    im soon going home to WA. while im there i will pick up a pistol. since i live in cali but claim wa as residence (military). i want to get a .45 before handguns are illegal. im looking at XD (i have a 4" XD9) also taurus, S&W M&P.

    all those polymers are on the list. to get a 1911 is more $$. i like the STI Spartan but have to order it. i cant find the cheap like 600$ site i found early'r. i am willing to spend around 700$ or less. so the STI SPARTAN is in there if i can find the link. but .45 is must.

    You guys don't have anyone somewhat local who is an STI dealer? That's all I did was use their dealer search and found one about 45 minutes or so away. I ordered my Spartan on Monday. Should be here this week.

    Oh and I really don't like how glock feels in hand. And most of the glock sights aren't my favorite

    So...is it coming into CA or not? If it is, then you need to read up on the goddamn laws, especially since you don't appear to be bringing it into the state for competition purposes.
