I got one of my dream 1911s...TRS Hard Chrome

My 1911 collection had become primarily full of commander sized 1911s, and I thought it was time to pick up a full size again. I looked very long and hard at the Springfield TRP and almost bought one. However, I saved a little longer and went with the gun that has always been at the top of my wish list: a Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special Hard Chrome. I sold a couple of my other guns to be able to swing the Baer (don't worry, they all found good homes where they will be shot a lot more than I was shooting them )

I can't wait to shoot this thing...it is a tight pistola for sure. I don't know why I always end up buying guns in the middle of winter when it is freezing out! I think I am going to have to just suck it up and go to the outdoor range next week.

Congrats, those are sweet.
That is a beauty.

I recently picked up a TRS and really like it.
Great looking TRS I am looking at one too. Let me know how you like it.
That is nice. A keeper for sure.
Schweet! Congratulations! Be sure to let us know how she groups when you get a chance.
That is one of my dream guns as well. Great minds think alike:wink:
Awesome looking Baer, I shot a SRP this weekend and feel in love and this one had 8 years on it but shot like a tackdriver. Congrats. Go brave the cold to shoot that pistol!
Happy for you.Now shoot it and have a ball.
Yeah...I am going to have to make it out to the range this week and report back.

Beautiful pistol, you're gonna love it.
Range report in the general firearms discussion...fun to shoot, even in the freezing cold.
:dancingbananna: Congrats on this; I'd guess it will do very well for a long time to come. The few Baers I've seen shot great and felt solid.

Nice looking TRS! Glad you are enjoying it!

Gotta love the High quality cardboard used in the box Les Ships his pistols in. The man skimps nowhere I tells ya!

Great gun, congrats. I have always wanted a Baer but just cant swing it right now. Mirando
Nice TRS. The hard chrome looks almost like stainless.
Congratulations. I have the same, only to watch out for is you might come home from the range and find you are missing a grip screw. With the thin grips there are not many threads for contact between the screws and bushing. maybe some Lock Tite of some kind. Regular grip screws and bushings are not the same and cost a lot more.
