    I can honestly say I have never bought a cheap firearm. I would rather save and get quality. I am not some superior or rich person or even a snob. I just am a firm believer in the saying that you get what you pay for!

    Not cheap

    Just not a lot of money. Used Model 10 IIRC $75 some years ago.
    Sold it later for $ 125. I Know...should have kept it.

    A used Raven for $35 back in the '80's------What a POS!!!!

    Only worked as single shot---sold it for $25.

    I feel dirty even talking about it.

    Well..how about almost bought?

    A buddy of mine needed some money so he decided to sell one of his wife's guns. Went over and found out it was a nickel plated Jennings .25 auto with pink grips.

    I just loaned him the $40 and told him to keep it. :D

    Good Shooting

    I bought a older S&W 586 w/ 6" barrel for $50. Later learned it was used & abused. I ended up cleaning it up and selling it for something I could use.

    10-Ring - why couldn't that S&W be repaired? What was so wrong with it that it wasn't cost effective to fix it and return it to service. BTW, $50 is a great buy on your part.

    My cheapest buy was an "estate" type sale where I picked up 3 guns for $125. The S&W revolver in the group had an aftermarket cylinder and bbl.

    4v50 Gary - this happend many many many many years ago. I wasn't to knowledgable re: gunsmiths, S&W revolvers and what I really had. I figured if the guy was really willing to let it go for $50 it must really be worth about $50. I did make money on the deal when I sold it, tho (isn't that the American way?) :)

    FIE Titan .25, believe it or not the darn little thing was 100% reliable and reasonably accurate. Bought it for $59. Sold it, but wouldn't mind finding another.
