I'm curious, when you fellers bought your Kobra's, was the Kobra carry avaliable yet, or did you want the 5"? Also, would you prefer the blue or all stainless, or have it hard chromed? And finally, Don, wheres that pic!? :smile:

The KC was also an option for me, but I decided to go with the 5". However, I see a KC in my future, but probably a few years away...or I'll have to sell something.

I like an all black gun...but the two tone is growing on me.

As for the picture: I was waiting until I got yet another set of grips in. I anticipated liking these grips a lot and wanted my next photos to have them. Well I got them, and they are a keeper, but I'm in the middle of wrapping up a contract and I'm working 7 days a week for the next few weeks. I'll get some photos up as soon as I can. Oh yeah, I also got a 10 round Power Mag with a base pad large enough to land small aircraft on. I'll also put a photo up with this “aircraft carrier” base pad...just to make your life a living hell, since I know you don't like large base pads. :grin:

I think the blue is absolutely beautiful. I am considering buying one in the next few months. I don't think it can't be beat as far as bang for the buck. I was considering buying another 1911 and having it customized but as I looked at cost and features I sold myself on the Kobra.

I want to know if the snakeskin pattern on the front strap is more durable than checkering as I am considering it for my duty gun. I am currently in an undercover capacity so I am not to worried about it getting beat up. But if I go back to uniform I wonder if it will get as much use as my lightly modified P-O Signature model with a smooth(serrated)front strap.

I know a gun is just a tool but I always feel guilty when they get dinged up. Any opinions would be appreciated on this matter.

By the way this is my first post on this forum and I think it is the one of the more knowledgeable firearms forums I have seen.

A Kobra Carry would definitly be in my future once I figure out how to get the Nazis in Sacramento out of power so us peasants can buy guns that most of the country can get.

IMO it is more durable then checkering the front strap. So far mine has held up well and i like the grip it provides.
