    I am thinking about a new gun, keeping it hush from my girlfriend. I want a SA champion operator or champion TRP, has anybody shot one and give me reviews or feed back on them. It'll be my 3rd SA and 6th 45 acp. I'm liking what I am reading about them, except it will be a long wait for one.

    She is my daughter's mother, not just a girlfriend, but I agree if she were just a girlfriend she'd be gone.

    I'm gonna by the gun, I was asking about the SA champion operator or champion TRP. I've been buying guns before I met her and I will after she is gone.

    I believe the TRP is near the very top of SA's 1911 models. I'm not a SA fan, but I would venture a guess that the TRP would be better than the Champion.

    Good luck on your purchase. I don't have experience with the Champion Operator or Champion TRP, but there is another SA Champion model I have fired- the Loaded Champion, which is also a .45. I own an older model in stainless steel. (It was customized a bit by the previous owner- he put a short G.I. style guide rod in.) It's my first gun and a lot of fun to shoot. I looked online and the Champion TRP seems very hard to find and considerably more expensive than the Operator.

    She is the only girl I've dated that is scared of guns. I hope that's not a genetic feature, cause I want my daughter to go to the range with me. I took her mom once and that was a mistake that wont be repeated. I took my Colt government and Glock 22, and when she fired them she closed her damn eyes and almost dropped my pistols. If I take her out again, it will be with a gun she bought. I don't own 22 anymore, but maybe that's what I should have started her with. She is 5'3" and 120#s, the girl before her was the measurements and she had a G22 and she liked my 45s.

    Just for argument sake, should I have started shooting something smaller or just keep the guns away from her? I'm thinking keep them away from her, cause she is a girlie girl.

    I'm leaning 90/10 towards the champion operator, because of price and availability. I'm thinking it might be an a Christmas and birthday present to myself.

    I take my testicles out of her purse when she's not looking, lol. Mine won't give me money for guns, but she did say she'd pay for half of my AR build, I think that's better than her going to the range with me.

    If you're going halfsies...make sure you put some good glass on it.
    Maybe something that rhymes with Trijicon. :)

    She won't give you money? Is this her money or does she take your money? Think you might have bigger problems than hiding a gun purchase from her.

    My money is mine and hers is hers. She just won't do it for guns, she thinks I have to many, at least I'm not collecting mistresses or porn. I have a hobby and she doesn't, that's not my fault. I should give her a hobby, like collecting ammo.

    I was thinking Burris xtreme 1-4x24 with fast fire reflex on top. Not as much as a rhymes with trijicon, nice set up.
