    You'll enjoy it. I love my Trophy Match. I like the sights on yours better though.

    I have guns that I like to shoot and I have a 1911 that I love to shoot. They are a sweet piece of iron.

    I've been jonesing for a certain stainless cco. I'm so glad that I procrastinated on sending CJ a check.

    If I would have had to pass on this today I would be crying tonight.

    Congrats! I don't know how you resisted going straight to the range immediately!!

    I'm jealous as I sit here waiting for my Kimber Eclipse Pro II .45 cal that is on order.

    Nothing worse than having to pass up what yu want or a good deal because you got something else.

    The last time I did that it was in the 1911 area as a matter of fact.

    couldn't find what I wanted so I spent more money on the next best that was actually "More" than I wanted for the purpose, only to find what I had been shopping for by coincidence 2 weeks later. I could have traded down but I would have lost A LOT of $$$$

    It was nearly dark and I always clean and lube whatever I buy before I shoot it. I'll be heading there early tomorrow though!

    I have an older plain ole Kimber Eclipse that has had a little work done and it's a sweet shooting gun. I hope that yours is all that you want it to be. Waiting stinks.

    countrygun, 1911's are tricky. I just hope that this one is all that I've read that it is. I shot my TRP, yesterday and really enjoyed it. It will be fun to compare these two.

    I bought this gun at my lgs on the way to a gun show.
    It was kinda fun having dealers try and sell me something little and pink this afternoon. One guy tried to sell me a cap gun! I did enjoy the little red caps on a roll when I was about four or five though. I graduated to BB's when I was six and a Winchester 67 when I was nine.:rofl::rofl:

    My wife has several .45s 1911 type and others and she collects and shoots generally S&W .357s. She was in the LGS picking up one not long ago. The LGS owner is a friend and also a neighbor. Some well meaning customer started in on her with the"'That's a pretty big gun for a little lady, maybe you should look at a .380" The owner of the shop just about busted a gut, when my wife looked down in the case at the .380 and said "Why would I want that? My Kimber .45 isn't much bigger and I can pack it all day".

    She then launched on the guy with a lecture on why she prefers a 158gn KSWC in a .357 for blacktail deer ans opposed to a JHP or anything that generally feeds through an autoloader, although she might like a 10mm "like my husband's I could get one with a bit smaller grip".

    I will spare the story of her CWP class:cool:

    Thanks for all of the great comments everyone!

    We started watching a movie and finally I said 'oh hell,
    I can't sit still. I have new gun fever!":rofl:

    I'll be glad when Greg comes along. In a round about way he kept me from spending my $ on a Stinger. Then he posted the pics of the Pro he bought and...

    ETA: countrygun sounds like your wife and I would have fun shooting together. I LOVE shooting .357 revolvers as long as the barrel isn't over 4". After that the balance is off for me.

    She has a 4" 28, 66, 686, Ruger Gp-100, Taurus Tracker and a 2" J" frame "ladysmith .357, She has eyes on my 3" 65 but since we have the ladysmith J, and the 3913 LS I want to get her the 3" "ladysmith" 65.

    we have ur own little range right out the front door. It it any wonder I consider reloading the .357 to be my "full-time job" ?
