I’m looking for a decent Les Baer wad gun for a reasonable price.  Want it for a friend in BE league so not sure what the budget is.
Please PM me with details.

Thanks for your help,
Bob

I posted a thread just like this a year ago.  I thought I knew what I wanted.  Fast forward a year, and I am very happy I changed my mind, and ended up with a Salyer.  

I do have a Les Baer Premiere II that I'm likely to be offering for sale (at what would be a very unreasonable price for this forum which is why I won't post it here).  

As someone told me, how many people did I see here competing with a Baer?

Actually I never gave that any kind of thought.  Who is Les selling all those guns to??  And what are the top shooters using. I'd really like to know that.  At this point I don't think what I'm shooting matters so much as how I'm shooting it.  However, like I said ... this one is for a friend and not for me.

I'm not so sure it would bother me if I had to buy one or two (or 16) different kinds before I found the one I like:)

Something more to add.   The Les Baer Wad Gun comes with a frame mount for the red dot sight.  A year ago, I thought that was an excellent choice for me, but I see most people here using a slide mounted sight.  Check the Les Baer website to see what I mean.

I don't know enough to tell you why one is preferable to the other, but I felt comfortable doing what most people here seem to do.

What are Shue guns? I know who Jonathan Shue is. Did you mean Cabot? Or did he start building guns? Or a different Shue? Color me confused.

Jerry Keefer was putting a ton of time into building VERY soft shooting frame mount guns.  Nothing wrong with a frame mount gun.  KC built 2 frame mount guns (38 Super & 45) for me using a REDBUFF mount. I had him convert the 45 to a integral cut H1 mount when I decided to convert everything to Aimpoint.  Both guns (all 3 barrels) are sub 1.25" guns.

Oh and I started with a Les Baer because I could get a new one shipped over night from Champions Choice.  It served me well I cleaned a few Timed and Rapid targets with it.

Integral Mount (not mine pictured)
 

Red buff Frame mount below, KC converted the 9MM he built me into a 38 Super w/6" fast 1-10 twist barrel
so I could shoot very soft lead loads for indoor matches.  Notice how close the mounts are to the slide.

I suspect the deal with frame mounts is the extreme frame/slide/barrel fitting required.
