Cundiff5535 Posted February 5, 2014 Share Posted February 5, 2014 Hey gang, I am in a situation that is killing me. I lost my job last March and have not found anything... I think I have applied for a million jobs at this point. To make a long story shot, my firearm collection is basically a built in bank account and although I have some firearms that will not ever be sold, I have many that will. In saying that, I am going to be/have sold off a lot lately:( I have talked it over with the wife and decided that I will sell a few more and pick up 1 1911/2011. I know I am talking to a bunch of gamers here so, the answers will probably be slanted in that direction but, I wanted to get some thoughts from you all! I dont really compete and given the financial situation, I probably will not this summer. In saying that I do want to buy a 1911 or 2011. I have many S/A and Kimbers and those have either been sold or, are going to be sold. I have around 4-5k in "gun fund" to pick up 1 high end pistol. Since this doesn't need to be a gamer gun, I have lots of choices! I have been going back and forth about the following but am keeping an open mind on all recommendations. Thought 1: Send my Kimber Team Match to Chuck Rodgers for a full custom job. This was the first firearm I ever bought and it will never be sold. It would be pretty cool to have a master like Chuck put his spin on the first pistol I had ever pick up. Thought 2: Call Joe Chambers and ask him what he can do in the price range I have Thought 3: Call SVI and have a pow-wow with Brandon about a build. Thought 4: Talk to Ned Christensen about the same. Thought 5: Buy either a Wilson, NH, Crafter, or Brown and save the rest... and then buy a few more semi-custom's more once I find a new job. I am open to any other thoughts? I am sure I will hear buy a CZ... I already own a CTS Custom, SP01 Shadow T, and a custom 75. I do not need another one of these. I maybe in over my head price wise but, I can probably make it work with a few other pistol sales... To add to that, I want this pistol to be a total tack driver, Awesome Range Toy, something fun as hell to shoot and show off with, a pistol that will retain value, and to be able to feel somewhat satisfied that I bought it since I have to sell around 30 pistol in the next month or so.... DAMN All help and thoughts are very much appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
