Having a friend at a distributor is nice BUT it doesn't guarantee getting something like this UNLESS no one wanted it. Maybe it is just so new that no one had place an order yet. Or maybe they got one more than they had orders for. Still I'm surprised that Earl's doesn't think his will show up for a couple more months. Guess I was just really lucky!Soybomb: It's good to have friends in high places.
Here's a note I got from Earl's today on the matter:
We will be getting the "First Edition" PPS in 2-3 months (hopefully). This
will be different than the production models. I do not know the cost at this
point. My suggestion is to place your order on our website with no
obligation to get in line.
