    :SIGH: The decisions we are faced with sometimes.

    I hate those times when you come across a good deal that you just know you won't ever come across again, but you are not ready for it.

    I have the opertunity to pick up one of these brand new for $800.

    What to do?

    Make sure it isn't hot and figure out where to come up with the $800

    Its not hot. It is sitting in a local dealers display case. They have been unable to move it and have dropped the price. They have more of a hunting and conceal carry clientelle rather than a competition clientele.

    At the least couldn't you buy it and sell it for a profit?

    The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.

    Can't you put it on layaway? Most dealers I know offer 90 days with 10% down.

    If they're really interested in moving it, they should offer the lawaway option. A sale is a sale, after all.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,

    That hurts, it's a hard call to make, but I'd find a way to snag that.

    I think those are nice looking 1911s. At that price, I'd have a hard time not buying it-even on plastic-and promising myself I'd sell something to make up for it later.

    If that's before the $100 rebate, that's a once in a lifetime deal. If it's not, it's just a really good deal.

    Well, I followed Captain Crunch's suggeston, and went and put it on layaway this afternoon. I will have the rest of the money in a couple of weeks, just in time for that rebate that Smith & Wesson has right now.

    I didn't realize it before, but the serial number on this gun is under 1,000 also. Of course, that could be completely meaningless.

    I don't know if I am going to keep it, but I know it would have forever bothered me if I didn't get it.
