    God, I can't help myself...

    A buddy called a few days ago in need of raising some quick cash, he had a 1988 Ultimate Finish Colt Government he wanted to sell, I happily gave him the $500 asking price for the gun, three mags, a box of "Silvertips," a Galco belt (which I might get around my thigh ;-) and Hi-Ride holster, a Gordon Davis "Security" (Summer Special), the box and all papers, including the warranty card. He dropped it off this afternoon, looks like the Sig 220 will stay in lay-awake a few weeks longer (quite a few).

    Say after me - ''I OD have sinned"!!

    Not only have you bought another gun before the 220 is home and dry but - you have achieved something of a steal.

    That is super nice (whole package) and - OK - you are forgiven - some things just have to be done I am showing a hint of green about my gills!

    That's one nice gun! I'm not even a 1911 fella, but that makes me green with envy!

    Very nice package deal for the price!
    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the weaponry to make the difference.

    So tell me...do you have guilt about the purchase price? You should. But not for that long. Enjoy the new toy.

    Thumbs up Congrats OD

    OD adds a very fine pistola to his collection.
    Wow! Great condition.
    Hope it turns out to be a reliable shooter for you.
    If it shoots as good as it looks then you absolutely stole it!

    Great deal on the package, and that Colt looks awesome. Is it a polished stainless or nickel finish? Congrats!

    Thanks fellas, I appreciate it.

    Chris,
    I have started the Hail Mary's and John Browning's.

    QK,
    The owner and I have been friends for years, so I know the weapon, dead nuts reliable.

    Duck,
    It is polished stainless, I wanted to buy a Ultimate Python when they were introduced, really wish I would have after seeing this;

    Rock,
    Thanks amigo.

    Bruce,
    I would love to hear your first thoughts.

    Thanks Bud,
    I do still plan on getting the 220, just not as soon as I had hoped.

    exposurecontrol,
    Thanks pal.

    CopperKnight,
    No sir, no guilt whatsoever. Better do an extra Hail John eh?

    Delta,
    I sold my first one like a dummy, I think I'll keep this one. I'll keep you in mind though.

    WJP9,
    Leather goodies that came w/ the Gubmint.
