    Yes, dump it now and beat the rush.

    I wonder what the price point is going to be on the Taran STI? My guess...$3500+ ??

    Around 4 grand. Another absolute waste of money. I've got better things to spend 4 G's on.

    Uh, 3800 is around 4 grand. Add in taxes, transfer fees. No thanks. Maybe they can re-name it the "STI Sucker's Special". I'm sure someone will buy it, put 50 rounds through it and then sell it for 2 grand.

    I don't care how people choose to spend their money, as long as it's not my money. Which is why I have problems with the US Government. :)

    It comforts me to delude myself that my tax dollars are going to buy my beloved Marines new sniper rifles.

    Ok, that's two forms of media in the last week or so using STI 1911/2011's.
    First, a show I thought I might like to watch and DVRd it now this, something in the water in Hollywierd?

    Oh, the waste of time on the DVR was Magnum Paleeease.....

    Do STIs have a bad reputation?

    Not at all, it's just interesting and the only reason I mentioned the DVR piece is in one shot it looked like "more" than just a 1911, the anothe shot I paused the playback and saw the billboard on the slide. They seem to be popping up, two so far.

    Find it funny people are bemoaning the pricetag of this on a forum where $4k for a semi-custom is not only acceptable, but commonplace.
    The OMNI is $100 more; Costa Carry Comp is about that; and I'm sure there are plenty of other STIs for about that.
    Are STIs worth it? I tend to think so and own a number of them. Am I going to buy this one? No- my cup done runneth over with 2011s at this point in my life and won't be getting any more.
    Pretty sure I could find things in almost everyone's home that I would look at and think- this guy is a fool for buying that or paying that amount for it. But, I'll keep my mouth shut to them. Unless it's a Nickelback CD, then I'm going to say something.

    IF I get a 1911 in 9mm, I'd really enjoy the double stack models STI offers.
