I have playing w/the idea of moving up to a .45 acp for some time. So I was shopping for the the G30SF. Needless to say , GT has just about talked me out of it w/all the 30SF bashing, second only to G36 bashing I see. I also have always wanted a 1911 but you know they are not cheap. So I was going to the local shops and the G30SF was pricing right at $575-650. I was going to trade my G27 in to hep w/the $$ out of pocket. Well I am in a small mom and pop store that I really like. He informs me that they dropped stocking Glock Jan1 ..wow ok umm wow. He didnt give a reason. So he hands me a 1911 and gives a big smile. I grabed it for the first time and was just the look, the heft, feel, I was just blown away. Long story short, here it is. Everyone I have shown it too is blown away by it. Now I know why the .45ACP is called a "flying f** ashtray". I shot it last night and it was just amazing. The dealer threw in a 47D Wilson Combat mag to sweeten the deal.
