I've been hearing a lot about the Ruger drought lately but have not seen any evidence of one
Well, I've been on my LGS's "list" for an SR1911 for...let's see...I think this March will be three years.
You don't suppose there is some pent-up demand for that particular model, and you don't suppose they could sell every danged one they built if they kept just one production line running 24/7 for the next six months or so, eh?
Not like I really need
one, as I have other 1911s.
But I just finally saw my very first in-the-flesh SR1911 at the Dallas Market Hall gun show the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The seller was asking $799, and he may have gotten it (certainly not from me).
