Well, I don't know if he would do a transfer for me. I could always ask. Do you think they would charge me a fee for the service? Can't imagine they would take their time for nothing...and if they get their fee, I suppose they would; but again, I don't really know.
That really is a good price on the CZ. It just felt like I was holding a box instead of a hand grip. Like the 1911 (which I did like), but the grip felt like an old 305 model telephone hand set.
I know what you mean about the guys at the gun show hoping you'll get caught up in the moment. It's the same with home auctions. You really have to know what you are willing to pay before you go in. As a consolation, if you know what the guns are worth, you can ask to handle their inventory without feeling guilty.
I called up a gun dealer to ask if they had a CZ75B that I could shoot at the range. He didn't, but he had a used model for only 379.00 that wouldn't last long at that price. I thanked him and promptly found them all over the web at that price new. I won't feel guilty about handling his guns with no intention to buy!
