    Rhome made me do it!!

    I happened to be in a nice gunstore in the mountains yesterday, and they had a great price on a fully equipped Springfield Armory 1911. I mentioned it to Rhome last night, and he called me today to tell me that he was at our favorite range (The Range, in Fresno), and had negotiated a better deal on the same toy. I just happened to drop by (actually, I was parking when I realized I had accidently driven to the Range), and Rhome greeted me with a "look what I did for/to you" look. I don't need another 1911; I have 4. A fog passed over me, and I signed some paperwork, had thumbprints taken, and the next thing I know, I own a Springfield Armory PX0109L!! I don't even know how it happened! Rhome made me do it!! It is sweet, though; ambidextrous safety, night sights, all the toys. I will probably forgive Rhome eventually...

    Thumbs up

    Sometimes a person is not fully aware of just how necessary it is to own a certain, specific firearm until an astute and kindly friend snatches you a better deal on it.
    Now, I'm certain you realize just how much you absolutely needed it in the first place.
    Congratulations! Enjoy your new purchase. I'm sure you will.

    Since Rhome made you do it does that mean Rhome is GIVING you the holster for it?

    Mark! Great idea! Wait, I think I have already tested a holster for a full sized 1911, which, of course, I got to keep. I guess I should go look...

    Sure wish the gun store I frequent could get Springer 1911's I want one and they seem to be on back order for forever because of the increase in production of those lil Plastic thing-a-mig-jiggers they've been making ( shot em dont care or em personally)lets stick to some good ol cold steel with plastic g10 or wood... only on the grips of the gun
