    Today I went to the gun store to get a Springfield RO but they just didn't have one. I tried looking for something else but I just couldn't pick anything out:crying:

    Maybe next time I go back they'll have something I want!!

    RO's are impossible to find locally here too. If you are set on one I'd check all the online gun dealers and gun broker.

    Hahaha!! I sure didn't!!! I looked for a Dan wesson guardian but they didn't have one of those either!! They had a kimber gold combat but I couldn't bring myself to buy it. I already have 3 kimbers and I don't really need another. I might have to start looking online for one!!

  11. Matt, I know how you feel. I couldn't spend any $$ right now at my LGS if I wanted to, birthday or not. The availibility of decent guns aroung here is pitiful.
    If I walked in and saw a TRP/Valor (heaven forbid a Wilson, Brown, Baer or NH) I would faint. Your almost forced to do business over the interweb no matter how much you like the LGS owner.( He does have a hard time wipeing the smile off his face. ) Good luck on your quest.

    I don't have a problem with buying a gun on the Internet, I just wish I had it today!!! I guess I should have bought one last week and just not picked it up until today!! Next year I'll be wiser at this!!

    I do wonder why you can go to any pawn shop or local gun store and they always have the polymer guns but never enough 1911's!!! I guess the 1911's are like fine wine and the polymers are like beer?? They had a hk p30 but I just wasn't into it.

    Yeah, I've only seen two in my local shops since its introduction.

    There are always plenty on Gunbroker though. :)
