The "bac1023 made me buy this" picture thread

just curious what everyone has bought after seeing/talking to him.

He said that once I go with semi-custom 1911's, I'll never go back.
He was right, my previous "expensive" handguns were a TRP and EMP

my 1st high end (not really a semi) purchase since talking to bac1023 was a 2011, though he doesn't have one.

Then i was hooked. The next was a Wilson, which was too good of a deal to pass up.

Content for a while i was still lacking a Commander size. Got to fondle a KC, and ended up buying it

The rarity of the TGO1, qualitty of the Springfield Custom Shop and the deal i got at Bud's made me bring this home.
1911 Forums

I'm already planning on having a 1911 built by Springfield's Custom Shop.

To save Bac from posting all his pics, you can go HERE or HERE

Bac's pics definitely had a hand in this Norinco 1911a1 trade that I recently made.

Every time I see that pic I wonder how you ended up with a Wilson that has a seven inch barrel.

Bac talked me to choosing a this over a Dan Wesson.

He convinced me that I wanted to go with a semi-custom maker.
