So i havnt even received the guns yet,and got an offer to trade.No pictures,i dont have it yet and only got to hold it,but im getting ahead of myself.

Yesterday im hanging out at a 'celebrity gunshop',little known expensive place.Talking about how the double behind-the-back holster feels like ****.No way i can carry like that.Owner says "Ive been thinking about carrying two guns.Wanna trade them TRPs for a Wilson?" I was like,i know their expensive but that just doesnt sound fair,two guns for one.

He pulls it out and unloads it.Offers to trade me the Bill Wilson carry 1911,holster,knife and fresh box of ammo for the two Springfields.

So i just looked up the products,and HOLY CRAP i feel good.Going tonight to get the paperwork done.When the TRPs get delivered the trade will be complete.

Im so excited! Heres the link for the Wilson site and what i looked up.

EDIT:

The gun is not new,has about 200 rounds through it.I know the guy,i trust him,he takes care of his things.

Forgot to mention the upgrades he spec'd.Bullet Proof pack with ambi safety,and tritium sights.

I would do it if the Wilson is brand new. In fact I trade 2 Springfield loaded models for a Les Baer. Was so pleased with it I traded a pair (ranger 2's) for another Baer.

Congratulations!

Congrats..I think:dunno:
So you don't have the TRPs yet? But you traded them for a WC? I guess I am a little confused here. Your first sentence says "I haven't received the gunsyet. Where are the TRPs being delivered to? Either way congrats. As long as your happy then :thumbsup:

Safe to assume the TRP's are new and waiting for delivery to the OP, and then he'll trade them for the BWC.

The whole time they were and still are being delivered to that same gun shop,certified dealer.I have a TRP with rail and armory coat.Planned on trading up for two stainless models,but since i knew what a TRP felt like i was in love with the Wilson.This guy literally has at least one 1911 from every known manufacturer.S&W,Colt,LAR,Desert Eagle,STI,Fusion,you name it.He has a Wilson Classic and was looking for a matching pair of 1911s.His side of the trade included the $400 knife and holster.

Maybe i should include every detail in the first post?

It's in perfect condition. I traded him a G20 and G29 for it. Now he can use them as artillery.... :whistling:

I'm still as confused as hell as to why your dealer wouldn't buy 2 of his own TRPs at dealer cost rather than trade you his BWC, knife, zippo whatever........or why he's thinking of carrying 2 TRPs....odd enough that even one person in any given zip code would consider it......

I guess I'll have to keep pocket carrying a siaga12 for now. (Or whatever other rediculious options have already been discussed.)

if you are going to use two guns, clearly the best method would be to conjoin them.

And then plonk on a large red dot sight.

anything less is for weak bladdered old school ma'ams, girl guides with puny wrists and the French.
