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.

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.
Centerfiresystems has those Rock Islands for $419 on backorder, compact for $399 also on backorder. As long as it is on the list for Cali, they will ship to you according to the website. Other than the recent ammo price gouging, they have been pretty decent to deal with.

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.

That and the weather is the only thing preventing me from moving to a more gun friendly state.

Move to Texas carry and own whatever weapon you like. Also NO state income tax in Texas!
Louisiana is getting ready to do away with state income tax. And Louisiana has no rules on what you can own in the weapon line. Additional in Louisiana we have a shoot the intruder law. Yes, I know that New Orleans is one of the most dangerous cities in the US. But north of Lake Pontchartrain and the City we all carry and the homicide rate in very low and it is mostly domestic.

Pennsylvania is exactly the opposite...very relaxed gun laws and beautiful women are few and far between.

personally Id rather have a rock island armory 1911 for about the same money.

lots of claims about the quality of this gun, but lots of reports of failure too.
id stick to a known quantity and made in USA

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.
That's true, but most businesses just accept it as a cost of doing business. Buying a $400+ item from a retailer who then passes on their card processing fees is a little lame IMO, but I understand that's how Bud's has been charging for years, so at least it's not a surprise charge for folks.

Please don't promote the stereotype that gun-friendly states only have hillbilly, crooked eyed, buck teethed women. I like my southern girls. drool

Please stop feeding the troll. Can't the mods delete posts that are irrelevant to the deal posted?

What 1911(s) are different from other hand guns?

I have Glock 19 & XD9.

It's just a simple question. I am new to hand guns and want to learn. Not any other meaning behind it. Please don't turn this into something else. Thanks
