    I assume you have to stop talking when you aim?? It must be hard for Canadians to shoot straight with those bobble heads like they show on south park? :D

    Nice gun. For a Canadian to have such a pretty gun is kind of amazing. I don't know much about you laws but my Canadian relatives say it's a royal pain to get anything good.

    Dang son! Nice gun! That's a heck of a target! What was the range? A hundred yards? Two hundred?:D I'll bet you'll have some really tight groups after you sight it in!:D:D

    I'm with everyone else, NICE !! I'm rather fond of black on black, kinda like my favorite bike, the Harley NightTrain, no chrome, no shine, just bad A...

    I will side with JUNK, get a couple hundred rounds and try some different ammo. Get comfortable with the gun until you get some consistent groups and then make adjustments. Get it broke in and she'll be a fine gun. Just my opinion, but whenever I'm sighting in a new gun, I give it some time before I start making too many changes because until I get used to it, my body and eyes will be making enough already.

    Either way though, you'll get tight groups soon enough. Thanks for the post, always nice to see the new ones!

    Nice looking piece!! I am actually looking at getting one myself. I held one at my local gun store and for the price it cannot be beat. The fit and finish was excellent and the slide/frame were very tight. Para did a good job on this gun!!! Good luck and enjoy!!!!

    Now you had to mention guns and Harleys. I got a 2009 Street Bob in Pewter Denim to match my stainless Springfield Milspec. But the all black gun is very nice. And you never have to worry about it clashing with anything you wear. :)
