Good Deal?

I have the opportunity to buy a brand new straight from the manufacturer Para Ordinance modle 1911 45ACP with night sights, 5 14 round mags, case, cable lock, and custom grips and engraving all for a total of just over 800.00 bucks. I think it's a pretty good deal and am thinking of jumping on it. What do you guys think?

Fortunately he dropped the gun and the bullet was intercepted!

I think HarrisonBT got one of these, you might ask him (i will look for the tread). Is it the one with your unit number ect engraved on it, a military special deal?

Yes that is a good deal.

I paid around $800 for my dad's Para and it did not come with but 2 mags and no night sights.

I am sure you talking about the "unit specials" that Para does. I see the ads plastered in every chow hall and mwr center throughout the country.

Hell you are in the Marines right? What battalion? and what are they engraved with? I may try and get ahold of one.

I'm not a 1911 guy but I considered trying to get him to pick me up one, just don't have the money. Consensus in the other thread was it was a pretty good deal.

the paychecks and the 3 R&Rs a year keep me sane, I think.

I am about out though, the idiots are taking over. Too many Afghans (ANA, ASG & locals) get free reign of the FOB. Afghans in the chowhall, Afghans in the MWR computer center, Afghans in the gym, fucking Afghans everywhere. I can quaranty that the .mil here does not have the slightest clue who and how many afghans live and eat on THEIR camp. This place is a JOKE. I eat near an exit cause I am sure one of these jackass locals is going to go poof one day.

How many times does the army and air force need to get slapped before they wake up? In my 4 years I can count for atleast 30 that I know of. US service members killed on a FOB/Camp by an ANA, ASG or local national. And I can not even brush my teeth in a sink without some dirty ass ANA in the next sink washing his fucking feet. FUCK I am sick of these people.

Bastion has gotten much nicer in the year that I've been here. Place is fricking huge now. Wireless internet and shit and they are moving people out of tents and into the CANS soon. Will be like a regular resort by the time I come back in a year.
