I just want to add two things then i'm set on this topic (which I started btw, but it looks kinda out of control). [roll]
1. I'll stick with what I said in the first post that Zero Hour is a high end shop with some pricey guns. If you want pre ban assault type rifles and have some cash, this is the shop to get em at. Prices were average and the guy I spoke with was cool and willing to sit a while and chat with me and my friend about AKs, ammo, etc.
2. If I walked into a gun shop and GG Allin came out from behind the counter covered in feces i'd still buy a gun if the price was right and it was something I was looking for. [lol] Point is i'd rather have a shop owner be honest and be themselves in front of me instead of someone trying to blow smoke up my ass to get me to buy a gun. I understand some folks are easily offended and thats ok with me. I'm cool with everybody until they give me reason not be. Theres gun shops I won't bring my wife into because of the talk that goes on there, doesn't mean I won't still shop there. Just remember, in a hobby like this you're gonna run into some offending people. Its almost like going out bar hopping... you go to the bars where your crowd of people hangs out.

What kind of 1911 are you looking for? I got a S&W 108282 it's a 5 inch SS with fixed carry sights. Which are Novacks with the white dots, I couldn't belive how accurate it is. It handles better than my Sig Sauer P220. I paid $699 new at Four Seasons last year.
I like it so much I'm going to buy a 108283 also, which is a blue 4 1/4 inch with the same sights. It's a little lighter by about 10 oz. Also a couple of things I like about S&W 1911 is the great factory warrenty and the external extractor, which is so dependable..
I'm waiting for a local store to have a S&W day to get one. They had one last year at Northeast trading and had some great deals.
I like the looks of the Para but I rather play it safe with the S&W warrenty.
In this state theres not alot of 1911's to choose from.

Just so you know, the Para Warrenty is second to none. I've known two other people besides myself that have needed to use it, and issues were fixed with no questions asked.
I even told them that I lost a part completly my fault and they sent it out for free.NES Swag that Supports Comm2A <---- Click Me!

AFTER READING THE EARLIER POSTS I HAD TO RESPOND. FIRST ABOUT THE SW1911SC PRICE DIFFERENCE, I RECENTIY TRADED IN
THE ONE THEY HAVE LISTED FOR $50.00 LESS. I BROUGHT IN A COUPLE OF PISTOLS AND LEFT WITH A PREBAN RIFLE I WANTED, GOOD DEAL FOR ME AND ZERO HOUR. TO THEIR CREDIT THEY COULD HAVE PRICED
BOTH PISTOL THE SAME, BECAUSE THEY ARE IN THE SAME SHAPE, THIS SHOWS ME THAT WHEN THEY GET A GOOD DEAL THEY PASS IT ALONG.
TO ANYONE OUT THERE ,IF YOU DO NOT GO ZERO HOUR YOU WILL BE MISSING OUT. THESE GUYS ENJOY COLLECTING AND SHOOTING MILITARY STYLE FIREARMS, LIKE SOME US DO. SINCE I DID THE TRADE
I HAVE ORDERED A RIFLE,BOUGHT AMMO AND AN AR15 LOWER, AND HAVE GOTTEN GREAT SERVICE AT VERY FAIR PRICE.

If the subject in question was male the I stand corrected and wholeheartedly issue an apology for stepping out of bounds. If I was wrong and out of place, I'll admitt to the mistake and apologize for it. I got the feeling the subject was female, hence my position.

I have purchased two guns from Zero Hour and both times I was treated very well. The guys inside the shop were very helpful. I will definately go back.

I have been in gun shops that would not even give me the time of day. They would talk with Glenn,but me being female I guess I didn't know anything. So as a result I do not frequent them.
As far as bad taste in joke... well I put up with a bunch of mechs in the Army so it would take a bit to offend me. I just probably wouldn't think it appropriate and make my judgement later.

I recently purchased a USP from ZHA and have not a bad word to say about them or their shop. Traded in an old piece of junk and put the money to the H&K. I have seen them at some of the shows since and they are always friendly enough. My 2 cents.“Either the Constitution means what it says, or it doesn’t." ~ Judge Andrew Napolitano

First, the word is warranty; not "warrenty."
Second, Para Ordnance does stand behind its products. It repolished a "large capacity" mag AND gave me a standard mag while the original was being redone.
When my slide started to peen at the slide stop lever, it redid the slide AND polished out the scratch an overzealous - and CLUMSY - intermeddler put on said new slide by incompetently reinserting the slide stop.
Not to say the S&W gun or its warranty is not good; just that Para backs its products - and S&W DON'T make no "hi-cap" 1911s.
