Default Gotta love Texas flea markets

Picked this up this morning at a rural Texas flea market. Awesome condition, looks almost unfired.

Hopefully it came with a flea market price tag!

With Plus P ammo, that should indeed kill even the largest flea.

BTW, the term is "snubby" as used here by member Snubbyfan. Not stubby.

But you got a nice gun, in my favorite type of S&W box.

I bought a nice lamp with mallard ducks on it at a flea market.

Guns seen there were usually Iver Johnson, H&R, and cheap foreign junk.

A very nice snag indeed! Heck, I'd love to find that in a LGS let alone a flea market, enjoy that one.

I've noticed that at the large flea market here, the further you go down the outdoor aisles, the vendors are grubbier, have less teeth, more tattoos, and I keep hearing fiddle music.

My best flea market find several years ago was a JP Sauer 1939 Mauser all matching except for the bolt which was all matching itself no import stamp of any kind. I made my wife stand there and hold it while I found a ATM to get the $150 the guy wanted.

When you see an empty S&W box for sale at a flea market better ask where is what came in the box. It is usually in the cab of the truck and yes it is for sale.
