Well, I thought I made my choice. I've been reading the posts for the 3 guns I'm been thinking about for CCW, Para-Ord P10, Kimber Ultra Carry and the Colt Defender. Now, I call my Dealer/Gunsmith/Range Owner, and he says the Defender is a piece of crap mostly because the guide rod is way too thin for reliability and a few other reasons. I can't help but think he is against it because he doesn't stock it and wants me to buy the Kimber he does have. I'm getting more confused at every turn. What do you guys think here on the Colt Thread? Any problems with that guide rod or anything else?
