I just paid $500 for my like new Springer mil-spec so with the budget you mentioned you'll have lots left over for ammo...

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

It's quite possible that Cane is a Colt fan. Really hard to tell though due to the inherent subtlety of his posts...

Where in Ft. Worth? I might drag myself out there if it is going to be a good one. The last show at Dallas Market Hall was a pretty big disappointment.

Will Rogers on Saturday and Sunday. I've never been, but it's supposed to be a good one. Only happens there twice a year.

I say get another of the previously listed so that you can get a double shoulder harness and have matching 1911's, one for each hand.
