    Two gun purchases; Couldn't help myself

    Noticed Buds had a bunch of G22 LE trade ins for 369.00. I stopped by this past Saturday and was allowed to go thru their inventory. I found one of their Gen 3's with factory adjustable sights that was in 95% condition. The guy told me they would have some used G27 trade ins this week.

    So I stopped by and sure enough, for 369.00 they had a bunch of G27's that were in about 80% condition.

    So the guy says, since you're LE, I have one new Gen 4 G27 left for 415.00.

    So, out the door I went, with a like new Gen 3 22, and a new Gen 4 27.
    I am such a push over !

    No pics tonight, but I'll give a range report of them both with pics in a few days.

    Nice... Wish I could find a nice G21 for that kind of money.

    I should be so lucky as to live that close to Buds, so long as they furnished a complimentary divorce lawyer.

    Two-a-day pulls are on my bucket list. You were thinking on a 27, weren't you?

    Congratulations!!! New Glock Gen 4's around here go for $559, used ones in decent condition are around $450. Sounds like you got one heck of a deal.

    As much as I am not a fan of Glock I more than likely would have went for the Gen. 4 and not a bad price glad you hook them up.

    Great pickup. I loved Buds long before I ever made it to Kentucky... just makes me wish I lived in Lexington so I could visit more often.

    (And reading this makes me wish my big paws would fit on a Baby Glock- or that I had the guts to start chopping on one to cut the finger grooves off.)

    Nice! I've bought at least half a dozen guns from Bud's but all my purchases have been online- I'm a thousand miles or more from them. Must be sweet to be able sort through their extensive stock!

    I would be in the dog house all the time if I lived near Bud's. Nice find. I really enjoy my Gen 4 G27.

    Great price on the LEO trade. Add about seventy five to that for what they are asking for beaters around here. The blue label price is fifteen more than it was here pre-scramble. Not bad at all.

    Sounds like a really good deal. Glad they roll out the welcome mat for LE.
