    After all the posts, questions, visiting the gun shops, test firing etc I finally ordered my first gun. It is a 1911 Fusion PRO-Series ELITE Custom in 10mm. If you visit their website the basic model is the No 35. It is a 5" stainless variety with an added bobtail grip. The front sight is a XS Combat white dot front sight with center tritium mid dot. The rear is a Novak style Combat adjustable Tritium Night sight. The trigger is by Fusion Firearms, it is a match grade FUSION Commander HAMMER + Combat trigger group. The hand grips are a smooth wood. I must say I am really looking forward to getting this in. However, being a custom job it is going to be a while. Since I am excited it is going to seem to take even that much longer I am sure. :D

    I've been dreaming about a Fusion Longslide 10mm for some time now.

    As a clarification, is this really your first gun, or the first gun that you've ordered (i.e. had built)? Just seems like an unusual, but sweet, first pistol.

    Yes this is my first handgun. However, I have had the opportunity to shoot a variety of hand guns such as 9mm, 357 Mag and .45.... As a military guy I am pretty familiar with firearms... Just have never owned my own.

    Sweet. Fusion has a good reputation well earned with Dan Wesson. I've been thinking about a 9mm Scout.

    Good Choice. One question, What was your determining factor to purchase it in 10mm?

    Wow, nothing like swinging for the fences. Great first gun. I've been drooling over the Fusion long slides for about a year now. I like the 10mm, it has a high giggle factor...
