Well CA, I know you are not made of money my friend. If the Cougar is fitting the bill now, and there are other issues that need addressing, love the one you are with.

Having said that, once the 1911 need firmly takes hold, it just can't seem to be satisfied with any other handgun. Have you checked the used market?? Times are tough, perhaps someone is looking at fire selling their beloved pistol to put some much need bread in the bank.

Sad. But true.

Yup, true enough J.D.

Money is very tight for us, so if I want something else, I have to sell something to put some cash toward the new one.

I had a Dan Wesson CBOB, and it was my favorite 1911 ever, but the money crunch forced me to sell it. Currently my only 1911 is my reworked Sistema Colt, and I'm very, very happy with it. I'm just thinking about something a bit smaller and slimmer for carry.

I don't have to do anything right now, but when I get the gun fever, things tend to happen.

I'm going to go to the shop I used to work at and look at a Colt and other Commander style pistols. There should be a decent selection there and I can do layaway.

If I buy one, I'll list the Beretta and accessories for sale on a couple of boards and see what happens.

I went to the shop this morning. They didn't have a single Commander size anything in the place.

I picked up three boxes of Blazer .45ACP while I was there.

It looks like I'll have the Cougar for a while. There isn't a Commander anything available other than some kind of Kimber for $1150. out at Sportsman's Warehouse. That kind of price is just completely out of the budget at this time.

I have an interview at the range for a part time job tomorrow, so I'll take the Beretta and get in some practice. If I'm going to have it for a while, I want to be proficient with it. It may turn out to be my carry sidearm when we get to Oregon.
