    upper tier 1911s

    Thanks everyone. I got to look at some yesterday. The way I saw them is Baer has a superb finish for the price, STI just not what I am looking for, didn't see any Browns, Wilson's are nice but expensive, Nighthawk was impressive but couldn't find one with the new optic cut. For me the Wessons have a lot going for them for the price. The only thing I fell for was a Wilson EDC X9. I got to hold a couple and although nice the trigger is not as good as my Wessons. Fit and finish was good but not Baer smooth. What got me was the feel in the hand and capacity. I appreciate the store that had the Wilson in stock letting me look but being $200 over list and getting but hurt and walking off when I said I would have to save up for one of these took purchasing one from them off the table. Wife had picked out a $500 gun she had been looking for and I was going to buy it for her but they didn't want to waste any more time on us so we left empty handed. Does everyone in Franklin just drop $3000+ on the counter in 5 minutes on a weapon they had just held for the first time without a little research? Oh well I will say again I do appreciate them letting me look. All said it was a productive rainy day.

    NickinTN. Good to see you back of the buying side. Enjoying the ECO enough I bought a Valkurie cco and a Valor vbob commander. If I get in the selling mood you are first in line.

    Yeah I see the one in the classified add but at this time I just want to hold one and see if it is what I want to save for. 3 Dan Wessons in 2 months is stretching the budget. I would not ask someone with one for sale to show me theirs knowing I am not in the position to purchase.

    Gary you are right. I picked up a Dan Wesson ECO a couple of months ago from a member here.
  5. All. I am looking to make a gun shopping loop through Middle Tennessee South of Nashville this Saturday. Does anyone have any recommendations for stores that stock Dan Wesson, Night Hawk, Wilson, Ed Brown or others like these. I would really like to put my hands on a Wilson EDC X9 if possible. I'm just tired of looking at the same old guns if you know what I mean.
  6. I am in Greenfield do you think we could get together sometime Sunday? I would like to take a look. Thanks
  7. I'll take it if we can work out a place to meet. Murfersbro maybe? I'm off till the first of the year. 731-431-7354 Thanks.
  8. Any interest in driving a reasonable distance to the west? I live all the way in the NW corner. Could meet somewhere in the middle. I have been looking at putting a red dot on for a while.
  9. put me down for one lower and one upper depending on price.
  10. Had the same thing happen to a buddy of mine. He called me to come get him as the officer would not let him ride the bike off and was going to have it towed. When I got there I asked the officer if I could take the bike home for him and he said sure. I informed him that I did not have a helmet with me and he said you can just use the one your buddy was wearing. (the one he has getting the ticket for) Talk about messed up. He got a helmet ticket and I got to ride off with the same helmet and no ticket.
  11. I had to do the same thing but I refused to leave a handgun with someone that I did not know. They allowed me to keep it in my pocket for the test. I might trust them with the money in my wallet but not with something they could kill someone with. Can you see the lawsuit coming from just handing a loaded gun to a stranger?
  12. I hope the officers that stood with the governor when he vetoed allowing us to carry, also stand up against their own officers doing the same.
  13. Just shows how dumb some people are. If this "gang banger" could get a HCP he could have walked into any store and purchased a firearm just like the rest of us. He was the clean one for his group, he could have purchased dozens of firearms legitimately. He screwed up, he was stupid. Good thing for us, crooks are so dumb. Glad he was caught before he had a chance to use the weapon on some innocent victim.
  14. Just for information I sent in my renewal paperwork on Feb 6th and it came in the mail April 26th. So a little less than 3 months.
