End of last year I used a credit to acquire a like new 45c. I was able to put 2 magazines through it before deciding. I was impressed with how the gun handled recoil and I liked the way it felt in my hand, so I grabbed it. I had not shot it again until this past Saturday. After putting about 100 rounds through it I have to admit I'm surprised by the accuracy, or at least my ability to shoot very accurately with it. Really is fine pistol. Easy to see why it is so popular here.
