To his word, and his reputation that has been proven here, he did not try to sell me the pistol first, did not try to back out of the deal he offered and made it perfectly clear that Winds had first choice. *respect*
I wanted to pick it up for my girl, who loves to shoot .22's and this would have been a great new toy.
Winds, you have made a great purchase and I know that you will be very happy with it. I look greatly forward to seeing your soon to be posted Range Report(s).
Congratulations on your soon to be new toy Lady.
No need for confession. You said "I would take it if Winds did not." You did not say renege on your deal with Winds and sell it to me. I trusted Jon enough to buy a gun from him that I have never shot as he has been a longstanding member here and I knew he would not sully his reputation and name by cheating me. I had no idea what a good deal Jon was giving me until I received numerous PM's telling me he is basically GIVING this gun to me and to take the deal. Also, I had several offers of "If you don't like it I'll buy it off you."
Let me say, I am excited to be able to have a second gun. I was always jealous of all the guns you all own. I can't think of anyone else here who only owns one gun. Well, now I have two and already have a hankering for a .357 or .38 snubbie of some sort. Maybe an LCR? Who knows? Stand back, guys, a monster has been created March, 2010 in California when someone took me to a shooting range and put an Uzi and an SKS in my hands.
I'm also happy to have a .22 as it just makes more sense to shoot that gun for fun. I really like the kick of my GP100 but it kills me how much I have to spend on ammo to shoot the heck out of it. I know have two guns...........one for business, one for pleasure.
