    I recently purchased a bone stock STI Guardian 2011 in 9mm to be my everyday carry. I looked at other offerings like the Costa VIP but after looking at the features I knew I could get what I wanted with the Guardian with a little extra work. I contacted Lou at Business End Customs, told him what...

    I've got a few guns I'd be interested in trading for a BEC. Not likely, but figured I'd give it a shot. If you've got one you're interested in parting with - shoot me a PM. Thanks!

    Lou did some work on this Colt for me a couple years ago, and, after getting it back, I decided I wanted to have additional work done to it (things I failed to ask for initially). The main upgrade was the addition of a lowered thumb safety. I'm fond of these and he happened to have an extra in...
