    I'm not normally a lucky person. I wasn't even looking for a gun when I found this at a garage sale. $1000, had to have it. Whats your best deal for 2012? Mods, move if this is in the wrong spot, thanks.

    I bought a 99% .45-70 Ruger No.3 with box for $350. Definately my deal of the year.

    It's hard for me to pick just one so....

    Stainless Steel Ruger Police Six chambered in .357 excellent condiiton for $325.
    Sig 239 9mm with Hogue grips and Sig Nite Sights, used, in the box with paperwork and spare magazine for $425.

    About to place an order for a new Kahr MK9 for under $450 via the NRA Instructor discount program.

    Hard to say. There was a 4" Colt Python blue and rather minty for $1,300, A Colt Government Series 70 (early) Mark IV for $700 and another Colt Government Series 70 Gold Cup NM for $1,000 and both the Colt Governments show very little wear.

    This is still 2012 and this afternoon I may look at a S&W Model 19 in a 6" barrel. The asking price is $400 but I have not handled the gun yet, it looks nice but looks can be deceiving. So this evening after work I'll know if I own that gun. :)

    There were a few others but those were likely the buys I was most content with.

    No brainer for me!
    In a nutshell, a complete stranger, who had heard I was a "gun guy", got up with me where I worked and gave me two rifles, absolutely free, because his wife wanted them "out of the house". Said, "If you would take these off my hands, I'd appreciate it." :eek:
    One was a Khyber Pass copy of the Martini Henry Calvary carbine.
    The other was a Westinghouse Mosin!
    I got $305 on GunBroker for the Mosin, the Khyber I still have.
    I'll die of old age before something like that happens again!

    That's a tough one as I purchased a Ruger 44 mag carbine for $350 and a S&W Model 610 for $500. Granted the 610 required an additional $200 in repair but all together thats still less than the going price for a S&W Model 610. So for 2012 I got some real deals but also picked up 2 model 17-4's, another 29-3 and of course my first BBQ gun which was my Christmas present to myself. It was a Talo Colt (the Ricardo) with all of the trimmings. All in all it was a good year for additions to my collection.
    I can't wait to see what 2013 brings my way. Here's hoping everyone has a safe and pleasant holidays. Have a Merry New Year and a Happy Christmas

    C&R eligible S&W K-38 with a 6-inch barrel. Beautiful looking gun for $400 shipped to my door. Not bad considering there are no pawn shops or anybody with used inventory nearby.

    Bought 5 tickets for a total of $20 for a raffle. Won a new Remington 887 Nitro Mag shotgun. Best deal I've had in a while.

    My best deal this year has got to be the Ruger SR1911 I picked up for $550. I already had one, but I couldn't pass up that deal.

    If you asked me last year it certainly would be my svt-40 for $225. This year I have to go with a clean Redhawk in .44 mag with 600 rounds of ammo for $500.

    Had three this year: 1908 Colt Vest Pocket (1916) home made wood grips, no finish but no pits, either. Astra Cub in 22Short, 90%, needed a magazine and an Ithaca M37 DSPS 5-shot with the stock sawn off at the pistol grip. $125 each. Found a stock for the Ithaca in a box of stuff at the local gunsmith, $25, OTD.

    For me it had to be a Ruger 10/22 sporter for $200 cash, it was in near mint shape came with a soft case, 3-9x scope and a couple of BX-25 magazines. I bought it from a guy in the parking lot at a local gun show (he and I were both giving up and leaving at the same time, and while walking to the car I asked about the gun he was carrying....

    Per my post #6 an update. The best purchase of the year was that S&W Model 19-2 for $350. I was ready to pay the $400 asking price and as I always ask what is the best you can do? The guy said $350 and I said sold. He wanted cash for Christmas shopping. He was happy and I am real happy.

    That should do it for 2012. :)

    Remington Wingmaster, dirty as heck at a pawn shop for $150. Vent rib barrel, kills doves just fine, if I do my part.

    Have one deal that started in 2012, but will finalize in 2013. Looking forward to that gun. :)

    Bought 3 BP revolvers for $60. They all needed work but I sold one that didn't work for $80, sold the best one that was the easiest to fix for $100 and have the last one that I am planning on keeping but could sell it for $100 - $150 easy if I get bored with it.

    Or it was the 4 unissued East German AK74 Bakelite magazines I bought for $20 when each one is worth $40 each.

    I think I did pretty good. Always looking for a good deal. :)

    I bought a S & W 629 for 400 and traded it for NIB Glock 19 with box, papers still wrapped up and 3 17 round clips. Pretty good deal for me since I can't shoot 44magnums anymore after wrist surgery.
