We finish up and the boys headed out ahead of me as I stayed a while and talked with some of the guys in the store (all ARFCOM members ) and as I was getting ready to leave I stopped at the end counter just to peruse the 1911 selection and what to my tired old peepers see..........?

A like new Springfield TRP-PRO, yes the same custom shop built 1911 that the FBI HRT uses.
There it lay in all it's Black T finished glory with a price tag of......... $1059.00

My Visa came out of my wallet so fast it scorched the leather

Holy crap. Methinks some gun shop employee doesn't know the difference between a TRP and TRP Pro. That said, great find. Wanna make a quick $100?

What, you don't know how to IM somebody who REALLY needs something like that? Steve doesn't need any more of those things!

SGB, I would head straight for Vegas after finding a deal like that.

Not enough to have all the arfcommers drooling eh? 1911 Forums.

I don't blame you man. I'd be walking on cloud 9 for weeks if I scored that deal.

Enough talk, more range report
