OK Bill, it sounds like you want feedback on what to get. So here goes in the order to spend that tax refund:

-Bersa .380 Thunder (you'll love it)
-an Albanian and Romanian SKS (ammo is cheap and they're fun to shoot)
-a Colt lightweight Combat Commander (there's nothing like a 1911)


if any money left, gets lots of ammo! ;)

Bill, I know exactly how you feel. Earlier this month, I bought a Colt Python with my tax return. If you don't own a battle rifle, go with the AK/SKS. Else,get a 1911. You can never have too many 1911's. Good luck!

Got my tax refund back in less than two weeks of filing. Had plans for a new gun but when I got the check, 1/4 of it, the top, right hand corner, was torn off and missing. They say 30 to 45 days to replace it. Guess I get more time to decide what I want to buy.

Buy something nice, and don't forget to donate to the High Road fund. :)

-Bersa .380 Thunder (you'll love it)

Last gunshop I went to had one the dual tone. Too light for my taste. Are the black frames made of steel?

Thanks guys. I've been busy over the last few days do I couldn't respone. In a couple of weeks I'll go to a gunshop and take a look around.

I'll go out on a limb and say that the black frames are a lightweight alloy. I went to the Bersa/Eagle website and they showed the different color combinations (matte, duotone, satin nickel, gold, etc.) but it only indicates one overall weight (23 oz.).

Well guys I'll pick something up in a few weeks.

p.s. I had a bunch of money hidden away and I used it to buy a Colt D.S. II, a 30-30, a 30-06, and a new AR upper. ssshhhh. Be vewy, vewy quiet.

A guy at work who is going to get laid off is wanting to sell his XD-9 w/ 5" barrel for $450. I will swear that the last I was in gunshop, a NIB was retailing for this much.
Geeze wheez I thought the whole point of buying a USED gun was to save money over buying a new one.

Is an XD-9 a good gun? $450 is more money then I want to spend.
