Whats your budget?

scherfinator 10-09-2010 02:34 AM

trying to stay under $1000

If $1000 dollars is your limit I would hold off and save $200 more and buy the Springfield Armory TRP. You won't regret the purchase. Here is mine.

I picked up a NIB Stainless Colt Gold Cup Trophy for less than $1000 on GunBroker. Was right at $1000 with shipping and transfer.

Springfield SRVC TGT 45SS Package $823.00 SHIPS FREE

Beautiful gun. I might have to plan a trip down to Key West to have a beer with you and shoot that puppy.

Is this the one you use for competition? :)

I got a Kimber for light sale that is well under $1000 if you are interested. :D

Look at the used market in your area. With the economy the way it is, there are deals out there if you are willing to make a few calls and do a bit of driving.
