    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Gun Blog .45

    Para-USA Gun Blog .45 special edition. They made 25 of the .45 and 15 of the 9mm, so it was pretty exclusive--low-speed internet geeks only, thank you very much. These are basically just the Tac-S model with the addition of a Para fiber-optic front sight, a Para rear target sight (think of a Bo-Mar with sharp corners) a pair of Crimson Trace Lasergrips, and the marking "Gun Blog 45" on the slide. (Unless you ordered the 9mm, in which case your Europellet shame is broadcast for all the world to see.)

    I like mine a lot. It has the LDA trigger, and I wasn't sure what I'd think of that, but it sure works for me. Mine has run perfectly so far--zero stoppages, zero failures to feed, zero failures to eject, zero failures to fire. One of the other bloggers, though, has had to send his back twice for major issues--a broken grip safety and something else I forget at the moment. It'll be interesting to see whether Para's new American factory in North Carolina will solve their quality control issues, because the designs are great. Get one put together like mine was and you're a happy camper.

    I don't even really like guns all that much ... but goddamn the collector geek in me is tweaking out .

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.
