I don't own a Les Baer, but I've shot a friend's. It was outstanding. Now I wasn't shooting an accurate gun (S&W 411), but the difference was staggering.

We were at about 15-20 yds. My 411 was all over the paper. Then my friend handed me his Les Baer. I shot a 6" group. Quality really does make a difference.

The 411 got traded.

I have Baers all have the 1 1/2" upgrade.
For me they are worth the $$$$
I shoot at 25 meters most of my range sessions..

Just put a deposit down on a Les Baer today. My fav gun shop had one in on consignment, and they let me put a small amount down to hold it. The owner just said "Eh, pay me when you can, I'll hold it."

So in about 2 or 3 months a very slightly used Baer will be in the safe... can't wait.

The automobile metaphor obviously has merit. I really want a new Dodge Charger (what? $30,000 fully loaded?). It has class and power. Others may really want a Viper ($90,000). It has more class and a lot more power.

The Viper is definitely worth the extra money, but not to me. First, I don't have enough money for it to be worth it. But to someone who has the money, they will definitely notice the differences in torque and handling.

My 1911's right now are like a Dodge Caliber ($18,000), with some decent power, keeps me safe in a crash, and everything works really well as I get from point a to point b.

But go for the Viper!!

I have an Ed Brown Kobra carry in .45, a CZ-Dan Wesson C-BOB in 10mm, Springers, Para's, as well as an RIA.

Even thought the Ed Brown and the Dan Wesson have the same features, there is world of difference between how each have been assembled.
