Any ideas where I might be able to find a Pink PT111 (new or used - not picky) from a place other than Gander Mountain? They are asking $100 more than even Academy.

Someplace in Houston or via internet.

Thanks

Seems from the web site that this sale is limited to the IA store. I checked to see if another store had a similar sale and drew a blank!!

the sale ad is on the gander Mountain website and as far as I know is for all stores. It is on sale here in Houston also, but considering I can get the same gun in black at Academy for $299 I was trying to find out if there was a cheaper optin for the pink.

Unfortunately, it looks like my best hope is to find one used off of someone (seems unlikely) or do attempt a price match at Gander Mountain (probably more unlikely).

Sorry, I rechecked the web site again, and it does seem to be a broad based ad! It did not give me other stores that had the ad on my first try.

yeah, that's what I figured. It is not "identical", but there is always the chance I get someone who is extra nice. May give it a shot one day.

I'm not really in a hurry. I want to get it as a gift for my wife, and her birthday and/or Christmas are still many months away.

Just trying to get feelers out there and stay on top of my options. I will keep looking for a used model, as I doubt she would care.

I would try it, just take an ad in from Academy or something. I even had them decline a price match once on a M91 Carbine because theirs came with a rifle sock :)

"rifle sock" ha ha ha... oh man, that's just frustrating. I guess it was probably difficult to resist telling them where they could put the sock.

Next time I see the PT111 on sale at Academy I will give it a shot. The worst that could happen is they say no. Right?

Yeah, I looked on gunbroker, and the last 9mm that came up sold for like $540!!

I have almost thought about buying a couple and selling one of them if the price is going to be like that.

Anyone have any idea if it might be possible to order a "replacement" pink grip from Taurus or someone else?

Some one here checked with Taurus some months ago, and they were an exclusive made only for Gander. Who knows if they made spares or not.

I found that post:
http://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/index.php?topic=2368.75

It was really a question on if an entire pink PT911 could be purchased from Taurus rather than Gander. I guess I am wondering if just the pink frame/grip could be ordered as a replacement part?

I may have to just check with Taurus to find out, but thought I would ask here first.
