Nickel Plated Colt Delta Elite

The 10mm sickness is lurking within our pages! Here are a few gratuitous photos of my 1988 vintage, nickel plated Colt Delta Elite!

I might have to get some ivory or mother of pearl grip panels for it!

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

ooh, look! a "nickel-plated-sissy-pistol"! Tongue

Nice pics, as usual. It's a challenge taking pics of bright shiny objects and dealing glare and reflections.

Yeah, reflections are tough but sometimes you can use glare to your advantage! A couple of my shots above have intentional glare present! Big Grin

Yep! I've looked at just enough pics and critiques to know that a technically perfect pic is typically very boring and uninspiring.


Like mine... Confused

Usually, when I show my pics to wifey she says, "you know, your pictures are always technically very good, but... Blush

When they started filming the show Firefly, they had the uber expensive camera lenses that cut glare. Joss Whedon didn't like that so they returned the fancy lenses and bought the cheap Chinese ones that had that sunglare problem. He wanted it to feel like an amateur documentary.

Anyway, back to the gun. I've been wanting a 10mm for a while and nearly gave in and bought a recent model stainless Delta Elite. Only thing that stopped me was I wanted to make changes to the sights and safeties (extended thumb safety and beavertail grip safety) but I felt bad cutting up a Colt lol. I may end up saving for a Dan Wesson Razorback 10mm since the Nighthawk Custom I really want is $3k+ lol
