To make a long story short, at my last range session around Thanksgiving my daughter (35yo teacher) fell in love with a little .38 snubbie (1st Generation Charter Arms Undercover) I fixed up. As usual, she took it home (I seem to "lose" a lot of guns when I take my kids shooting?). I thought I'd just shop around for a replacement, thinking I'd have no trouble finding another Charter, Taurus or S&W snubbie, maybe even step up to a .357. After two months of looking at the local stores and a few gun shows I've seen plenty of new ones but almost no used snubbies! In fact almost no used revolvers period. One local store told me that when they get a used revolver in as a trade or for consignment, they seldom have it on sale for more than 24 hours before someone takes it. Another store said they just aren't getting many revolvers in for the last 6 months or so. They both said that a lot of first time buyers cleaned them out of all their used and many of their new snubbies and other revolvers at Christmas. Anybody else run into or notice this? Or is it just a weird local issue here in Illinois?
