So I walk into a local gun shop to pick up a few things and decide to take a look at the case just to see what they had (bad idea). I look down and whats the first thing I see? A brand new SR1911 for $699.
Handing it back to him and walking away actually hurt a little especially since I could have pulled the cash together and got it but I just don't think it would have been a smart move at this point in time.

Now I'm sad too. :(

But, it sounds like you made a wise decision for your situation. There will be another day.

I hear you, I'm at the point that I really have to justify any gun purchases, don't need any more rifles, and as far a handguns go I really have to have a specific need that what I already have won't cover.

Sad indeed. It also sounds like you have your priorities straight. Good for you.

WOW :eek: you are the man of steel. I can relate to and appreciate your disappointment in not walking out the door with that new SR1911. I just recently was able to come home with one after a lengthy period of "WANT".

I admire your stamina and I too believe you did the right thing and for doing so, I am sure the "Gun Gods" took a notice of your action and will in turn reward you soon with another opportunity. Keep your chin up and good luck!

I've been there before. When the sp101 .22 came out, I did not have the money. I got to touch one in the gunshop. When I had the money again, I could not find one. Now, I'm broke again, and I will probably find one.

Tough decision...but probably wise! I have been there on different guns...just wasn't the right time or the $$ were needed for other, more important things, like keeping the kids fed, doctor's appointments, eye exams, etc...
