There are a lot of answers to your question.
Originally I purchased one because of the history and the fact my father carried one. But later it became a wonderful gun to shoot. Personally if you don’t have a Grand in your collection, your collection is not complete. And how much longer will they be available in the quality and quantity that the CMP has?
