I stopped at my favorite LGS (to pick up proceeds from the consignment sale of a M16A1 I had built)... And "almost" brought these three home but I stifled the impulse! (Which is unusual for me)

A H&R top-break Model 925 .38spl top break from sometime 1964-72. I had never seen one before nor heard of this model. Was in great shape, priced at $225 and looked just like this

A Bersa BP9CC. This gun has a great trigger and reset and is thin and easy to carry (I had one before and sold it). Priced right at $220 it was the FDE model. It looked like this one.

I didn't being any of them home... But came close!

What guns did you "almost" acquire recently, but didn't?

Not a day I go to the gun shop that I don’t almost come home with something. Local farm store has a threaded XDM 9mm. Good price too $459. I don’t like the tall suppressor sights or I’d have it.

Another semi-local shop has a stainless Ruger 1911 Commander that I’ve almost bought a few times. Might become mine next time. It’s used but in good condition and $550.

Philmo, press those elevated sights out of the XDM and press in lower ones;) I love my 1911 Commander, I'm sure you "need" one too. Just trying to help you get those two pistols:devilish:

New sights raise the cost. Trijicon night sights will run me about $125. As for the Commander, I have 2 baby rocks and 5 full size 1911s. I don't need one but then I've never bought one based on need...

I been resisting a few that Gators got in lately. He's off his gouging high horse finally. Im holding off for a 7.62x39 bolt to come in. Im at the point where i have enough guns. I do plan to trade 2 revolver later too. The grips are to small to shoot them well. Im after a 32 cal revolver with normal grips and at least a 6 inch barrel. Then i may enjoy shooting my 32 sw longs.

Wanted so badly to bid on this baby Vaquero today…chambered in .32 H&R Mag…. then I saw the barrel/ roll marks

so much legal-ease crap… most I’ve ever seen on a barrel (thought it was engraving at first). Ruger will not be getting my business.

I keep,saying I’m done buying but then I get an itch. Recently I’ve gotten into playing with the AR’s. I just built my first kit and now I’m starting to up grade and paint it. After I set it up with an optic, I think I’m going to ether build another one or upgrade my M&P 15 with a trigger…..maybe both.

Bought my youngest son (for his 30th birthday) an optics ready Walther PDP compact 4" 9mm while at the LGS yesterday. Very very nice trigger / reset.

He was thrilled to say the least.

So... I "almost" got to take it home... I rode in the car with it as we drove home together :) (we live next to each other)

Paid $609
