    As promised I've attached photos of my new to me Les Baer Monolith Comanche Heavy. I've also attached a photo of my first target. I shot about 100 rounds of mixed ammo including Wolf, Critical, Aquila and Winchester white box. The Baer ate everything put into it without a hiccup. It shoots similar to my Kimber CDP but better. There is practically zero muzzle bounce and very little recoil making target acquisition very easy without much in the way of recovery time. It feels good in the hand and comes up onto to target very nicely. It's easy to reload and to handle. The trigger is right on for me and both safeties function with no noticeable effort. The only thing which will need some attention are the sights. It is equipped wit night sights but in my opinion they're weak. I need a more noticeable front sight as I found it difficult to see the front sight. I haven't decided what corrective measure to take and am looking for suggestions. I shoot at three different distances 7, 20 and 25 yards. I was pleasantly surprised at the results especially at my results at the 25 yard line. Please keep in mind I'm not an expert shooter, I'm just a 62 year old who shakes a little and mainly shoot M1 Garand rifles. I was happy enough with the results that next trip to the range I plan to shoot at the 50 yard line, I probably won't be posting those results! Any way here are the photos, comments and suggestions please.

    Looks great! I like the arched mainspring housing. The shooting's really not bad at all! I think you'll enjoy the challenge of the 50 yard shooting. :smilie:

    Looking forward to hearing how it continues to break in.

    My MONO Commanche has become my favorite 4.25 gun.It has something about it that my Ed Brown KC just doesn't seem to possess.

    The holster issue is another matter all together.If I hadn't bought C.HELM'S Sherrick holster(AS RUSTY DOESN'T SEEM TO LIKE MY MONEY :mad2:)I would be up the river without a scabbard,so to speak.

    Fine shooting by the way. :thumb:

    Hey Great Shooting and Congrats on a fine new Baer.
    I waited 7 months for my Mono Commanche HW and in the end It was well worth the wait.
