$50 out of $950 is making you lose sleep? Consider yourself lucky that it wasn't a $50 down payment and you were owed $900.

Go have a beer and plan your next purchase

You didn't loose the gun, you lost fifty bucks.

You sold the gun.

yes yes yes ....what i guess i am failing to mention is that i SERIOUSLY loved that gun...I only sold it due to bills i needed to pay....I also sold it with the understanding that if he were ever to get rid of it then i wanted to be the first with the chance to buy it back. So iREALLY am losing my gun....it was never the $50, it was the fact that ole bessy is gone :'-(

Here is my screen name, can i call the authorities in that county and tell them my gun was picked up off of a gent they arrested for DUI? I was the original owner and it is registered to me.....

Do you think i would get the gun back?
Oh, so sorry....when did they get gun registration in Texas?

perhaps you should have never sold the gun in the first place.....however, I fully understand the need to pay bills, and I'm not faulting you for selling the gun to make ends meet. But, the second you sold that gun you sold your ownership rights, and that can be a hard pill to swallow.

Best of luck for getting over your loss

you sold the gun, got shorted $50 and want to buy it back but it is in the posesion of your local LE. The guy chared with DUI owns the gun so if you want THAT gun you have to buy it from him after he gets it back.

Take the 900 you sold it for and find the same gun somewhere else(i doubt its that unique)

Life lesson #438
Payment in full even between friends.
Cost of the lesson (just for you) $50.
Move on, who knows your buddy may come up with the $50 at some point.

Either way not a bad price for life lesson #438, I paid a lot more for mine.

this was the first fire arm i purchased for myself...its the first one i customized, took apart, cleaned well...yadda yadda....It may not be unique but it was special to me.

So basically you want the gun back and keep the 900?
