Congrats robbo60, enjoy!!
You don't know how lucky you are....or maybe you do.

I decided to pull the trigger on a Kimber Stainless Target II.
The price, Kimber known for making fine competitive firearms, the looks...
yeah, I'll place my order today!! So after work I go to the bank and pull out some money and head to my favorite gun store to place my order.
The sales guy tells me that they're not taking any Kimber orders, because Kimber is backed logged on the .45ACP orders that they aren't even touching the 9mm's. "Probably will be a year before they can fill the order" the sales man says. I get home and call some other gun stores....same answer.

The quest continues....

Default The quest has ended

hey everyone-
just want everyone to know- I pulled the trigger this weekend and ordered my 1911 chambered in 9mm. I ordered it on the 4th....what a way to celebrate Independence Day... by ordering a new 1911.

Thanks for the help,
UnderFire

canebrake,
Thanks for the welcome!!
I'm really excited about my 1911 purchase.
Yeah, Colt not making a 9mm model ruled them out instantly.
Colt makes some superior firearms at a great price. I was tossing around the idea of .38 Super model for awhile...maybe one day.
In my neck of the woods 9mm(for practice & competition) is much more common.

After much research, traveling out of county to several gun shows, talking to several people (in person) about competition 1911's, on a $1100 budget....
I decided to go with......

Para-Ordnance
PXT 1911 Single-Action Single Stack
Product Code: PX189SR
Caliber: 9mm
Rounds: 10+1
Barrel: 5"
Weight: 40 oz.
Length: 8.5"
Height: 5.75"
Hammer: Spurred
Sights: Adj/Fiber-Optic
Receiver: Stainless
Finish: Stainless
Magazine: PNM9R
MSRP: $1,139.00

Throughout its history, Para has built a solid and enviable reputation for innovation, performance and reliability. Firearms enthusiasts, serious shooting competitors and law enforcement agencies can choose with confidence from a wide and growing variety of Para pistols.

The new patent pending Power Extractor™ (PXT™) takes the classic 1911 into the 21st Century. As Ted Szabo stated, "The new Para Power Extractor is the ultimate improvement to the 1911 design. This will really help all shooters to have the most reliable 1911 pistol, and I am proud to introduce it in our new series of Para PXT™ 1911 pistols. In fact, we have redesigned our entire line of pistols to incorporate this important new technology."
Glad to hear I'm accepted into the 1911 "fraternity", I was afraid most would feel that my 1911 is an outcast because it's not chambered in .45 cal.
ETA = August according to the store, but they can't give an exact date.
Once the distributor ships to them, they can deliver to me.
Out the door, I'm giving $1050, already plopped down 525 bucks.
No pics yet, but when I get it, I'll take & post some.

Congrats!!!!

Just watch the delivery time though. A friend ordered a Para a couple of months ago in a .45 Cal and has not gotten it yet. They told him one month also and he has now been waiting 2 1/2 months for it to arrive.
