    Saw a listing in the want ads,......

    Looking for a mint, pre owned Pt1911 in stainless. Rail preferred but not deal breaker.

    Possible trade for a 92Fs or M&P9 FS with Night Sites or just tsraight up cash.


    Part with a 92fs or a M&P9 for a PT1911?! :dunno:
    What say Yee?

    The M&P 9 would be the only of those three that I would even consider owning, but none of those three really do anything for me personally....

    I've already got a Beretta 92, so I won't trade my alumunium rail Taurus.

    Nice over-reaction to that which did not take place.

    Not a real fan of the M&P,.....but I would not trade it for a PT1911.
    Caliber does nothing for you if you are trading DOWN in quality. :dunno:

    Not bashing,.....just do not understand why someone would trade DOWN.
    I would not trade a Impala for a KIA,....would you?

    Ok,...I see what you are TRYING to say,.....
    I have no "insecurities" with the PT1911,
    I just have no use for the Taurus POS! It's just that simple.
    I'd have more faith in a Stanley 20 ounce claw hammer.

    Having owed the Beretta, and handled/shot the M&P... I'd take a chance on the PT1911! :supergrin:
