    Monkeys fall out of trees!!!!!!!


    My 21 yr old son is asked by one of his co workers if hes interested in buying a 110 Savage( no accutrigger) 300 Win Mag. Hard rifle case, cleaning kit, box of shells, leather sling, topped with a 3x9-44 Simmons Scope for $200.00

    I tell the boy, if he don't I will.

    He bought it.
    Looks like New, guy probably had less than a box thru it.

    A guy I work with says he wants to sell his S&W SW9ve W/five mags, and the case/paperwork (he bought it new in Dec. 2008), and has a hogue slip-on for $180.00

    He wants to buy an XD in .45 for a trail/camp gun, and one shop offered him $100, and another offered him $140.

    I tell him what the heck, for that price, Oakey-Doakey.

    Not nearly as good a trigger as my M&P9c, but this really doesn't seem to bad a pistol.

    Better trigger than my Kel-tec P11 tho.

    He has run 2000+ rounds thru, with all mags, without any hiccups, and that it eats anything from wolf to Remington white to S&B Federal, FMJ, Hollowpoints.

    Thing is clean as a whistle.

    Sounds like you and your son both found pretty good deals.

    As far as the 9VE, the trigger isn't great, but the newer production models are reliable. It makes for a decent back-up gun in case your primary goes down and you need something now.

    Knowing the right people, at the right time can sometimes yield benefits. Sounds like you did good.

    The SIGMA gets a bad rap, but if one's budget is limited, it's a great choice.
