Maybe all those years of clean livin' are gonna pay off after all. ;)

My dad asked me to find him another budget .38 snub, so this morning I set off in search. Planned to visit about 10 pawn shops and gun stores.

FIRST STOP at a pawn shop not more than a mile from the house, someone had sold a Taurus, Ultra-Lite in stainless. Looked to have had 10 to 20 rounds through it. BAM! There it was. Never had to make another stop.

But, wait, it gets better.

Been looking for another snub for my bride to keep in her car.

POW!!! Won a Gunbroker auction for a pristine Smith Model 60, and the seller lives within about an hour's driving distance. No tax, no paperwork.

Comin' a flash flood here right now, but it's been a HELL of a good day.

Nice pair.

I chased mine down from an estate sale to a LGS a year ago.

Watch out for that single action trigger, it don't take much.

NICE pistol, DA.

"Watch out for that single action trigger, it don't take much."

Had Gary Dean do the action/trigger job on it. MUCH more smooth now.
