    In Richmond for a few days staying with my mom. My dad and I ran to a show this afternoon. Had about a bajillion Glocks, Sigs, and Taurus pistols. Quite a few HKs abd FNs. Bunch of low end 1911s (RIAs, ATX), a few Kimbers, one table with DWs (VBOB $1,500, DC VBOB $1,900, Valor $1,500, Guardian $1,450, CCO $1,400). Another guy had a few Colts (mostly XSEs) and one TRS ($1,900). 3 EMPs at various tables (2 .40s and a 9 which was $50 cheaper - all under $1,100). Bunch of ROs ($700-750) and a bunch of R1s ($560-599). There was one stainless TRP for $1,400 and a TRP Operator for $1,500. Didn't try to haggle as I wasnt buying but it was fun to walk around with my pop for 2 hours fondling BOOMsticks.

    That TRS is a hell of a nice gun. I was :drool: all over it....even with FCS.

    Happy 1/9/11 to you, too! That hadn't even occured to me. I'm fond of all my pistols, but my 5" 1911 is probably my favorite.

    Yay! It never crossed my mind. Come the end of March the 1911 will be in use 100 years.
