My best friend got tired of looking too. He was number 7 on a waiting list at a LGS, with no indication when a shipment would ever come in. Just by chance, I was in a LGS last week and saw a brand new Colt Commander .45 (the 1991 Model). This is the pistol he originally wanted, but you couldn't find them either. I asked the sales clerk when that Colt came in. He said yesterday. So I called my friend and he was in the store within an hour. He picks that puppy up tomorrow...takes his concealed carry course next week. He's really happy, but still wouldn't have minded having the SR1911.leathersmith said:I got tired of looking and waiting for SR 1911. Picked up a Springfield Range Officer, which are a little hard to get also.
IMHO, Ruger really screwed up the production of this fine handgun. I hear they are working around the clock to make them, but they really should have had a big supply on-hand before they went on the market.
