Trying to figure out how to get there. Missed a great deal last year on an all stainless BERSA .22. I was too dumb to buy it. :oops: Been kicking myself since last year.

Have to attend a pistol instructor's training class so my buddy can use my son as his "student" for the class.

Hey, I'm picking a Sig P229 in .40 from him on Saturday also!!! Cool beans. When I leave it's going right to the range for inspection and a qualification, then straight in the holster it goes. Good is excited. Good has been eyeing one of these for almost 2 years now, but hasn't been able to afford one. Finally Good saw a nice deal for a tutone in CDNN's catalog and couldn't resist, particularly with a tax return coming. :D

TK is also excited. I tried a 229 last fall at Bill's gun show and fell in love. Also hampered by price, even for used versions, until CDNN came out with this deal. I'm also getting the 2-tone.

Sadly, I have enough going on in my schedule that I won't be able to get to the range until the following Thursday (unless I shuffle things around and go on Saturday afternoon/evening straight from the show... hmm, now you got me thinking....).

And of course, Bill's spring show is the next weekend, and I will be there on Saturday. The Sig will be with me.

Anybody get any screaming deals? Anybody see anything interesting? I'd love to see some pics of your new acquisitions.

While testing out my Sig at Bill's yesterday, I talked to a guy who picked up a used Mitchell Gold Series 1911 .45 ACP in stainless, for $400. I only looked at it briefly, but it seemed to be in really good shape. He also showed me a 3" group that he shot at 75 feet, which I thought was pretty impressive.

My own take is that the best time for really good deals is at the very beginning and very end of the show. Good stuff that is underpriced gets snapped up quickly; the desire not to haul stuff home, yet again, (particularly if combined with low sales) will, sometimes, get dealers to offer good prices near the end.

Some just ignore the noncompliant signs and carry discreetly.

Mark Koscielski ("lastgunshop") had a nice batch of Beretta 96D MN State Patrol trade-ins for sale including 3 mags, and Safariland duty holster and dual mag carrier for $299.

Had to purchase one because:
a) it was a great deal on a classic LE pistol, and
b) Mark's a great guy to do business with.

Thanks Mark!

I picked up a new to me Colt Agent. After getting it home and looking more closely, it is in really good condition. Very little wear and the barrel appears to have very little wear. The rifling is very crisp still. I paid $330 out the door. I have been watching Gunbroker for the last couple of weeks trying to get an idea of what they go for and most there of the same condition are going for $400 and more.

PS. Don't tell anyone, but I ignored the non-compliant signs are carried a loaded firearm in the building. Shhhhh. :D
