This came home with me today!
Very nice. Congrats on your purchase.
No more "Get me a beer and a sammich" in that house.
You'll enjoy it. I love my Trophy Match. I like the sights on yours better though.
Excellent choice. You have reason to be pleased.
(How them sammich's coming?)
My SO keeps me in ammo. The sammiches are going to be turkey.
I can't wait to shoot it!
Nice pro. You're going to love it
I have guns that I like to shoot and I have a 1911 that I love to shoot. They are a sweet piece of iron.
I've been jonesing for a certain stainless cco. I'm so glad that I procrastinated on sending CJ a check.
If I would have had to pass on this today I would be crying tonight.
You're gonna love it!
Congrats! I don't know how you resisted going straight to the range immediately!!
I'm jealous as I sit here waiting for my Kimber Eclipse Pro II .45 cal that is on order.
Nothing worse than having to pass up what yu want or a good deal because you got something else.
The last time I did that it was in the 1911 area as a matter of fact.
couldn't find what I wanted so I spent more money on the next best that was actually "More" than I wanted for the purpose, only to find what I had been shopping for by coincidence 2 weeks later. I could have traded down but I would have lost A LOT of $$$$
It was nearly dark and I always clean and lube whatever I buy before I shoot it. I'll be heading there early tomorrow though!
I have an older plain ole Kimber Eclipse that has had a little work done and it's a sweet shooting gun. I hope that yours is all that you want it to be. Waiting stinks.
countrygun, 1911's are tricky. I just hope that this one is all that I've read that it is. I shot my TRP, yesterday and really enjoyed it. It will be fun to compare these two.
I bought this gun at my lgs on the way to a gun show.
It was kinda fun having dealers try and sell me something little and pink this afternoon. One guy tried to sell me a cap gun! I did enjoy the little red caps on a roll when I was about four or five though. I graduated to BB's when I was six and a Winchester 67 when I was nine.
Wow! My kind of woman.
Congratulations on an excellent purchase.
Congrats on a great 1911.
My wife has several .45s 1911 type and others and she collects and shoots generally S&W .357s. She was in the LGS picking up one not long ago. The LGS owner is a friend and also a neighbor. Some well meaning customer started in on her with the"'That's a pretty big gun for a little lady, maybe you should look at a .380" The owner of the shop just about busted a gut, when my wife looked down in the case at the .380 and said "Why would I want that? My Kimber .45 isn't much bigger and I can pack it all day".
She then launched on the guy with a lecture on why she prefers a 158gn KSWC in a .357 for blacktail deer ans opposed to a JHP or anything that generally feeds through an autoloader, although she might like a 10mm "like my husband's I could get one with a bit smaller grip".
I will spare the story of her CWP class
Congrats on the nice purchase.
Thanks for all of the great comments everyone!
We started watching a movie and finally I said 'oh hell,
I can't sit still. I have new gun fever!"
I'll be glad when Greg comes along. In a round about way he kept me from spending my $ on a Stinger. Then he posted the pics of the Pro he bought and...
ETA: countrygun sounds like your wife and I would have fun shooting together. I LOVE shooting .357 revolvers as long as the barrel isn't over 4". After that the balance is off for me.
She has a 4" 28, 66, 686, Ruger Gp-100, Taurus Tracker and a 2" J" frame "ladysmith .357, She has eyes on my 3" 65 but since we have the ladysmith J, and the 3913 LS I want to get her the 3" "ladysmith" 65.
we have ur own little range right out the front door. It it any wonder I consider reloading the .357 to be my "full-time job" ?
daYUmn.........you did very well!
You will love it, mine locks up like a bank vault and shoots like a
frickin lazer! One of the more impressive 1911s I've shot!
All I can say now is I've got .45 envy!
