Sheesh, I hate to be a money-haver-hater but my house barely cost that. :barf:
February 23, 2003, 11:14 PM
Well, yeah, sure, but how good a shooter is it?
February 24, 2003, 12:24 AM
Nice rig! Can I get a matched pair?
February 24, 2003, 12:27 AM
Cratz, doesn't it suck to think that there are people in this world who can spend in a second what it will take you 30 years to pay off?! And I don't mind being a money-haver-hater. They deserve it.
On topic, I wouldn't buy it. That's one ugly case.
February 24, 2003, 12:55 AM
Maybe Clint Eastwood will buy it. He can afford it. :)
February 24, 2003, 01:00 AM
Christ, I'm sorry, but that is wretchedly ugly.
February 24, 2003, 01:08 AM
That's insane!! :what:
It's also ugly... :barf: :barf: :barf:
February 24, 2003, 01:45 AM
Yup, I think I too have missed the bus on this one...it's UGLY!
February 24, 2003, 04:46 AM
TO RICH FOR MY BLOOD.:neener:
February 24, 2003, 08:28 AM
I'll wait for the "Bridges of Madison County" version. :D
February 24, 2003, 09:10 AM
This was listed previously on Gunbroker at least once, back in July 02.
February 24, 2003, 01:15 PM
BLECH! :barf: :barf: :barf:

I'm sure Mr. Condon did nice work, but this is certainly one of the most unaesthetic monstrosities I've ever seen.
Too bad he spent his time making it look like a pimped-out POS.
February 24, 2003, 04:13 PM
Maybe Rosie O'Donnell will buy it for one of her bodyguards. :D :D
February 24, 2003, 04:15 PM
Did he say $125,000 or only $100,000? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel RICH?'
Well, do ya............ punk?
February 25, 2003, 02:31 AM
Is it me, or does that thing look like a piece of chair rail from a New Orleans cathouse?
February 25, 2003, 02:58 AM
Isn't this the same gun that Clint used in the movie?:D
February 25, 2003, 03:00 AM
Wait no. I don't remember his gun having pearl grips, other than that they look identical.:scrutiny:
U.G.L.Y. This gun NEEDS an aliby.
February 25, 2003, 03:17 AM
A few thousand for a interesting manufactured collectable? Sure. $125,000 ? No.
(Not that I have that much cash to blow on a gun):)
You can get a damn nice double rifle for $125,000, and it will look better and have just as much engraving as that Smith.

That gat be havin pimp wrote all ova it. Word!

Lavishly engraved and inlaid with 4 oz. of 24K gold
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't 4 oz a quarter of a pound? A 1oz gold coin is a fairly large piece and I don't see how there could be that much gold in those inlays.
February 25, 2003, 09:16 PM
I can't afford it and may have a bad case of sour grapes, but I would put the value at about $35-40k.
February 26, 2003, 03:49 AM
A quarter ounce would be pushing it.
The gold leaf used to cover church steeples, etc. is incredibly thin, on the order of only a few molecules thick. I don't see how this could be different.

My Dad (depression era) has always said, " A fool and his money soon parteth company";)
February 28, 2003, 09:53 PM
Excellent, Tamara, excellent!!
I would not know personally, but it sure seems feasible!
February 28, 2003, 10:30 PM
No, Tamara, the owners and operators of New Orleans cathouses have much more taste than that. It was definitely copied from the decor of a cathouse though. I'm just not sure where.
March 1, 2003, 04:02 AM
Check out the Model 36 (http://www.gunbroker.com/auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=7653208) he has for sale.
March 1, 2003, 05:02 AM
I'm surprised no one has noticed that's in Nevada, where prostitution is legal.
Maybe it's from a Nevada cathouse:neener:

Guy must love ugly guns from the "Early Street Pimp" period.
Bet he has a Cadillac with the fuel filler door gold plated, a phony convertible top, full whitewalls, wire wheels w/ spinners, chrome rocker panels, phony rolls-royce grill, curb feelers and lighted windshield wiper nozzles. Maybe neon undercarriage lights and a fog machine, too. Oh, and leopard upholstery and a continental kit.
March 2, 2003, 04:53 AM
Someone explain to me how all that inlay-pearl-carved-gold-plated-hand-crafted stuff makes it shoot better.:confused:
March 2, 2003, 11:04 AM
I notice the auction closed with no bids. Now if he'll just relist it for $120,000 I might be interested... :rolleyes:
No, Tam, it's not just you.
March 3, 2003, 12:36 AM
...first time I saw this "Beauty" was several years ago...asking price THEN was in the 16k-18k range...and I thought it was GROSSLY overpriced then, too...BTW, I, too, think it's ugly as sin....mikey357
March 3, 2003, 09:59 AM
While I try to appreciate the skill and talent of fine engravers, it seems that it has to be done JUST RIGHT-right amount, right style, right proportions--or it totally ruins the looks of the gun.
And I've seen more guns wrecked by engraving than enhanced.
March 3, 2003, 11:20 AM
There's a lot of engraving that I like. Too much of it is on 19th century pistols. There's some inlay I like. Almost all of it is on 19th century pistols.
Bunny rabbits? give me a break.
March 18, 2003, 04:19 PM
So, Tam, tell us what you know about New Orleans cathouses!
No, wait. Scratch that. Uh, I mean, forget it. :what:
My, what a delicate way to say...
March 18, 2003, 06:51 PM
I look at this gaudy thing and smile. :D If I was wealthy enough to buy it, I'd put on my jeans, go to a public range and when I had enough people around me I start shooting it. Just to annoy and distract the others there.:evil: :neener:
It probably don't shoot very good though. :evil:
March 18, 2003, 08:18 PM
Someone explain to me how all that inlay-pearl-carved-gold-plated-hand-crafted stuff makes it shoot better. Same way those Nieuport wings and performance stickers make Hondas and Hyundais so much quicker.:D
