    So am I missing something here? :dunno: I get home from the station this morning and log into to GT to check pm's, go to the for sale forum and there's like (6) TRP's for sale, and they're all SS to boot. Does anyone besides me find this odd? :dunno:

    Six people are selling TRP's.There's probably 6000 people selling Glock 19's. So what ?

    You have a bad night bro? WTF are you so pissy about?

    You can't throw a rock without hitting a Glock. A glock is an affordable duty pistol.

    A SA TRP is a semi-custom 1911 which if bought for full retail costs $1300+ depending where you go, and if you can find one. The SS models are harder to find and get an even higher premium.

    So yeah when I see 6 TRP all in SS for sale one one forum it calls my attention. My local LE dealer only gets between 3-5 per YEAR.

    Thanks for your input.

    WTF Bro ? I'm not the one that's gettin' "pissy" ! All I'm sayin is what's the big deal ? Guns are bought sold and traded every single day.Semi custom guns too, not just "affordable duty guns".
    Damn Dude ! Did I strike a nerve or what ? Got a raging case of "I shouldn't have sold my TRP" blues or what ? :faint:

    :agree:

    Exactly what I have done.
    I've sold SS TRP and Kimber Warrior.
    Now I enjoy my two Baers: Premier II and TRS. :supergrin:

    It sounds like a bad time to put mine up for sale. I've had it for almost a year and have never shot it.

    Or a little more and gotten a Brown :supergrin:

    That being said I have always had a good opinion of the TRP. Must just be a fluke of timing with so many being for sale.

    Why so many pissing matches on the forum lately?! :dunno:



    Here's my take on the Springers

    Many were possibly bought when the "ban craze" was in full swing.
    Economy sux now, worse than before. Many may now be faced with
    financial problems and need money.

    Or they saw the light and are selling to buy an Ed Brown! :rofl:

    Why can't we all just get along :tongueout:

    I sold my S & W 1911 Target before Christmas for Bills and Christmas :crying:

    Great Gun, never a problem :supergrin:

    I now want either a TRP or Kimber Tactial Custom II HD (Steel Frame)

    Night Sights, Ambi Safety (Lefty), 5" Gov't Model, Front Strap Checkering...

    To hijack this thread...........:wavey:

    Which would you choose, or something in this price range.

    I do not have extra money to add to it to get this or that,

    (Insert your favorite gun here)

    Serious responses, please.

    I was pretty stunned by the coincidental listing of 6 TRPs also. Wondered if there was a mass flaw unknown to most of us on what I've thought to be a fine weapon. Not perfect.

    The one thing that actually keeps a lot of genuinely informed people from participating here is a lack of civility among the members.
    That's why I don't post/participate often. I have zero patience for rude.
