Bought a Ruger LCP that was shot 9 times for $150. Tried it out...didn't like it , , was going to give it to my dad but he didn't care for it either. Ended up selling it for $260.

Bought a GLOCK 23 package for $400. It had 4 mags...2 cleaning kits (never used), 50 rds of target ammo, 50 rds of self defense ammo, a 4 gun GLOCK range bag and a Lone Wolf barrel.

Decided after a while I didnt need two of the same gun, so I sold the gun/mags/1 cleaning kit/target ammo for $500. Sold the barrel for $80.

Kept the range bag, self defense ammo and a cleaning kit.

A few months ago I bought an EAA Witness 45 from my brother for $200. After cleaning it up and changing the recoil spring I traded it for a Dan Wesson Model 32. A few weeks later I sold the Dan Wesson for $450.

Well, I feel pretty good about the purchase I made recently:

Glock 20SF with custom trigger group and Wolff recoil spring, virtually like new, for....$460.

BEST deal I ever got was a FREE Vietnam Chinese M44 Mosin, picked up after a firefight and presented to an American "advisor" with the South Vietnamese, guy gave it to me for nothing.

Very good deals indeed. I think my best one was my Colt Stainless Commander .45 w two clips..maybe had 100 rounds thru it. Had it pawned to me for $175. When they came back it was a month later but the loan was only for 2 weeks. It now resides in my safe next to my Springfield 1911 9mm Loaded model.

About 20 years ago I bought a slightly used Norinco 84s.
The guy was asking $250 since it was malfunctioning.
I paid $200 for it. A new fire control group fixed the
problem. $450 would have been a good price if it had
been working right.

Last year I bought a Glock 27, six magazines (2 13 round G23 mags with A&G magazine sleeve, two with Pearce +1 extensions, and two with regular floor plates) and 500 rounds of Wolf ammo for $500.00 total. I was pretty happy with the deal!
