The 1911 shaped hole in my heart...
 
I had to part with my first and only RIA 1911 tactical about a year ago to pay of some credit card debt (in college $ seems to just spend itself :D). It had left a hole in my heart that only a 1911 could fill. I've got about $1,100 saved up now. I've been looking at the Springfield Armory 1911 loaded in stainless. Would you guys say $830 shipped+FFL tranfered is fair? Or should I get something else? I don't like the idea of spending all of the $1,100 on a gun I would like to save some for ammo and good magazines.

thanks guys
:)

I sent you a PM with an address to a GA site that has lots of guns listed. You may find exactly what you're looking for locally...

Junho, that is basically what I got mine for. I was gonna have it shipped, so I called a dealer close to here. Turns out, he had one and cut a deal that was roughly equal to the price + transfer. Two weeks later, I saw the exact same package at a gun show for $1000 cash. :eek:

I just sold two new black stainless loaded Springers for $869.00 each and they are real scarce right now. I think your about to make a very good deal.

Save a little more,,,,,, and get a TRP. You won't regret it.

If it makes you feel any better Junho, I have had a 1911 sized hole in my heart for the past two years and still haven't filled that void because of college. Graduate school expenses suck. :(

Anyway, as some others have suggested if I were you I would save just a little more and get a TRP instead of just a Loaded. If you are going to go with style, then go all the way. ;)
