Deal Details

(my first deal post, go easy please)

Received a deal alert from Buds Guns yesterday. They have a TISAS Classic 1911-A1 45ACP 5" GI BLACK for $400 (cash & equivalent price) with free shipping. I'm a long time gun fan and I've never heard of TISAS, however the gun has many great reviews. Unfortunately the gun is NOT on the CA DOJ list so I can't purchase one.

Guns like this make me hate living in California. But when I see beautiful women left and right I realize it's not so bad here.

Yep, just bought one a few days ago. I can't find a better deal on a 1911, considering the gun is built better than most thousand dollar guns.

I would like to point out that it cost me $414.97 shipped.

The breakdown being:
Sub-Total: $399.00
Credit Card - NO cash discount: $11.97
Shipping to Indiana: 1 Gun Insured - (full refund/replace for items lost/damaged in shipping): $4.00

Translation - Gun is $410.97 to the 99% of us who are not going to stick 4 Franklins in an envelope and mail them to Kentucky...

Figure most slickdealers have a credit card that gives 2% cash back. I treat Bud's surcharge closer to 1% since I'd be giving up that 2% for the cash discount.

I think you can do a bank draft, but you have to wait for a week for it to clear. And it is not really a buds surcharge it is a credit card fee, that visa and mastercard scoop up.

My recommendation is looking at ATI. They make a very good 1911 for a similar price. I've seen them for $399-450....but have heard some folks were selling them lower a few years ago.

They are actually built a little tighter than a Springfield. (meaning the parts are machined with less play/variance) We compared them to 2 or 3 different 1911s and were very impressed with the quality for the money. If you have the opportunity to check one out, do it. I'm wishing I had bought one a few years ago, but never had much desire for a 45 because of the cost per round. I like shooting paper and feel that my 9mm would do just as good at stopping an intruder as a 45.

This looks like a great deal. For those of us stuck in California there's also the Rock Island Armory (RIA) 1911's that can be found for $450 and up. The come in all sorts of flavors like GI, Tactical, Commander, etc.

OMG, lets not turn this into a discussion on best calibers for home defense. Even the EXPERTS argue on the subject.
