    Talking She did it again.

    Me and the wife left the gun range Sat: to get something to eat I thought. Well she stops in a new gun store on the island. He gives me this Thunder Ranch model 21-4, in .44spec to play with. A collectors type gun. Him and her look at what else he's got. I heard her say cash out the door. I thought she had bought herself a gun. The guy comes over and says I have to let go of the gun and sign the paper it was mine.
    No brithday or Christmas. God I love that women.

    That's cool.......

    My wife would do the same thing, except she would buy it for herself.
    She bought a pretty new red PT Cruiser convertible that she wont even let me drive. No problem, a man would have to cut his b***s off if he drove a car like that!
    Just kidding! Sounds like you got you a good one there. Guess you should keep her.

    Look at this deal. Sometimes I think we are our own worst enemies. This is the same gun as mine and the same series and I paid about half of what he is asking. Crazy, I tell you crazy. My serial number is #395. His is #13.

    Great price!!!

    Are you saying she paid about $750.00 for that beauty. If so, that's a great price. I recently put a S & W Model 327 TRR8 in 3rd place on my "want/need" list. It's a performance Center gun at $1,260.00 MSRP or the price they wish they could get. But even at that it's not a bad price for a Performance Center Revolver. However if I were to run across a Model 29, 50th Anniversity revolver for $750.00 I might be tempted to change directions. It's happened before! Just ask either of my ex-wives.

    Yep ours was $770,1 box of Winchester.44 200gr Sliver tips hollow points, and 2 packs of .380 magtec gold tip hollow points. Display case and all the trimmings. I mean that guys gun didn't sell at that price, but all he was trying to do was gouge somebody. That's just not right in my book anyway.

    I'd recommend you buy a real 29 for cheaper. That way you don't have to deal with that gawdy gold emblem or keyhole.

    I done some checking on him, and it seems to be a common thing with him. You'd be surprised how many guys think it's no big deal. I have sold a lot of guns at a profit but never gouged anybody. They got a fair deal.

    Heck I don't mind the gold emblem that says it's the 50th Aniversity pistol or the key hole since I never would use it anyway. What I think is gaudy is a pimped up, highly engraved pistol that looks like a kids cheap cap gun. In fact I don't have any tatoos on my manly body or bumper stickers on my car but the gold emblem and that pretty little display case is cool.
