My birthday is coming up, y'all...

What? it's only $6600.

I ponied up some bucks for Marko to buy some fine hootch for his celebration of completing another journey 'round the Sun, but I'm afraid this is a bit outside my price range, even for the World's Most Dangerous Librarian!

Breda said...

oh, poo.

Alan said...

That is one pretty 1911.

John B said...

I have to say, even if that thing went out and did the shooting proactively, six large is too much. Besides, I were trying to kick off the "Buy Breda a Garand" campaign.

You'd then be the only librarian with "Garand Thumb".....

Greyhawk said...

I gotta say, Breda, I like the way you dream.

Maybe next year. (^_^)V

That is quite pretty.

I'd kick in $20 on that. you must have more than 300 followers. Breda needs a 1911.

Damn you Breda for posting this and feeding my new-found 1911 lust.

I kinda wished I hadn't fondled the SA 1911's in Charlotte.

Old NFO said...

I'll throw $20 at it... :-) Although I'd get an Ed Brown or C&S before I'd get that one...

BANG THAT TIP JAR LIKE A SCREEN DOOR IN A HURRICANE!

Breda said...

You guys - this was NOT a bleg. I meant it as a joke.

But thank you so much all the same. :)

Heck of a nice gun, but I'd be pretty hard pressed to buy a gun I wasn't willing to shoot.

Y'know what's kinda cool? Clint Smith carries his. It's all scuffed up and stuff. :)

falnfenix said...

GOD that's pretty.

Breda said...

I would carry it and shoot it and love it forever and ever!

Did it MY way said...

And I thought $1500.00 was high for my Colt Dragon. Yes I shoot the hell out of it.

See Ya.

Excelent gun store in Houston, if you are ever in the neighborhood it is worth a look.
they carry more 1911's than most gun stores carry handguns.

*repost from above.
My mistake for clicking post and then reviewing comment, sorry.

"Y'know what's kinda cool?"

"Kinda" nothing! That is just plain awesome.

I knew a guy who would buy high dollar knives and then chuck 'em at his gravel driveway.

The first scratch is the hardest. After that it's almost fun.

If I spent that much on a pistol I'd carry mine too.
