    Not really, but knedrgr, another friend and I went the gunshow today and stopped to talk to rsxr22. They just took a Concept VIII in on a trade towards a Wilson Spec Ops. Was trying to get a friend to buy it because he was looking for a shiny 1911 (He has a thing for shiny guns). When i was walking away i threw a trade offer out, but after some thought i decided against it because if i ever get around to shooting IDPA the gun i would be trading would be good for production. I'm going to be in Kentucky this coming week, so i'll be stopping by Jet Guns and Bud's, which means i'll probably end up with something :rofl:

    This was also a decent show where (besides the Baer) there was a RRA ($2200 w/ CT grips), NH T3 (i think it was $2600), Wilson Professional ($2000), and Guncrafters Model 2 50GI hard chrome ($2700 w/ .45ACP conversion). I have to say that the GI was a great feeling gun and now makes me want a No Name.

    Forgot to add that our shiny gun friend bought a NIB Sig P238 HD for $499. When we first got to the show, he said that he was looking at one, then we saw one at one of the dealers that i know and she had one. While someone else was looking at it and asking if they had layaway, i told him that had his name all over it, then he pulled out his debit card and it was a done deal :rofl:

    well winter is coming to Cleveland, so it's pretty damn close :rofl:
     
  7. The dealer was trying not to crack up at the whole situation when the other guy was still fondling the P238. :rofl:.

    Holding that P238, I was expecting it to light a flame at the muzzle...it just looks like a lighter gun.
     
  8. Yeah, that RRA was nice looking. So was the T3, but for $2600, I expected it to feel a little better. Don't get me wrong, it was nice. Knock off another $400, it's a contender.

    That Guncrafter was in another league! Damn.

    there's no FCS, so he would be good.

    did you notice that my thumb went just past the muzzle when gripping it like my 1911's
     
  13. yeah :wow:

    that wasn't shiny enough for him.

    when we went and bought Rem700's, the shop had a mil-spec 5R (stainless) and a Tactical SPS (black). I told him that i would buy which ever he didn't want. He couldn't make up his mind, so i said the 5R. then while we were filling out the paperwork, he said he wanted the 5R because it was shiny. He still hasn't shot it, nor has he shot his Kimber CDP and we doubt that he'll shoot his P238. He bought a new Ducati last year and only put 70 miles on it this year too.

    so if anyone is looking for a CDP, i know of a NIB for $900, because he said he might go back to get the Baer tomorrow :rofl:
