    just curious what everyone has bought after seeing/talking to him.

    He said that once I go with semi-custom 1911's, I'll never go back.
    He was right, my previous "expensive" handguns were a TRP and EMP

    my 1st high end (not really a semi) purchase since talking to bac1023 was a 2011, though he doesn't have one.

    Then i was hooked. The next was a Wilson, which was too good of a deal to pass up.

    Content for a while i was still lacking a Commander size. Got to fondle a KC, and ended up buying it

    The rarity of the TGO1, qualitty of the Springfield Custom Shop and the deal i got at Bud's made me bring this home.

    I'm already planning on having a 1911 built by Springfield's Custom Shop.

    Bac's pics definitely had a hand in this Norinco 1911a1 trade that I recently made. :)

    Every time I see that pic I wonder how you ended up with a Wilson that has a seven inch barrel. :supergrin:

    Bac talked me to choosing a this over a Dan Wesson.

    He convinced me that I wanted to go with a semi-custom maker.
