Almost lost my wife (girlfriend at the time) on that day 9 years ago.

Spent today solemn prayer and remembrance... cleaning guns.

Thought I'd share.











God Bless those who lost loved ones on that day.

Needs a visible front sight, and a ring hammer looks funky without an upswept beavertail grip safety. Nice gun otherwise.

Commanders are my favorite pistols.

This one is a fairly recent addition. A S&W PD.






This one was a early 80's Colt Lightweight Commander that came from factory wearing a Combat Commander slide. I recently sold it to another member here that is going to rebuild it.



This one I had lightly customized. Obviously a Colt 1991 Commander



This one is a custom built 10mm commander using Caspian parts.

This was a gift from my FIL to my wife so I'm not sure I want to change it much, if any. Her carry is a M&P 9c that I bought her and that's another reason I'm hesitant to put money into this one.

Interesting observation about the hammer. I always thought this was all factory. Now I'm wondering if it may not be. Anyone know?

Yours is factory, that's the way they came, except for the full length guide rod.



ETA: One of my many half assed attempts at photography.
This ones a 45 ACP.

9mm? WTF?

J/K, very nice 1911. I think I need a Colt, as I only have 1 1911 now, a RIA.

Beautiful Colt, my friend. Glad your girlfriend made it through the events of September 11th to eventually become your wife.
