And how long have you been one?

I bought my first Witness in 1996. So, as of 2011, I have owned and fired Tanfoglio pistols for 15 years. I have owned 1 compact (which went back to EAA for reliability issues that shot great afterward) and numerous full-size. The bulk of my Tanfoglios have been 45acp, but I have owned a handful of 9mm's.

I bought my 9mm back in 1999 I believe.



This year I upped the firepower a bit with a 10mm Elite. Both great pistols!

March 2006 was when I bought my first gun, also when I first seen an online pic of a Witness, it was love at first sight. By late August I bought one. A special thanks to Coach handbags. The wife wanted one, I said you deserve it go buy one. I waited in the car, when she got in I said oh yeah there is this gun I want to buy.............

My first Tanfoglio was a BTA 90. The gun was purchased shortly after they started coming into the US. Truly have no idea of the date. Still got the gun. R S

I purchased my TZ 75 new in December of 87. The pistol was made in 86. 25 years old! Kinda looks like R.S. and I have been the longest owners so far. Surely there are more.

Purchased Witness Elite Match 9mm Feb 2011. Number of issues but I believe it will be a worthwhile purchase.

Bought my first Witness in early 2010 (10mm Compact). having large hands and a missing right index finger I thought I'd never find a semi-auto (esp in 10mm) that would fit my unique requirements. Then stumbled upon the Compact 10mm and it's fits my hand like a glove. Just recently bought the .45ACP conversion kit for it and can't wait to shoot that configuration. now if I can just hold out for 1 more month till Mec-Gar releases their completely redesigned mags, since the factory followers in the 10mm & .40 S&W are JUNK causing nose dives among other issues.

Of ALL the diff brands of pistols I own, the Witness 10mm is by far the most comfortable to shoot.

Got my 1st EAA Witness Classic 9mm on 4/1/11 and found this forum!!! Still lurking, trying to gather more info this handgun. Guy at the local gun shop had it used and had it put aside for himself. When I asked if he had any CZ75's, he brought it out and decided to let it go. Still not sure even after reading if it's a Classic or Classic II, large or small frame. It is date coded CF, so it is fairly new, either late 2010 or 2011? I'll take some pictures with ruler next to it for sizing, if anyone can chime in and verify which frame it is. Planning first range trip with my wife sometime next week.
