Since 2011 is the centennial of the Colt 1911 I decided it was time to buy a Colt 1911. And as I already have a few 1911 patterns in 45ACP it would be the time for something a bit different, a 38 Super. Went to the gun show in New Bern this weekend and what do I find on the first table but a Series 80 in 38 Super for $890. After looking it over and a bit of dickering it was mine for $800. Then to top it off I found 200 rounds of 38 Super for less than $100, all in all a nice weekend, now I just have to make a trip to the range for a test drive.
