    I just listened to the entire 1911 portion and found it interesting.

    One thing he didn't mention is that there's still a huge market for custom 1911s, despite the semi-custom market coming on the scene in the last 15-20 years. Wilson and Nighthawk are far from the ultimate in 1911 pistols, but someone hearing that and not knowing any better would probably think they were.

    One thing I liked is the fact that he spoke about Springfield Custom and Guncrafter.

    I definitely like hearing good things about the Spartan. There pretty highly regarded on the forums, but a lot of people around town laugh and dont see where the extra money goes from the STI and the RIA tactical

    I'll agree with you there!! It's hard to get him to go into detail on just about anything else

    I highly doubt that when people were buying trucks for $9000. They were paying a gun smith $3000 to tune a new gun. Maybe a little exaggerated
