So, it’s about that time of year where I skim a bit of my annual bonus money to buy myself a gift.
The year before last (with my current employer), I bought a gaming laptop.
Last year (last year), I bought a 10mm 5″ doublestacked 1911.
This year, I’m not sure what I’ll do.
I can take $1000-2000 of it and use it to service and get my motorcycle back on the road (it’s been sitting in the garage the past 3-4 years).
I also have a list of guns that I can purchase:
I’ve been looking at the WBP MiniJack Milled AK pistol – $1,199.00. The price will rise just a tad, as I’d want a brace.
I’ve also been considering a non-budget .45ACP 1911:
- Sig Sauer 1911 Emperor Scorpion Full Size – – $1099 MSRP
- Springfield Armory 1911 Operator – $1159 MSRP
- Springfield Armory 1911 Ronin – $899 MSRP
- Springfield Armory 1911 Vickers Tactical – $1495 MSRP
I’m limiting myself to one choice.
Right now, I think I’m leaning toward the WBP MiniJack, as a primary choice since it’s a beautiful gun. I’d like another milled AK. It’s also currently in stock.
Most of the other guns I listed (what I supplied above is a narrowed-down list of quite a few 1911s) are not currently in stock due to Covid times.
Second choice, for now, is going to be the SA 1911 Vickers Tactical. This 1911 is exceptional and is more than the WBP MiniJack.
The thing that keeps bugging me is that I already have 1911s (lower end non-US makes), so I don’t really need one, but a really nice high end 1911 would be something different.
Another thing that keeps bugging me is that I already have several AKs, even a milled AK and even several AK pistols. I don’t really need another AK, even a beautiful one such as the MiniJack…
Wow, I appears that I just made a very strong case for the Vickers Tactical 1911 as my primary choice. (WATCH ME CHANGE MY MIND AT THE LAST MINUTE).
I can always get the MiniJack Milled next year.
I should find out when the bonus is coming sometime late February or early March. If it’s a lot, I might be able to justify buying two (or getting a lift and wheels/tires for the Jeep).
