Just saw a .38 top break at a pawn shop by me; double action and all. Wanted $900 or I'd have bit. Hoping it drops considerably this year.
Aghh...I hit “like” before I read your last sentence. Sorry it’s too much money. I know exactly how you feel.
I made a couple of negotiating errors during my conversation with the owner. The first of which was not doing my homework on current pricing. I had a price range but not a specific enough offer. A price range is generally enough info to try and buy stuff but the owner is also a practiced negotiator, which is almost a lost art nowadays, and that threw me off my game a bit. He is also a super nice guy and invited me back to try again.
Sounds like a real peach. I would much prefer a 4" gun, I believe. I would do everything I could to make it happen if that were me. I hope I run into one of those one day.
I bought a CO2 pellet gun that is a Schofield replica. It's really cool and fun to shoot. Now I want the real thing.....bad. I figure it'll take me six Sundays of double time to get it. Mine will be of the .38 nickel flavor with the seven inch barrel.
Who says shooting pellet guns is cheap?!
Good luck on your quest. It took me about 8 years to get the 4" 25-9 I was looking for. It was priced a bit higher than I was happy about, but they just don't become available that often. It was my revolver of 2020. It came with the original stocks, but those S&W Targets are like gripping a 2x4. I have Ahrends on it now (Cordia wood). Shoots like a dream.
And a 3 1/2" pre-M43 Airweight 22 RF.
I have always favored short barrels, two to four inch. A couple years ago we got very lightly used Model 27 8 3/8' traded in. I let it sit for a month or so then I just couldn't stand it any longer and bought it. There was just something about the aesthetics of that long barrel.
It's a pleasure to shoot, but I don't think I'll be carrying it. (Unless I find a decent ankle holster for it, of course.)
But Im afraid it ain’t gonna happen
Well, getting another Ruger just went out the window today..........
Thank God the misso and I have separate bank accounts, because I pulled the trigger on something I always wanted today.
Should come in sometime next month, I'll start a thread when I finally get it in hand....
I started looking at gun broker yesterday and I am shocked at what they are selling for right now. I picked up my 44 7 or 8 months ago for about half of what they are going for now.
Because of this I’m now looking at some uberti saa replicas still priced really well and great guns. shot my neighbors 45 colt evil Roy and have been drooling about them since.
Anyway, I logged it in and and priced it out for the guy who prints the tags. Since then I've been repeating to myself "I don't need it. I don't need it. I don't need it."
Okay, maybe I need it. I told the boss not to put in the display case just yet.
I'm going to try to talk myself out of it this evening but, historically, I've never had much success at that.
What does "need" have to do with it?
Need is result you get when you successfully mentally convert rationalization to justification.
Two on my want list...
Two more 460 S&W's.
Kinda like the looks of the Taurus Raging Hunter in all black and a hard to find BFR. (I don't want to order one, that would be too much commitment now. Plus, they are way behind on production.
That's so cool.....didn't know that they just came out with a new one.
Redhawk in 45 colt/acp
Security 9 compact for carry duty to replace the LC9S, but, might also look at the Max9
and I like the OPs Schofield so have to put that on my want list.
