S&W Model 58, 41 magnum, first year of manufacture (1964), 98% condition, $165 from pawn shop that did not have a clue as to what they had.

Ruger Super Blackhawk 7 1/2" .44 Mag, $165. To make it even better, traded that to a friend that "had" to have it for a nice pinned and recessed 6" S&W M-29

Default Best deal I ever had.

I belonged to the Missouri Vally Arms Collectors club. We had a big gun show in KC Kansas (across the river) I volunteered to watch the door, checking guns that came in to make sure they were not loaded and general security duties. I was standing in the doorway looking up and down the hall of the big convention center when I noticed a little old lady walking down the hall. She had a paper sack in here hands, holding it like it was a bomb and she was afraid it would go off if she as much as jiggled it. I left my post and long legged it down the hall. I stopped the elderly lady and asked politely. "Mam'am do you have a firearm in that paper bag. She almost jumped out of her skin and looked so guilty that I regreted using those words immediately. She stammered "Yesss Yesss, my husband died and I never knew he had a GUN in the house. I was hoping to sell it here to someone that needed one of these things." "May I look at it Mam'am I replied and she shoved the sack into my hands like it was burnig her hands. I opened it up just a little and peeked in and found myself looking at a German Luger. I pulled the Luger out and dropped the magazine and sure enough it was fully loaded. Jacking the breech up and back tossed a live round out on the floor. It frightened the little old lady so much that I thought I was going to have to call an ambulance. I asked her how much she wanted for the gun and she said brightly that her neighbor had looked at it and said he would buy it for $75. (That s.o.b) So I looked sympathetically at the little old lady and told her that she didn't need to go into the convention center where there were guns every where. I would give her the $75 for her husbands pistol. And I did. As I was leaving I told her that her husband would be happy that someone got his pistol that enjoyed the quality of workmanship that the Germans did in making their firearms. And then as a after thought I told her to go to her neighbor and tell him that he was right. The gun was worth $75. And thank him for his help.

So uh, Sarge
If the old lady's neighbor was a sob for telling her that luger was only worth $75.00 what does that make you for paying the $75?

You are just mad cause you didn't get a chance to buy it at that price.

In 9mm Luger! Most of the ones you see @ gun shows are chambered in .30
cal Luger, yet I got one in 9mm that needed a fresh spring-kit for a mere
$250! A good "shooter" is worth 4 times that!

I traded a GP100 and a RG22T for a S&W Model 25-2 (John Jovino Effector) revolver. If you can find one they run anywhere from 800 up. With about 300 in the GP100 and25 bucks in the RG I figure I made out pretty well

I spotted one on gunbroker last night that the current bid is 775.00

Haven't gotten anything for free, but I've been lucky with some deals.

a .357 security six and a .357/9mm blackhawk for $150 each.

The blackhawk was caught in a garage fire, and the guy just wanted to get rid of it. Only problem with it was the grips were a bit singed, and a dime-sized spot of bluing was damaged from some melted plastic. Had it checked out, got some replacement grips off of e-bay ($5), and it was good to go.

a Taurus m44 4" for ~$200 (can't remember the price). Bought it from a range that was going out of business, use it as my hiking/hunting backup. Shoots great.

LOL!
Loved the story, but I think I would have at least sprung for $100.

I haven't stumbled on any smokin' deals yet, not like the ones posted here. But I sure am keeping my eyes open.
