A Great All Around Gun...

The Public Defender. I have had it now for three weeks. This is the standard with the full hammer not the ultralight version with the bobbed hammer. I found while handling many versions that I had to adjust my grip to pull back on the bobbed hammer. I like the option of single action to maximize control for distance shots, which I have yet to try on this one. And I figured the ultralight would be hell on recoil (I was comparing to my S&W .38 spl 637 Airweight which kicks like a mule and wonder what the effects of an ultralight 45LC would be) so I decided to go with the full weight version in all blue. I bought one of the exclusives with the wood grips. The gun did come with an extra set of ribber grips. I was ultimately unsatisfied with the wood grips for the lack of recoil control that they offered. The ribber grips help absorb the recoil a lot better. The fiber optic front sight also helps for faster sight alignment. The ammo I used was Winchester Super X 45LC Lead Nose Cartridges. At fifteen yards we had a nice 6" grouping. She is carried in a Don Hume Jit Slide Open Top CC Holster. Easily concealed and it's not a gun that weight would be a complaint. Though not the ultralight, the gun is not a burden to carry. I have yet to try the 000 Federal Buckshot, but I believe that I will have great success with those. At $425 + tax you can't lose for an all around self defense and woods walking gun.
