ESP: FEG Hi-Power 9mm, extended combat safety and houge monogrip, same holster and pouch as above. (It works for both guns) I use a mix of FEG, Mec-Gar and Surplus magazines. I shoot 115 grain winchester "white box' fmj ammo or 115 gr winchester silvertips.

GRD yes that is the Ed Brown Kobra
Using three different re-loads that I use in my other 45's the Kobra is shooting about 3 to 4 inches low at 10 yards and about 6 inches low at 15 yards and at 25 yards I can not even hit a sheet of 8.5 X 11 papper aiming at the top of it. With my other guns I can keep them in the black at 15 yards all day. Ed did tell me that they are designed to shoot Federal ammo and will not shoot re-loads. I tried a few of the Federal store boughts tonight and I see no difference. I am trying to find out know if that is the best these guns will do, It is very nice to look at but I would not like to shoot comatition with it. My Cz will shoot circiles around it so far.
