    Post a picture of your cheap handgun. Your "Saturday night special" for lack of a better term.

    Well, its not really a Sat. night special but it was cheap. I paid $150.00 for it in December at a local show. Bought it as a carry gun and so far it fills the bill. Its got plenty of umph (9x18 Makarov) and I replaced the very heavy mainspring with a PPK spring from Wolff. A Ross Leather IWB holster makes it ride real nice.. :)

    Define "cheap." Most of my guns were bought for under $200!

    Post pictures of my guns? Why? So the government can come to my house a confiscate them? I think not. Now where's my tinfoil...

    First of all, they're not all cheap, though none were purchased new. The Beretta 92 at the lower left was around $500, and the Ultrastars, the grey plastic guns at the bottom center (a 9 and a .40) were just over $250 (well worth it!), the Star PD was two and a half and one of the Firestars (the blued .45) and Astra A-70 were just under. Everything else on that table, I paid $200 or less.

    Where? Gun shows, gun shops, a couple on the auction sites and one -- the PD -- I found here. That's a several-year accumulation, most of them from the Spanish firm Star. A Star model BM was my first gun (the one about the center of the pic, with wooden grips) and I liked it a lot; so I kept my eye open for other Stars. They're not costly (generally, that is; a highly-engraved and plated .32 at the Indy gun show today was priced to move at over $700!) and they suit me.

    :D

    Each of these was less than $150, if you don't count transfer or shipping costs.

    Here's a $199 private-sale Tokarev clone... http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=176593 (scroll down).

    And a $60 Eibar-type .25; why? In case we ever are bothered by mice. When people say, "you can do worse than a .22 for self-protection," this is probably the round they're thinking of. To the little pistol's credit, it's as accurate as the "sights" allow and has been entirely reliable. It's also Levi's worst nightmare: fits those back pockets like they were made for it!

    H&R 622 revolver: $65 back in Nov2005

    Of course, $65 bought a lot more back then, inflation you know...

    See my past thread in the revo forum (search under my username) for all the messy details. Long/short, it's cheap, but it's a solid chunk of steel, and pretty dang accurate.

    CHEAPIES (UNDER $100) BOUGHT IN PAST 4 YRS.

    Top five are a variety (Titan, 2 Ravens, Excam and another Raven) of US .25acp, three in original boxes. Left is .22rf 4-bbl Mossberg "Brownie" from the '20s. Middle is Model 1927 Liliput 4.25mm. Right is very early (sn 1000) Iver Johnson .32S&W with a nose job and bobbed hammer for easier removal from pocket. Interesting to note that only 2 Liliputs I had seen offered for sale were $1,000 each. This I got at online auction for under $100. In my opinion, I would only consider the little .25acp semi-autos as "Saturday Night Specials."

    Sorry for the poor resolution. It was a cheap camera.

    I got this old Beretta Jetfire for about $120. As you can see, it has no safety and is marked 6.35mm (instead of .25ACP). It was also made in Italy, as opposed to being made in Maryland.

    I made these pics by scanning these guns on my PC scanner;
    can't get any cheaper than that.

    Those are actually surprisingly acceptable for just being scanned. In other news, I love the pic with .25 + .25 = .50. That is high quality.
