It was an excellent day spent at Gunsite with Colt and Double Tap ammunition   trying out the newest introductions to the Colt line. I am especially excited about the Colt Cobra and Delta Elite with the rail. You can see my review of the Colt Cobra by following this link.


By Hunter Elliott

I spent much of my youth involved with firearms and felt the call early on to the United States Marine Corps, following in my father's and his brother's footsteps. Just after high school I enlisted and felt most at home on the rifle range, where I qualified expert with several firearms and spent some time as a rifle coach to my fellow Marines. After being honorably discharged I continued teaching firearm safety, rifle and pistol marksmanship, and began teaching metallic cartridge reloading. In the late 1990s I became a life member to the National Rifle Association and worked with the Friends of the NRA. Around that time my father and I became involved with IDPA and competed together up until he passed away. I began reviewing firearms for publications in the mid 2000s and have been fortunate to make many friends in the industry. Continuing to improve my firearms skills and knowledge is a never ending journey in which we should all be committed. I am also credited as weapons master on a few independent films.

  1. Looks like you guys had a great time. I’ve always loved the Colt Delta Elite and adding a rail just makes it practically perfect now. Allison was a sharpshooter with it too! As always, keep up the great work.
