Sell my Pro for???

    I've been considering unloading my Pro since they have been selling for high $ lately. Mine doesn't have the normal safe queen appearance that most have, so I know I won't get the same premium but I should get enough to buy something else.

    And that leads into my question. What to replace it with? I have more than enough pistols as it is, so there is nothing I can't live without.

    I've thought about a Brown, but I honestly wasn't overly impressed with the 2 I've shot. I felt the same about Wilson at first but ended up with a great CQB.

    Baer's have never let me down and I've thought about a second TRS or a SRP.

    I've spoke with George about a Guncrafter NN. He gave my a great price from what I have seen. I'm not crazy about the style of grip safety they use, but I could tweak it as needed.

    I already have a NH but my Enforcer has made me consider another NH of sorts. Not sure if I'd get another Enforcer or a plain GRP.

    And my final thought, sell the Pro, buy a M&P 9mm and about $1500 worth of reloading components and have fun with what I have.

    Hmmm...

    The M&P angle is an interesting one. You can purchase a ton of stuff for $1,500.00
    Just be aware though, the M&P's are not nearly as accurate as the TRP Pro is, so it won't make you look as good. :cool:

    I have both pistols and both are fun to shoot.

    Sometimes a person just has too many choices...

    While I haven't shot a M&P 9, I do own a full size 45. It is VERY accurate, head shots at 25 yards with ease as long as I do my part.

    For my shooting, I'm not concerned about 1.5" vs 3" group sizes..or whatever, but point well taken.

    I would say a Wilson, but since you already have one how about a Pistol Dynamics Scout? I would love to have one of those.

    If you're thinking of dabbling in the devil's own 9mm, how about a nice Custom Browning HP ? Pick up one of the Israeli imports and send it off to Williams or Garthwaites for a bit of spit and polish...and a CZ75 whilst you're at it

    I have given a Tactical Elite some thought, but I'm not looking for a full custom. A little more than I want to spend right now.

    I have a Novak BHP, but another BHP would be nice. A local shop just got a few in too.

    I'm in no rush here, I want to make the right choice.

    Geez, you're making it sound like all other 1911's are POS's compared to the Pro.

    Been there, done that. I've had major durability issues with 45acp Glocks. 9mm Glocks on the other hand have never failed me.
