    - Ok well he really didn't make me.. yet
    but i was told im supposed to say that :tongueout:

    - Anyways, I just finished my 4th range session with my first and only Glock and it still isnt exciting me at all, its very uncomfortable, RTF2 frame eats up my finger and pinky hangs off the grip and gets pinched between the mag.
    - I was talking to the guys at the range behind the counter and they said after the first few hundred rounds its just as reliable as any polymer pistol. and as for my dreaded fear of the bluing wearing down.. he said it will happen to any black pistol and i can always get a refinish if i need to.
    - he said I could get about $350 for the glock for a trade and the kimbers were onsale for $750 ( average internet price)..
    Edit: i guess i should add what i want lol black kimber pro carry II .45


    sooo my birthday is next month and i really really want one!!
    btw- the girlfriend is not happy with the idea :steamed:

    You can probably get 100 bucks more by selling it here on the forum classifieds. 350 is a piss ass trade in!

    Yeah, you aren't going to get much trading it in. Try selling it outright.

    As for your decision to go with a 1911, I'm all for it. :thumbsup:

    My Kimbers have been perfectly reliable from round one.

    Well, they will normally run smoother after a few hundred rounds, even if you don't have a malfunction.

    I know the fishgills are realitively rare.

    I don't see why you couldn't get a good $400 for it, maybe more. :dunno:

    Should be able to get at least $425-450, maybe more. Scope out the classifieds to see what they are going for. Just keep in mind you can get a NIB one for $399 + cost of GSSF membership.

    Mrs HS is HIGHLY anti-gun. I've bought several in the last few months. :supergrin:

    My wife was like WTF happened to the $500 Glock you were going to buy??? Now I've got a Kimber that was double the price and the DW is double and then some. :rofl:

    ^ ya i started with a walther p22 for $200 and she wasnt thrilled, the glock was purchased without permission lol and she wasnt happy about that. I told her at the time that it was the last one and i didnt need another one. bad part is im only 19yo so mom has to actually be there when I buy it and mom and the GF talk to eachother too much lol.

    Just use the whole "no external safety on Glock vs the MUCH safer with 2 external safeties 1911" argument. That worked on Mrs Hokieshooter. Well, not really....but that's what I went with. :thumbsup:
