    Thanks to all who responded to my questions on Les Baer guns. I've decided to purchase a Custom Carry from Crazy John in Idaho. He had the gun configured as I wanted in stock; It should arrive in a few days. I'll post some pics when it arrives.
    Thanks again,
    C

    Congrats. In all reality, if you're a shooter, this is all you need in a 1911.

    That's ironic, you are the second guy to say that today. This is going to be my "working gun", not a safe queen.

    Congrats, great choice! My first Baer was a low mileage Custom Carry. It was tight as a drum, laser accurate, and my experience with it was what prompted me to buy my Boss and then the Hemi.

    I got my Custom Carry from John also. He had exactly what I wanted in stock. Great guy to do business with. Ended up with a Premium 2 from John also...
    You will love your new Baer...

    I had an earlier ultimate tactical carry and it was a good pistol .last summer I sprang for a new CC and its a great pistol. Much better parts fitment. Still bank vault tight but everything works much smoother and its rackable. Just feels better and barrel isn't beating itself every time returns to battery. I hope you experience the same. If it won't hand rack use the one hand style .right hand on grip not in shooting position but rather with 4fingers over slide and thumb around grip and rack that way with a small push on front with other hand. Hard to describe but makes it very easy. Rather than pushing muzzle on hard surface
    Congrats you'll love your Baer. And as others have said, truly all the pistol anyone needs . Mine has had no malfunctions of any kind

    I loved my Custom Carry. Miss it, and I agree that Baer's just shoot, duty gun, range gun, whatever they are lasers!

    I think you will enjoy ownership of the Baer

    Unless of course, you feel the sudden urge to mimmick a Hollywood Fantasy John Wick type and dump the pistol
