    Have any of you CZicko's purchased anything from a company called CopsPlus, out of Michigan ? :scratch: Link: https://www.copsplus.com/
    They have a Bianchi 1911 holster in tan, and other than Optics Planet (who I always have a hard time trusting), they seem to be the only one around with the model I want in-stock.
    No experience with them.

    I have a lot of orders with Optics Planet in the last couple of years, zero issues. They are generally not fast for me in regard to delivery times. YMMV.

    If you want to give me a part number for the holster you're after, I can see what I can find for you.

    9mm self defense ammo. I currently have two kinds I'm going back and forth with and can't seem to decide.

    Federal 124gr HST (standard pressure) - $219 shipped for 250 rounds
    Remington 124gr+P Golden Saber (bonded) - $340 shipped for 500 rounds

    This is what I have in my cart at CopsPlus. It's odd though, because the number doesn't seem to specify 'Black', or 'Tan', which is partly why I'm mistrustful.
    I want Tan !

    My biggest gripe with Optics Planet has been them selling things as 'in stock', and having that not be true. But, maybe I was just unlucky (twice).

    Thanks for your efforts !

    Optics Planet is much improved the last handful of years. I have had much success with Optics Planet (take that @wtburnette :stickpoke: ). If you play their "bonus bucks" when they double them and their flash sales, you can do pretty well. I "scored" with some big dollar (for me anyway) purchases and patience.

    Free shipping has been fine. Quicker than Midway. Slower than the small guys that ship right away.

    Dammit. I shouldn't be allowed to spend all day working this hard. Carried supplies and tools north to Elwood this morning. Removed two old windows, cut a big hole in a wall, and installed a header and proper framing for a pair of 34" wide x 57" tall double hungs that I saved from the recycle center a couple years ago. Started on tear out about 1100. Built in bench had to go. Moved everything that was in the way, including the lawn mower and finished up about 1815. Then Subway lunch/dinner then home. Unloaded the truck, took a :poop:, and I need a bourbon. Tomorrow will be ibuprofen day.

    For example, if you buy the below link today. You get $164.70 in bonus to spend dollar for dollar on a future purchase.

    That amount is NOT typical but you can often get 5% or 10% back along with a then running discount code. Then use a 3% back cash card.

    Yes. It is a game but if you not in a super hurry...it works over the long haul and makes you an OP junkie.

    I learned my tradecraft from Mr. Skinflint himself, T-dogg.

    I found multiple sellers on Ebay. I searched Bianchi 22142. Other than that, my search showed a bunch of vendors I'm not familiar with.
