I resisted the impulse of buying the Phoenix HP22 yesterday for $160.00. This morning I called my FFL buyer and got a location where a used one was for $119.00. I quickly trotted down to the participating gun shop and there it was, like brand new. The little shooter had the original box, all the papers and instruction manual, plus a trigger lock.
I snagged a 375/box of CCI copper plated round nose, stopped for gas, and did not spend over $153.00 for the entire experience. Came home, dropped the shooter in a bucket of oil, disassembled, cleaned, reassembled, and out the door to the range. Popped 50 rounds for confirmation and headed home to introduce the little one to the family.
It was a good day...
