The Luxury of Electronic Gun Trading
Yesterday morning I woke up thinking it might be time to trade one of my snubbie revolvers that's very nice... but I just wasn't enthralled with it anymore... Kinda casually wondering what else might be out there.
So I put a short sell-or-trade blurb and a pic of the gun up on Armslist.
Got three hits on it within an hour, one of which definitely appealed to me... an even trade on an "old" but highly respected S&W 4506 .45 auto.
The guy was legally credentialed, friendly, serious, motivated and less than 10 miles away. We chatted briefly a couple times via cell phone, met in a gunstore parking lot, and by brunch time we BOTH had "new" guns that we're very happy with. He REALLY wanted what I had, and I REALLY wanted what he had. Win-Win.
At NO COST to either of us... Idea to fruition time was about 3 hours!
If any new laws mess with such experiences, it'd be a real shame...
What did Mrs. Bullet say to Mr. Bullet? ... "We're having a BeeBee!"...
IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!... IF THE GUN FITS, SHOOT IT!
"Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it."
