I can't believe it's so difficult to spend $2500?

    I can't find anyone who has any of the following:

    GI No Name
    TRS or UTC w/1.5
    SA PRO(I know good look w/this one)
    CQB

    I've called drc1911, Crazy John, GI, Gun Slingers and a few others that I can't remember off the top of my head.

    Who knew it would be so hard to find one?

    Lot of money for something that's not truly personalized.

    It's all about what you want to spend your money on. Some people buy expensive golf clubs or a $2500 dollar Gibson Les Paul to play in thier bed rooms. Others want to buy an awesome 1911.

    Its only 20 weeks. It could be much worse. I've been on a list for a Pro for 14 months now I think, with no end in sight.

    Tried to but when I click on your name it doesn't give me any options. That's the only way I know how to PM.

    Sometimes you got to wait for the gun you really want. Trust me, it's well worth the wait. :cool:

    Yeah, I'm gonna get a quote for a NN w/flush cut reverse crown, mag well and flush cut slide stop. GI told me to expect about a 12 wk wait. That's not really that bad.

    Get whatever the hell you want most. Its tough if you havent been able to handle/shoot many, but you cant go wrong with what you have listed. I can say i have owned a Baer (SRP and UTC) Wiilson (CQB) and STI (Trojan) and liked the Wilson the best.

    Dont let a few hundred bucks make the choice for you. This is a gun that will outlast you! You cant go wrong, but dont pick one because it is a couple hundred cheaper, IMO.

    Order what you want, and wait.

    I'm at the point where the things I really want are expensive and hard to find. A wait of 1-6 months has become part of the normal routine for me. Heck, I ordered my Surefire 7.62 suppressor 9 months ago, and the paperwork is still processing. No regrets though. I'd rather wait for what I really want than try to be happy with "good enough and convenient".
