I dont know if i am doing this right or if i am in the right place!! i have been doing some reading & i seen someone asking about EAA pistols & i will be picking up my new EAA witness elite gold 45!!! it was a little pricey but they are the top of the line if you want to shoot compitition or just want a pistol to take your friends out & have a blast. I have shot one so i know i will be happy, its got to be a good pistol if ERIC GRAUFFEL uses it to shoot champion ship compitition, so cant wait to git it. Once agin this is my first time on this sight so any help is appreciated.....

retirement

Newly retired. My interest in CCW and competitive shooting has been increasing in the last six years, more and more as retirement closed in for me. Glad I found this site. So far it's been very informative.

welcome trim and bass. you'll meet some good peoples here for sure.

The EAA pistol can be a nice shooter.

I probably would not base my opinion on a firearm based upon what someone else shoots. When you get it you want to consider the conversion for 22 lr for it also. Reason being is it lets you practice with the same frame (controls, point of aim, trigger, etc) and not empty your pocket of money so you have some left over for the main caliber.

Trigger time is really where comp shooting gets costly. There is allot to be said for practicing with your chosen caliber, but, it doesn't matter what caliber pistol your shooting the mechanics are the same, it is the recoil and follow up which changes with calibers.

You should also consider checking the prices at www.budsgunshop.com on the EAA of your choice because their prices are going to come in under everyone else, shipping is included in the price and even with phone call and transfer your going to be under the costs of buying it locally in most cases.

It isn't true with all firearms, but with some it seems to be...

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

Thanks for your input ishooydaily, i have had the privilege to shoot witness 45 & it is a very well put together gun & a blast to shoot, but you hit the nail on the head when you said change from 45 to 22lr. My gun of choice to carry is my 45 px4 storm Beretta & i love it, i am a avid gun owner & i am lucky that i have a big gun safe so my wife dose not know if i git a new pistol!! but i look at guns as if they are gold, if you ever need to buy something & dont have the money open the safe & there is some gold to cash in!!!!!.

EAA Witness

Hello all, I came across you posting about the EAA Witness, unfourtunitly I have not shot the Elite Gold, but I do own a EAA Witness Polymer tactical 45. I have about 150-200 round through it so far, but I am hoping to get some more use out of it in October.

I have been shooting competition for a bit over a year now and I started in USPSA in limited running a Glock 22 40 S&W, and IDPA SSP with the same, and I have since moved to Single Stack in USPSA with a modified Springfield 1911. I have a few big matches coming up in the next month so after the NC section the end of September I will be taking a bit of a break from single stack and was thinking about shooting L-10 in USPSA and CDP in IDPA with the Witness.

As for a shooter, the one I have is very controllable and very accurate, the controls are going to be something to get used to going from a 1911 to the witness, but I do agree that you may need to shop around to find a good price, and the 22 conversion may not be a bad idea, same some cash while you are getting used to the function of the pistol and then when you are ready to start competing switch to the main caliber.
