1911 heaven
#1
Stopped by the show in Warminster this afternoon. By percentage, I don't think I've seen so many 1911's for sale in one place at one time.

Counted at least two vendors selling the always-back-ordered SR1911 at un-inflated take it home today prices not above MSRP (If you want one, get thee down there first thing in the AM).

Other than that, large variety of brands and qualities. The explanation I heard was that so much of other stuff had sold out to first-time buyers, the 1911s have been left behind.

Thank god I didn't find one in 9mm, other than a beautiful relic, or I'd have been in trouble.

There was a reasonable amount of ammo there, with 9mm, .380ACP, and some .223 at only moderately-inflated prices. Many vendors were doing the "price includes tax" thing.

There weren't a lot of people there between 2-3PM; nor did there seem to be any shortage of merchandise. If you went looking for something in particular, you'd likely have found it, in the "reasonable" ball-park.

Of course, my g/f, who'd never been to a gun show before, has now gone bonkers for the look and feel of the 1911s and on top of that has got her heart set on a 22/45 LITE. Not to mention the difficulty of prying her away from the high-end cutlery.

And of course, she wants the commemorative Colt 1911 (original model), which comes in gov't style wax paper in an inner box contained within the outer box, but can't understand why the vendor was saying "you might not want to use this as a frequent shooter."

My friend went to that show. He got a few boxes of 9mm FMJ and HPs and a couple knives. He didn't really comment on specific firearms and prices (he likes guns, but he isn't into them like we are here). Right now I am not in the market for any new firearms, but I could use more 9mm FMJ, a box of 115 grain +p+ 9mm for my new pistol, an owb holster for my new pistol, and a spare mag carrier.
