This may not be the absolute best deal from a strictly financial perspective, but it's the one that always makes me smile. I saw an S&W Model 29 listed on consignment at my LGS for $800 and called to ask about condition - was told "it looks pretty good" so I asked them to hold it for me and got in the car. Well, I guess it did look "pretty good" - it turned out to be an unfired 29-2, P&R, 6.5" barrel, i.e., the "Dirty Harry" model, in the mahogany presentation case with all tools and paperwork, including the original buyer's receipt. I couldn't get my checkbook out fast enough. It remains my one and only Safe Queen.

I bought a 6 inch Colt Anaconda .44 Mag from a work mate for 300.00 bucks. Perfect condition, got a western style holster rig with .44 loops and a couple boxes of empty's. The guy was too intimidated by the recoil, sold it to me for cash to buy a 9mm auto LOL. hdbiker
