    I was surfing our GA gun swap boards this morning and I saw a "must sell quick" ad letting two go very cheap. The guns were a like new Glock 26 with 3 mags for $350 and a like new Walther PK380 with 2 mags for $250. While I'm not a Glock fan, they make great trading material and at that price I called and said I'd take it. I setup the meet for just after quitting time today. About a half hour before I was going to leave for the day, the fella called me and said he really needed to sell both guns today and asked if I'd give him $550 for the pair.

    At that price I couldn't pass them up so I bought both of them and the Walther came with 50 rounds of premium defensive ammo. The young soldier was happy to get the cash he really needed and I got 2 nearly new guns really cheap. No, I didn't need either but they will make good trade material when I figure out if I need anything special. My new gun cash fund is now officially empty so no more until I sell some stuff...

    How much do you want for that G26? I've always not ever wanted one. They are so the opposite of purty and fit my hand great ,just like a football bat!! Super accurate and reliable up to 4feet and will loan you money and let you drink it's beer too.

    Nah, once again Dave your deals amaze me. I never get that lucky. They are both good to trade with. I've seen two walther pk380's for sale lately, $390 and $400, but they had nickel slides. Think you can get another 1911 for the pair? :D

    While y'all like to give me hell about my rotating inventory, I guarantee that none of you folks would have passed up this deal. The Walther is headed home with me today as a gift for the wife. I know she'll be happy it as it matches her beloved P22. It's a spiffy little gun and from everything I've read & heard a very soft shooter. I won't have the Glock long as a G26 is probably the most popular gun in this part of GA and I'll get something good for it for sure...

    Congrats! Let me know how you like the Walther, I'm looking at a .380 for my first carry, and the PK380 has the advantage of being carryable in condition 1.

    The Glock 26 is arguably the most in demand pistol on the local swap board I frequent. They'll get snapped right up at $500 every time.

    Say what you will about Glocks, but if you're a trader it'll entice all kinds of deals.

    What are theses poor young soldiers doing that they need money so bad they are will to basically give away their guns at pawn shop prices?

    I've been through many a tough time in the trades, but I would never sell my guns, my tools or my truck. Now that I have a family the house and kids would be included in that group. ;)

    I guess I'm just jealous, my gun store is raising prices like all hell. :mad: Used to be a very valued customer. . . I see many a firearms transfer coming through their shop via online until they quit this crap.

    GREAT FIND NGIB!!! SEND SOME LUCK OUT TO SOUTHERN COLORADO!!!

    Diggs, I had to sell guns while I was serving to make ends meet at times. The pay still sucks below E-5.

    The Walther has a new home. The wife said - it's cute, it's mine.

    She loves her P22 and I'm happy that the PK380 feels so similar to her. She shoots the P22 very well and I think the PK380 will be a great gun for her...
