    Ok People! Fess up!

    So.... I decided to go Revolver like I mentioned in another post and started hunting for a good deal online. I remember that somebody mentioned Summit Gunbroker as a good place to get inexpensive weapons and checked them out. I contacted Mark about a month or so ago and he told he had a good number of them in stock.

    Yesterday I finally had all my monies ready and called him to order a S&W 65 like these....



    ...and to my surprise, Mark said I was just in time. It seems that all of the sudden there was a whole bunch of people interested & buying the revolvers! Since his website has been posted in more than one ocassion here, I wanna know who are the darn culprits that almost left me without a gun!

    For those interested the 65 is a lot from the Texas Department of Corrections and for sale at $255.

    Not guilty! And that seems a pretty good price too.

    That sounds like a great deal, but when buying a used gun, especially one used as a duty weapon I really prefer a in person inspection. But for $255 it's hard to pass up.

    NC, I that was on my thoughts, but it is a darn good deal and if it requires some work, I wont mind too much. I think it will be fun to make it a project. I have a couple of buddies that are S&W freaks that I know won't mind guiding me through the work.

    Chris.... Me thinks thou protest too much?
    Kidding aside, if this guy is selling good firearms at a good price, I am happy we all get a chance to get them and for him to do good business.

    Congrats Miggy!

    I'm still looking for a 3" M65 or M13 to replace a couple I was stupid enough to let get away.

    I wish it were me LOL . But sadly with my limited budget Revolvers are pretty much off my shopping list for the time being . I think they may well be easyer to find and aquire in the near future than some other guns so i am trying to lay in the others now lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
