Haha. Does that mean I get the first one? I will settle for third after the R brothers.  ;D

I think I hear cherubim...   ;D  I realize the secrecy needs, etc - I've had my deposit on the R45 out for awhile - if he gets the final shape finished, and could get a mold out to some holster makers, so I could order a holster to arrive along w. the pistol...

 (If he's really worried about keeping the shape secret, perhaps it could be sent to Rohrbaugh and included w. the gun.)  

Also, a rough idea of cost, so I know how much toy money to set aside.

I don't have a deposit on one and don't care about having one of the first couple of hundred. I would like #224, my birth date. ;D

I do have a deposit in and will take an early one, hopefully.  I do know the pitfalls of what can go on with early production, however, Rohrbaugh stands behind their product, so I'm not worried.    :)

Yes, I know!  Just wishful thinking! ;D I am sure that, with all the people that have put down a deposit on the R45, the line is quite long.

Is an early model R45 really going to be collectable in this case? Early R380s never took off because there was nothing really special about them. Early R9s had cosmetic changes so they were different in many ways and not just by the early serial.

CCW.  Can't answer your question on will the early R45 to be collectable or not.  Mine's going to be a shooter, so I'm just going to like having one and enjoying what it does.    :)

I wouldn't think that anything past the first ten would have much more value than than the rest. Who knows how many of the first production the R-Bros will tuck away in the safe. ;D

Probably quite a few.  I'll just be glad when production starts.    ;)

I will inquire tomorrow as to whether any of these questions can be answered.

I'm not worried about collectibility - I drag my guns through all kinds of horrible things - I just don't enjoy delayed gratification...

It would be a real collector's item if the first one hundred R 45s came with Blue Carbon Fiber grips.

Great balls of fire!  Blue Carbons on the R45!  That would be nice.    :D
