I love this funny little auto that took me 5 years to warm up to. I was showing it to a couple of old timers that have owned their Colt .45's since before i was born(I'm 37). The Colts still looked brand new, and both of them shot them allot. (they used them that day at the range and that was all they had , other than colt ar15's)One i think was a gold cup but they were talking of allot of colts, so i guess the colts of the last generation seem to be like the glocks are now right? Or is it just wishful thinking on my part and this Glock 27 will never see that many rounds, or years ??? i hope so because i am developing a love and trust for this auto. I don't want to have to replace it because it '"wore out"
