    Had an unexpected visit from a former neighbor and when he came in he opened up a small handbag and brought out two wonderful revolvers, I think he was questioning if he got a good deal. After looking over a Ruger Blackhawk in .357 and an amazingly good condition S&W model 29, 6" barrel with Magnaports,, I told him that he had made a very good score, $450 for the Ruger with holster and incredibly $350 for the model 29 that had almost perfect bluing, I almost wish I'd have gotten the chance on that one and even my wife said I should check with the seller to see if he had any goodies that I could get, occasionally she feeds my gun desires, the last time that happened I was handling a handgun at Sportsman's Warehouse and she asked me if I wanted it, of course I said yes, it ended up being my CCW preferred carry.

    I had a friend call to tell me his neighbor had a couple of mod 27 S&W he wanted to sell. He told me the guy wanted $550 ea. I hadn’t seen the guns and was thinking hmmm 40 year old guns, gonna have some wear and tear so I off the cuff said if he will take &900 for both I would come the 35 miles to meet and buy them.
    He took it and lo, when I got there they are NIB. They had never been fired.
    Good for me. This is the most beautiful bluing I have ever seen on a handgun.
