    Well guys, I have been in a rut the past couple weeks. I am still waiting on my SR1911 to ship (it may still be a couple months). I went on Buds, GunsAmerica, Gunbroker, and Centerfire Systems trying to find something that struck my fancy. I was intrigued at the prospect of buying a Colt LE6920 from Buds for investment purposes. From what I understand, Colt will no longer be producing the "Law Enforcement" marked ARs for the civilian market. I kept that thought in the back of my mind all day today. This evening, when I went back on Buds, I found an American Classic Trophy in Hard Chrome. It is a beautiful pistol. I also came across an American Classic Commander in Hard Chrome. The AC Trophy was only available to VIP members, so I became a Buds VIP member. Needless to say, I will have two American Classic 1911s headed my way this week.

    Here are a couple pics from Buds.

    Congrats, James.

    I've been considering an AC Trophy as well.

    Way to go James. I'm a big fan of Metro Arms. I'm hoping that the bobtail in hc isn't to hard to get hold of when it comes out later this year. You could by it for me as I need a gun to shoot.:cool: Give us a range report as soon as possible.

    I'm gonna go and assume you can afford all these guns because you drive a 1993 Honda.

    Can we see a picture of this Accord?

    Perhaps parked on some red landscaping bark?
