    Just goes to show how these semi customs/custom 1911's are affordable to the masses. Unlike those high end guns that are truly out of the realm of 99% of people..

    One of Beretta's half dozen or so retail stores (in the world), is located in Dallas, TX. The wife and I went down there one day mainly for entertainment purposes. We weren't disappointed.
    As you go in the store, you're greeted by a display case immediately to the right which has got to have one of the biggest Bowie knives in the world - and for as impractical as it was, it was also equally beautifully finished out. Their collection of shotguns for sale, started at a low of $180,000 and went up from there (and I do mean, waaay up). One that caught my eye, was bargain-priced at $235,000 (just under $255K with sales tax). They had quite a selection available in that price range. I told my wife, that even though that cost more than our house, if she really wanted to "splurge" just a little for my birthday....
    I did tell her to not waste her money on the $12,000 stock (unfinished wood only). And to think there are people walking around with that kind of money, geeze....

    I knew I made a mistake by selling that rusty, blood pitted,
    Luger that Hitler killed himself with for $500 a few years ago!!
