I bought my used gun from a really shady character somewhere in East Texas. I was at my weekend job as a valet car parking attendant and I was on my way to park a car and this guy on a Harley went, "Psst! Wanna buy a gun?"
I said, "I don't have much money."
Pulling out an XD-40 subcompact he goes "Well, I gots this small gun I'll sell ya for cheap. My wife will kick my ass if I don't get rid of some of these guns. She's already on to me. The gun safe is full."
I looked in the glove box of the car I was parking and found a few hundred bucks. I said "Ok buddy. I'll help you out."
The rest is history.
