    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)

    and

    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.

    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.).

    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.
