    Question Gun Shows and Wife???

    Well yesterday was big gun show in Orlando. Friday the wife says no way are we going. Sunday we go and she buys a Beretta 85 F. Go figure??? Well it's metal and feels good to the hand. It's a .380 caliber, and for a purse gun as she calls it, it will work find. Haven't got it to the range yet but here's a couple of Pictures.

    Yes, they are nice - I almost bought that same model in the past. I just wish they didn't have read sights on the stainless/nickel models. And, there is a lack of rear sights available for that gun. But it is very nice, and the finish on the gun is beautiful. Congrats.

    I'll never get my wife to set foot in a gunshow, unfortunately....

    Naw Rusty he wasn't there Sunday or he might have been hiding in the bushes or something. I know who you mean as I talked to him down at the Melbourne Show a while back. Nice old Dude.

    I had to miss that one due to lack of funds.

    I will be going to the Jacksonville September 23rd-24th one though. So how were the deals on the Beretta 92 series pistols? I've been in the market for one. If they weren't much below $450 they can forget it. I can get a NIB Centurion from a local shop for that much.

    Civil War reanactors huh? I guess the shows in this area are different from the ones I'm used to.

    That Beretta sure is purdy. Those grips and the finish look really nice.

    She got it for $420 out the door. No tax or anything else. No back ground check or nothing as he was a private seller.

    Hey Rusty this old guy I was talking to was a nice old boy. He new a lot about the war between the states. I enjoyed talking to him for about 15 or 20 mintues. I had to go as I was breathing on one lung by then and wore out. They got a show in Melbourne this coming week end and might see if I can get down there. I'll be a looking for Country.
