I would love to see pics, too!
As soon as you buy a gun you lose a 1/4 of its value. Unless for a one in a hundred chance it becomes collectable. People asking near retail for a used gun are out of their greedy minds. Go try selling an old car for retail and see what happens.

Good to know. Maybe it's just a local thing, but knocking more than ten percent rarely works. I'd buy used online, but the FFL transfer usually eats the savings...
