no, I won't carry it, it's too big and heavy for my carrying tastes. For defense I have Winchester 175grain Silvertips.

You know

There ought to be some type of penalty for that garbage. It is vandalism to paint crap on a wall and it should be to do it here too.

Which way are my people going? I have to lead them there!

I'd like to see them make it a crime of theft.

They are stealing band width and storage space when doing it. So why shouldn't it be considered theft and criminal?

They could make it where the Web Site Owner/Operator could bill it back to their provider and then the provider can either bill them, bill them and black list them, and a black list DBF could be kept and scanned so when they attempt to sign up with another they can't...

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!
