    The search is FINALLY over......

    With MANY thanks to a forum member here (I shall leave him nameless unless he chooses to reveal himself), my 32 year quest to obtain one of every model Randall made in .45 acp has finally concluded, with the most recent addition of the B131 I'd been looking for! Decades of haunting gun shows, gun boards from every state in the Union - it's all finally concluded!

    So - here's a family portrait for your viewing pleasure......

    Who you call'n a "geezer"? I answer to the "old " thank you very much! I've been following this and other 1911 forums from the beginning and I've owned several lefty Randall's since the mid 80's (guess that does make me a geezer) and I knew when it was time to let the B131 go, you were the guy I wanted it to go to........once the check cleared!! I hope you enjoy owning AND SHOOTING IT for many years to come. Nothing beats the looks you get at the range when brass starts flying; to your left! Very impressive collection T.R., you have every reason to be proud of your accomplishment.

    Thanks, my friend - and THANK YOU for entrusting the old girl to me.....needless to say, my two boys are anxiously putting in their "favorite son" requests, lol! Trying to set up a li'l range time for Friday - it's amazing how full the dance card can get when you're retired!!

    You ever get down this neck of the woods, holler - we'll check out some of the .45's (and maybe a coupla the post-samples we have at the shop) and hit the range!

    Yessir - have two of 'em in the collection - a round top and a flat top. 654 total were made between the two of 'em.

    Congrats on the adoption. I've been lusting for a left handed Randall for awhile.
