I don't understand someone who buys a 1911 because it's pretty and then turns around a year later and sells it only having put 300 rounds through it.

Well, that's not really a fair statement. Some people like to see how a gun is, try it out, don't fall in love with it and sell it to help fund their next purchase. Actually not an unwise thing to do. Some people are "flippers" and some are "hoarders/keepers". Unfortunately, for my bank account, I fall into the latter category. There are several guns that I think about selling, but then knowing my "want/need" type of personality, I end up keeping them, as some of the guns I've sold, I either bought back or bought another just like it. Now THAT's stupid. Or, even dumber, I've taken guns I wanted to sell and ended up putting even more money into them to customize them, so they were "worth keeping". I actually wish I could buy, evaluate and then sell at what I paid, or very little less or, actually turn a profit, with quite a few guns that I own. Counted up today and I currently own 38 1911's. And my stupid ass started thinking about trying to come up with a list of 7 more to add, so I could have 45 1911's. Now THAT, is something to not understand!

It's a very fair statement Joe but it certainly wasn't aimed at you, or anyone else in this thread. I just get very tired of the Errornet experts that try to tell others how great their choice was and then you see their pistol in the classifieds a year later with 300 rounds through it.

Great reputations aren't built on pretty pictures and pistols that only have 700 rounds shot through them.

So should they not buy a pistol they want because they aren't going to put 50k rounds down range?

I've only got a few hundred rounds through my Pro. But if I knew I could $6000 for it on GB, it'd be listed in the next 5 minutes. Hell, the other one only has a 100 rounds through it and looks brand new, so it should bring $7000. Hell, now that I think about it, what am I doing on GT? I need to be on GB!
