Passed on something I shoulda bought today.

Was wandering around the LGS today and saw a Colt Officers pistol in .22 cal. Don't know anything about them but this one looked to be in good shape. Price was 450+tax. I may go back tomorrow and take a closer look.

You snooze, you lose!

Happened to my a number of times.

New gunshop opened last week, they took in a "PRE-MOD17" S&W, in their case for @350. I'm still dealing with obama's economy for last six months.
The above needs some TLC. [like at my home!]

You had best PM me with the LGS name and phone number
so that I can buy the gun and check it out for you.

If it checks out for me, you will have saved money.

Congrats, sounds like you've got a line on what could be
a great pistol at an even better price.

If it is in good shape, that would be a bargain in my neighborhood.

If it checked out okay I would have immediately whipped out my credit card. My wife would be glad that I didn't run across it.

If you say to yourself the following:

"DO WANT!!!"

Then BUY if you have the money, even if just barely. This has become abundantly clear to me in my years of firearms. You must snatch them as they come. Keep in mind you can always resell them.
