Default New Purchases

Two weeks ago I was at a LGS that I frequent with $900 in my pocket. Picked out NIB SA Range Officer for $800. Was all the way to telling the clerk I'll take it when I saw a used Colt 1991A1 in the case for $500. I took a look at it and thought a Colt for that price how could I go wrong. Bought the Colt shot it that same weekend I was happy with the purchase. Still had $400.

Then this past weekend I was at the Bill Goodman Show in Dayton. My intention was to purchased reloading supplies, which I did. I was looking around and saw a RIA which I have looked at on several occasions for $400. I took a look and realized I still had the $400 that I saved by not buying the Range Officer two weeks before. It came home with me.

Hey beaglesam, want to make a quick $10 on that Colt?


Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
