Finally got back to my state of residence so I could purchase a 45. I went to the store with a pocket full of cash, well a credit card anyway, intent on a Kimber. After playing with them I ask about a Colt and they just happened to have a Combat Elite. It isn't in the same category as a Kimber carry gun but it felt better so it has a new home. This is the first time in 40 years that I have held a 45! Got it back to the motorhome,field stripped it and found it really clean. I don't think there was any lube at all on it so it got some SBGO (brought it with me just in case) and put back together. Now to get back to WA so I can hit the range. It was really nice to be able to go into a gun store, pick out a handgun and walk out with it an hour later. None of this 15 day wait stuff. It was so much fun, I think I'll buy something else before leaving.
