    It looks like a great way to spend the day. But it also looks like some more neat guns I won't be able to buy here.

    Regarding Para's Companion II: this is their re-introduction of the Companion name. Also, their LDA offerings in the last few months (i.e. since they stopped listing 'special' models online), were limited to ultra-compact pistols. By contrast, this model has a 4.25" barrel.

    Another change involves Para's hi-cap 9mm pistol: it was replaced by a model that is part of their 'Limited' line, i.e. with a stainless slide that has blackened rounds, polished flats and front serrations. Also, the frontstrap has checkering instead of vertical grooves.
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

    Yes, Dan Wesson is offering a new model (at least I think it's new) called CCO, which consists of an Officers-size aluminum alloy frame, matted to a 4.25" barrel/slide combo. Check tonight's pictures.

    Three days and no Colt's or Wilson Combat yet? The agony.

    Good coverage of what's new in 1911s as always John. Keep it coming.

    Can you get pictures and details of MSRP and when the Colt Mustang Pocketlite will be re-introduced? Great show coverage, thanks.

    I find it intriguing that so many companies are introducing 1911s (of sorts) in .22 caliber. This must be the year of the .22 pistols. And it's doubly interesting that SIG's 1911 actually looks like a 1911, rather than like a SIG. I wonder who makes it for them.

    On a different note, I don't know whether to laugh or cry over all the Centennial models that don't look anything like the original M1911. Many of them are downright UGLY. Who would pay money for some of those things?
