I was sooooo tempted yesterday evening,,,

In May I have two young friends who will be graduatring from Oklahoma State University,,,
So I'm on the lookout for nice .22 handguns (wheel or semi) for gifts.

I have the Charter Arms Pathfinder for one of the graduates,,,
But I still need to find something nice for the second one.

I hadn't been in The Evil Pawn Shop in over a week,,,
So I dropped for a quick peruse last night,,,
It almost cost me some money.

Mr. Evil has a very good condition S&W Model 34 snubnose in the case,,,
It has one of those Tyler T-grip attachments mounted on it.

He's asking the same price as the one he sold me in 2010,,,
$499.00 plus sales tax.

That price is a bit high for me if I were going to gift it away,,,
He will sell me a new Charter Arms 4" Target Pathfinder for $338.00,,,
I almost bought the gun just because I'm sure I could peddle it for a profit,,,
But I decided to walk away from it because I really have no good reason to own a second one.

If it were a 4" instead of a snubbie,,,
I would have taken it home with me right then.

I've already e-mailed two friends who will be interested,,,
I hope one of them buys the gun before I weaken.

I laugh every time I read one of your "evil pawn shop guy" stories.

Hello Gdawgs,,,

Not much of a story this time.

All he said to me as I walked to the revolver case was,,,
"Don't go back there Aarond, you already have one."

And a good friend you are. Whoa is me to have my toy money tied up for more Tommygun accessories, but I must bow to the Audie Murphy, Sgt. Saunders (Vic Morrow) and Sgt Rock gods!!!!

It is those evil gun shows that take all my money. There is an evil pawn shop or two around here too, like the one that has the M1903 for sale!
