Default Traded the Kimber

I had to take all four cats to the vet this week for shots, exams, one X-ray and one blood panel. The vet earned just under $600. for these services.

Because we're moving at the end of the month, this cut severely into our moving money. My stainless Kimber Pro Carry II was a nice pistol, but I never really warmed up to it. So I listed it on a CA gun forum where I trade a lot. I made the ad for cash, or a Ruger GP100 and cash. At one o'clock, I'm trading the Kimber for a 6" blue GP100 with only 50 rounds fired plus cash.

That will put some money back into out moving fund and it will give me back the handgun of my forum name. I can't very well be CA357 without a .357, now can I?

Assuming the trade happens, I'll post pics later after the deal is done.

Sounds like you worked a potential bummer into a workable situation.

Good deal CA! What's that old saying?

Good alternative to a tough situation Don. (or should I say CA357)

Now you can forget about that girl named gun () and look forward to getting a Colt some where down the road!

It's a done deal. I swapped for a like new blued 6" GP100 plus some dough.

Now I have to wait ten days to bail it out of stinkin' Kalifornia gun jail.

Sounds like a win win situation to me. You now are a proud .357 owner again. Good deal Don.
