Say what again? How much?
Pricing, Cooper said, is expected to be between $800-$1,000 for shooters.
“It’s hard to say exactly, but a good guess will be around $1,000 minimum,” he said. “One reason for this is that the 1911 is a very valuable pistol. Even though they may be shot out or busted up, we don’t want them falling into the hands of people who will just leave them in a glove box. We want a perceived value — more of an heirloom. We don’t want them considered a standard sidearm. All we need is to have someone commit a liquor store robbery with one and then we’ll be held accountable.
Dear Mr. Cooper: Unless you present written and photographic proof that $1,000 1911 was used by either Audie Murphy or John Basilone to mow down the enemy in World War Two, you are out of your frigging mind.
We got us an elitist asshole pissing on the people that called, wrote, emailed and eventually voted so those guns could come home.
