    Thanks guys for the comments. I too am glad that one of our members bought it :supergrin:

    Spending that much on a gun was not even on the radar. However, getting a dud SRP was unlikely, and the price point was hard to beat. I put 250 rounds through it on Friday. It was my 2nd range trip of the day, so I only stayed fresh for about 30 minutes. During that time I felt like I was shooting laser beams. The accuracy of this pistol is ridiculous. Now if the shooter was a little more consistent...

    The SRP is exactly how everyone has described - a shooter's shooter. It's a no frills working gun. The checkering really grabs your hand, similar to my old TRP, but a little kinder. Even the trigger is a little grippier than I've experienced on others.

    A sincere thank you, Brian. You know it's good when even my wife approves :wavey:

    Well that's great, thanks.

    I'm so glad I posted it, as I really wanted one of us to pick up a world class 1911 at an unbeatable price. :) Its feels good to know it went to someone who will appreciate it. :wavey:

    Come on, you're only hurting yourself in the long run. :tongueout:




    Seriously, I think Baer may be the best built of the big five semi custom players, with Springfield Custom a very close second. I'm not saying they're as refined, but from a sheer build quality standpoint, they're hard to beat.

    some day, but don't think it would be the for the 40th b-day.

    maybe another Brown since i was born in Missouri, can get a custom serial number and laser engraving (if i choose to) :)

    if i choose a brown, it would be about a 90day wait anyways.

    How about an Infinity for something extra special befitting a 40 B-Day? :supergrin:

    Brandon Strayer is a great guy to do business with. Though being a ground up custom built to your specs, lead times are longer than an Ed Brown.

    Quack, with your knowledge, you would have an absolute BLAST with Infinity's Gunbuilder. :banana: You should try getting drawing one up and getting a quote for later reference, if nothing else. These guys build one hell of a 1911.

    My 40th is June 1, 2012. That's a good idea. Baer or Brown. Hmmmmm.

    I think to commemorate my 40th year walking God's green Earth, I will treat myself to something special. These are on the list of choices so far...
