    Hello All!

    I’m thinking about testing and getting a colt defender 9mm. Anyone have any history with the weapon? Also, what are some good rivals to this gun? Looking for a CC and home defense! Thanks you beautiful bastards!

    I don't have a Colt, but I do have the same in a Rock Island and a Kimber Pro Carry ii. Love them. How comfortable they are to carry depends on you and the holster you use. Great pistol though

    You’re a daisy if ya do.

    Avoid low powered crud ammo.
    Mine did require a break in but runs 100% now.
    You’ll want to buy some extra mags. Mine came with one mag only.
    Carry it in a Yaqui Slide.

    So you prefer the .45 to the 9mm? I was looking at both.

    Mine is a 9.
    Very happy with it.

    I've owned two Colt Officer's Model in stainless, one Colt New Agent and one Defender.

    I prefer a LW Commander or an ECO.

    Given the chance I'd spend a few more dollars and get a Dan Wesson.
