    SCORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Some guy walked into the shop with an old SW box saying he found this in his grandma's attic. SW model 38 bodyguard airweight. It was im amazing shape, looks unfired. In the box was the original cleaning kit, never opened or used, and a receipt dated 1976 and 5 lead nose .38's. I think someone bought the gun with a box of ammo,loaded it, and left it as you see it now.I offered $40, he took it. He said it was either that or he was going to the police station with it.

    That is a beauty. It is in too good shape to carry especially a early model Bodyguard.

    Well, I'm of two minds about the low-ball. You gave the guy what it was worth to him... the alternative being likely destruction by the PD, or appropriation by a cop, for which the guy would have gotten nothing.

    Arguably the honorable or honest thing would have been to give him fair value... but I can't honestly say what I would have done myself.

    On that note, I've _got_ to get a job at a gun store.

    Why would anybody give you a hard time for getting a gun that cheap? AFAIK you are in the busisness of buying and selling firearms. You are supposed to make a profit in your business.
    Now, the customer already stated that he was going to give the gun to the PD and we know that may mean the destruction of the firearm. You made an offer, he accepted. He had no idea of the value nor chose to inform himself before commiting to the sale on the value of such gun.

    And I will offer $82.50 and a pound of guava jelly fresh from the cuban maker in Miami

    mmmmm guava jelly is yummy. BUT i think im gonna hold out to see what smith and wesson says, it says 8 weeks to get the full history, a early model smith in 100 percent is a keeper. But i agree, they are saying its bad for business, etc. I told the guy straight out your best bet is going private sale, a pawn shop won't give you that much. Then he asked for my offer, stating the PD thing so i said F it, 40 bucks. That forum has its underwear on too tight, idk why i even go on there anymore.
