Default I may have been taken advantage of...







It is a 1966 model 19-2. They had it marked $219, but I got them to come down to $200 OTD.

I told them it was my birthday (it was). Maybe they thought I should have a present.

Good purchase.

...Probably paid the guy less than half of the $200 they charged you.......NICE FIND..! ; )

PS, just read of a member that found a pre war registered magnum in a pawnshop and got it for about $300....

It pays to Be On The Look Out!

As it was, you only committed robbery. If you were holding the gun during this transaction it would be considered armed robbery.

Youd be suprised how often the birthday thing works, especially if you frequent the shop.

Kinda makes up for all those times we have all gone into a pawn shop and tried to buy something that could be bought new for cheap at the local Wally World and couldn't get the pawn guy to come down a dime. AND had to listen to the story that he told about how the item was a special purchase from a little old lady that only used it a couple of times and they don't make them like this any more.

Good job on rescuing a nice old Smith!
