Default Saw a sweet gun tonight.

It was a 940 with factory wood, little blue plastic case, half a dozen moon clips, no lock. I had never handled one of these, I have no knowledge of these, I might need to get it. For a J frame it struck me as unusually dense. It didn't leave you wondering "can I shoot +p in this". Seems like it might be the grail of concealed carry.

Marked at $973, this shop always drops the price, immediately went to $570 out the door, I was thinking $500 out the door and I might jump. Impressions?

Thanks

I'd jump in way before $500. If you can get it for that, it's a very good price.

Default Try $500, If Not Buy It for $570

These are great little guns. I have one, and really like it. With all the 9MM ammo options, plus being able to use full moon clips makes this gun a winner. Being hammerless makes it a perfect pocket gun. Don't let it slip away. $570 is a good price. They are getting more scarce everday.
