    I have always kinda wanted one. Sort of an oddity in the 1911 world much like the .30 carbine automag.

    The Coonan rep came by the range about 6 months ago and let us shoot one. Nice gun. huge flame and accurate. 1700.00 msrp. 6 were put on order. We have yet to see them. If you can find one, its a good shooting gun. Built much better then the older versions but as of right now I still don't think there are any out there.

    I got to meet Dan Coonan at SHOT this year. Along with most of his family. They are great folks and Dan was taking pictures with us and he gave my buddy a huge hug and a kiss on the cheek it was so funny. It is on my list to buy. If you look at what you get in a coonan and a les bear or nighthawk you get a much better deal in a coonan.

    I had one of the older models several years back, and it was one helluva great pistol. It never failed to feed or eject no matter what ammo I fed it, still kicking myself in the ass for getting rid of it. It's on my replacement list if the economy ever gets back to semi-normal.

    those who beat their guns into plowshares, will plow for those who didn't

    Shotgun News also had an excellent article awhile back.

    Anybody who has a fax contact me and I'll fax it to you.
