Well guys, I have been in a rut the past couple weeks. I am still waiting on my SR1911 to ship (it may still be a couple months). I went on Buds, GunsAmerica, Gunbroker, and Centerfire Systems trying to find something that struck my fancy. I was intrigued at the prospect of buying a Colt LE6920 from Buds for investment purposes. From what I understand, Colt will no longer be producing the "Law Enforcement" marked ARs for the civilian market. I kept that thought in the back of my mind all day today. This evening, when I went back on Buds, I found an American Classic Trophy in Hard Chrome. It is a beautiful pistol. I also came across an American Classic Commander in Hard Chrome. The AC Trophy was only available to VIP members, so I became a Buds VIP member. Needless to say, I will have two American Classic 1911s headed my way this week.

Here are a couple pics from Buds.

I really like my DS.

Way to go James. I'm a big fan of Metro Arms. I'm hoping that the bobtail in hc isn't to hard to get hold of when it comes out later this year. You could by it for me as I need a gun to shoot.:cool: Give us a range report as soon as possible.

I'm gonna go and assume you can afford all these guns because you drive a 1993 Honda.

Perhaps parked on some red landscaping bark?

Okay. Here are some pics of some pics I took several years ago. The car was since upgraded with a different set of wheels and tires and a splitter was also added. I sold the Accord in 2005.

Holy cow!

That Accord looks like it had some money in it! I dig the H3.

Murdered out. Just like I like. :cool:

When I sold it, I had close to $45K into it. Almost $10K into the audio/visual system alone. I bought the car new in June 1993. I started customizing it in 1996. Over the years, it accumulated over 50 show trophies (1st place mostly, some 2nd place, and a couple BOS).

By the looks of that car you must be a fast and furious fan. :tongueout: I would have you figured for a 67 camaro. Love the hummer. Side note, handled a coonan .357 today. $1599 and $1600 out the door if I did cash. Duracoat finish is what I was told. Nice gun.
