    It followed me home Can I keep It

    I had been planning to look for a Les Baer at the show this weekend. I had to visit the local gunshop to send out a couple of guns that I sold on the web to finance the new 1911. So while I was there I told him that I was Baer hunting and asked if he had any. The answer was no, but maybe you would be interested in this. He went in the back and came out with a Wilson Combat CQB with wilson adjustable night sights and the bag and 3 mags. The gun was in like new shape and in unfired condition and the test target was dated 06/06. I was hoping for a Baer and wound up with a Wilson. The man sure works in Mysterious ways.

    I would definitely keep it, but if you don't want to, drop it off by my place. I'll take excellent care of it.

    Very nice 1911!!

    In my opinion that was a lateral move to even better!

    Enjoy, that is an awesome 1911.

    "It followed me home Can I keep It"

    Only if you clean it and take it out for exersize regularly. Other wise we'll have to take it away and give it to a good home.........like mine!

    NO!

    It is an ugly, smelly gun that will only give you problems and heartache! It might give you cancer, gout, smelly feet and halitosis! So no you shouldn't keep it.

    And just to show you want a good friend I am, you can send it to me and I will keep it for you. I know, I know, I'm a good guy, what can I say? But darn it, I just want to help people.

    So box it up and ship that bucket here.

    Seriously, enjoy it and let us know how it does.

    NO NO NO !!! you dont want to keep it NEW Wilsons are like those copper bracelets but worse. It'll turn your skin green like the bracelets but it will also give you gang-green in your hands and trigger fingers and make them fall off!!!!!!!
    Box it up and send it to me I'll be a good sport and get all the horrrible microbes and bacteria off of it and once my hands fall off, I'll have the old lady box it up and send it back to you Gang-green causing bacteria free

    You don't want that dirty old gun. Like everyone says, it'll stain your skin, make you sick and God only knows what else.

    So you sure don't want to keep it. Just send it to me, and when I've rendered it safe for you to have to keep, I'll send it back to you.

    Just make sure I spell your name right in my Will....

    The 'Wilson' should help a little with the 'No Baer' sadness...
