    Went to the little gun store in South Austin and came across a Series 70 Colt 1911 in 9mm in factory blue. I wanted it so bad, and I even put it on a 3-day hold in case I wanted to do something rash.

    I'd be an idiot to buy it right now... but I have the itch.

    think about how much money you'll save shooting 9mm rather then .357sig or .45acp

    Damn you... I'm kinda torn now. I was originally wanting to get an STI Trojan in 9mm, but now I found this... and it's a Series 70 Colt, which are so sexy.

    i love my sti ranger II. im actually getting it bobtailed pretty soon. STI is the way to go, and the 9mm trojan you can probably find easily so its not something you'd have to order and wait 14 weeks for. lozl.

    shiloh's STIs should be in the first week of august, im excited.

    Hmmmm, I would just get it if it were me. Then pick up the STI at a later time!

    Just buy it. You'll think of a good reason on the way home. The only regrets (re: guns) I've ever had was the ones I talked myself out of buying.:(

    A pony in the hand is worth making STI wait. Either get it or pm me where it is.

    Is colt making a real S70 any more...no. Will STI still make Trojans...yes.
