I was looking at S & W Model 60's and 36....699.00 and 749.00....
at those prices and a recession going on im surprised they can sell one or two a month.
Thats insane.

There are wants and there are needs.

I count guns at that dollar level a want, and so long as people can afford their wants things really aren't going that badly.

But those prices are stupid. :eek:

Now before anyone points out the .357 during the depression, that's a totally different ballgame. Revolutionary cartridge, police demand, etc.

I buy the older, pre lock models. Better revolver, less money. Bonus is, they hold their resale value too! :)

One can only guess that these are first time gun buyers or the independently rich people. For sure it won't be me, I buy only the items that are not available elsewhere. I buy the same Blazer ammo at Wal Mart for $12.95 for 40 rounds that Gander wants $39.95 for 40 rounds.

I recently went to G.M. to see how much they would offer for my Model 66-3 2.5" barrel. It has only about 100 rounds through it -- I am the original owner. They offered me $181 for it. I thought that was a little low.:eek:

At least in my area Gander is the most expensive place going for guns and accessories.

I do that with a pre-27 everytime i go into a new gunstore to "test the waters", see how honest they are.
