I have decreased the amount of time I am shooting my Colt Defender now. While I have experienced 100% reliability, and the pistol has shown no signs of failure, I am cognizant of the lightweight aluminum frame. I am shooting it enough to remain proficient, all the while monitoring it for any sign of frame cracking.
I continue to be amazed at just how accurate the little three inch 1911 can be with slow fire.
Today, I took the Defender to the range and shot off both magazines of carry ammunition. It was time to rotate it out.
