I own this pistol, along with a Gold Cup National Match. The Commander is my weapon of choice for concealed carry as it replaced a Beretta FS-92, which I still own. As another gentleman stated, you can buy a tacticool pistol with a high capacity magazine if that's your thing. However, if you feel you need 15 rounds of ammo, what you really need is more time at the range. This pistol is like having an old friend in my hand. Dependability is without question. True Colt quality in every aspect. I have added a pair of genuine Sambar Stag grips and it is black Cerakoted. I carry this pistol everywhere I go. The power of the .45 is legendary, and felt recoil is minimal. Even with hands that hurt like mine do, a day at the range is very enjoyable. Well done Colt.
