I almost came home with a Remington R1 "enhanced" pistol last week. It was in the case of my LGS where I shoot & buy guns. The range was filled up so I was "browsing". They had the R1 in with the other 1911 guns. I had it in my hand & it felt really good. They were asking $699 for it. But before I could get "I'll take it" out of my mouth, the salesman said "Oh, wait a minute, we just got in a Springfield Range Officer this morning. Let me show it to you." He came back over with it & as soon as I pulled the trigger I knew I wanted it. The MSRP was $934 on the thing, but he looked at the back of the tag and said I'll sell it to you for $750. I bought it. I went straight to the range, oiled the rails & the barrel & shot 200 rounds through it without a single hiccup... Well, except my wife left her ring on her right hand and boogered up the front strap when she shot it.
I took it home and used a cold bluing pen on it to fix it. Only I can see the damager now. Oh well, it's just a gun...
...Ummm, that next to last line was supposed to say "Only I can see the damage now." It sounds like I snuffed out my wife the way it was mis-typed
