Sheesh... why do I do this to myself? Ok; my local shop has a new Defender. I loved the way it felt in my hand. Now, it looks like if I want it bad enough, something's gonna have to go. (If I hadn't put that old Hi Power on layaway last week... but I'm glad I did.) I can't get rid of my Combat Elite or my Anaconda. That leaves my '76 Combat Commander. Would you go for the Defender, if it meant bye-bye, Commander?

Keep the 70 series Commander..use the plastic for the Defender...you`ll have it paid off in 6 months and still have your Commander..

No! The Defender isn't that hard to find. Another one will pop up later when you have the cash. Good pre-Series 80 Combat Commanders are VERY hard to find. I know, as I searched high and low for one over a couple of years before finally giving up and getting a Series 80 instead.

Sit down, take a deep breath, relax. Doesn't that feel better? Seriously, don't let your Commander go. You'll be sorry a few days later. Lots of Defenders to pick from.

Never trade anything you really, really, like if you can't replace it. Defenders are replaceable, 70 series Commanders are not (at least not without a lot of time and money to find one).

Good advice from the others and I agree, don't get rid of the Commander!

If it wasn't for the NRA, the second ammendment would already be gone!
