    So i havnt even received the guns yet,and got an offer to trade.No pictures,i dont have it yet and only got to hold it,but im getting ahead of myself.

    Yesterday im hanging out at a 'celebrity gunshop',little known expensive place.Talking about how the double behind-the-back holster feels like ****.No way i can carry like that.Owner says "Ive been thinking about carrying two guns.Wanna trade them TRPs for a Wilson?" I was like,i know their expensive but that just doesnt sound fair,two guns for one.

    He pulls it out and unloads it.Offers to trade me the Bill Wilson carry 1911,holster,knife and fresh box of ammo for the two Springfields.

    So i just looked up the products,and HOLY CRAP i feel good.Going tonight to get the paperwork done.When the TRPs get delivered the trade will be complete.

    Im so excited! Heres the link for the Wilson site and what i looked up.

    EDIT:

    The gun is not new,has about 200 rounds through it.I know the guy,i trust him,he takes care of his things.

    Forgot to mention the upgrades he spec'd.Bullet Proof pack with ambi safety,and tritium sights.

    I would do it if the Wilson is brand new. In fact I trade 2 Springfield loaded models for a Les Baer. Was so pleased with it I traded a pair (ranger 2's) for another Baer.

    Congratulations!

    Congrats..I think:dunno:
    So you don't have the TRPs yet? But you traded them for a WC? I guess I am a little confused here. Your first sentence says "I haven't received the gunsyet. Where are the TRPs being delivered to? Either way congrats. As long as your happy then :thumbsup:

    Safe to assume the TRP's are new and waiting for delivery to the OP, and then he'll trade them for the BWC.
