NCG......do you find trees clawed by bears? How high up are the marks? I would love to see some pictures if you do.

Seriously, would love to see a range report on your Baer, Cigar. Have always wanted one of those.

Ridge, haven't bothered to look for those, but will keep my eyes open, now that you mention it.

NCG,
I have 750 rounds through the pistol. Not one problem from round one. I been shooting my reloads after the first 100 rounds. I have used the the mag that came with the gun and have run it well oiled. They say not to clean it for the first 500 rounds. I could not do that. I cleaned it after 250.
Hoping to get to the outdoor range with it this week if it warms up. If I do I will post a target pic if I can keep them in the black.

Congrats on the piece of art. They sure are great looking guns and I hear they are worth the price tag.

I have heard only great things about Les Baer pistols and rifles. How smooth is the action, and how is the trigger? I have read complaints about Ed Brown pistols....but I reckon all tight tolerance 1911's can burp occassionally.

The action is smooth as silk and the trigger is crisp and clean. As they say like glass breaking. They are a very tight gun and need to be broken in. I would put in on par with my Wilson Combat. I will put another 250 rounds through it before I will carry it.

It would be tough to chose between Wilson and Baer. Do you like one more than the other?

The Wilson. Might be due to the fact I have had it longer and shot it more. It is also my carry gun. It is a 38 Super cal. Baer is 45 cal.
You could not go wrong with either.

I wish they would not put "billboards" on their models. I like a clean looking slide. Just one persons preference.

I believe you can order them that way.

I see bear claw marks and scat all the time hiking in the Cascades.

That is a nice looking pistol. Wouldn't mind having one myself.

Actually, we could use a few more four-legged predators in the neighborhood. The neighborhood deer population needs some trimming. They've badly over-browsed our local forest.

Decades ago when I was hunting coyotes for their fur I skinned one and it had a thick layer of fat. Not at all like they would be a hundred years ago. Much of the desert around Ephrata is now irrigated fields and a lot of potatoes are grown. They can easily dig them up.

As a two legged predator I object! We're in a battle out here against the introduction of wolves. They've been hard on ungulate populations north of us and we're doin all we can to hold the line! Having lived up in the arrowhead region above you a few years I understand how difficult they are to hunt. I could hear them any evening I wanted, but in the time I was there I never saw a wolf. They've been particularly hard on moose and elk. Sure before long mother nature will deliver a severe winter and knock the deer back in a way only she can. Would rather see some bow hunters utilize the resource but I know it isn't always practical or possible. Elk spaghettis on the menu tonight, and I'm extremely grateful for it! Course I spect I'll need to eat it by candlelight unless our REA pulls a rabbit outta the hat!

They say when it's all said and done there will still be coyotes and cockroaches! They're about the most adaptable critter on the planet! First I ever heard of em digging and eatin potatoes but I can believe it! Some studies say in ideal conditions they can take up to 75% of the fawn crop in an area! There's no season or limit on em here and unless they get the mange there's never a shortage of em!

We have coyotes but no wolves. However, a guy down the road had two wolves. I've been in a deer stand before first light and they would start howling. That is a most beautiful sound. Nothing like a coyote.

Dennis, have heard wolves, every once in awhile, but not on a regular basis. Wisconsin did have a wolf season for a couple years until a court order shut it down. Definitely a hot button topic with our deer hunters, up here.
