Default Pandemic Pricing

Pandemic pricing has certainly slowed my accumulation down, but it has also given me time to enjoy what I already have. Here are a few of my favorites. A 649-3, a 64-3 and a 617-1.

Care to share some of your favorites?

Very nice collection. Like you, I am happy with what I already have. Would be pretty tough nowadays to get a deal on any handgun. Enjoy them in good health.

Firearms and ammo are in short supply and command premium prices. Enjoy what you have.

My local gun shop sold a box of 50 magtech .357 yesterday for $65. I thought that was crazy. People are bidding over $200 for a single box of 50 .357

While out of town on Monday stopped at a small town gun shop to see what they had, owner said he had no 38/357/9mm/380 but did have some 40 and 45. Also shop was down to 2 used handguns. Medium sized and compact handguns appear to be the hot sellers. The fly in the ointment is ammo availability, if I was shopping I'd be inclined to go with a 45 auto based on better availability of ammo and mags. As for prices if you have to ask how much you can't afford it.

I have actually taken the recent covid times to sell a few pieces. I still have a couple things I want, but I can wait. I think. All in all, I have a reasonably well rounded collection. I am not into J frames and the 2 K snubs I have is enough. I have an excess of grips, but I like to change them around. Gotta be patient

Majick47, Respectfully, it's not that I can't afford it, it's just that I am unwilling to pay artificially inflated prices. As for ammo, I have more ammo than I'll ever shoot.

Narragansett, I'd like to find some more nice grips, too, but as I said, I'm allergic to inflatated prices. You're right, patience is the key.

I think it’s the demand that’s driving the prices up plus we’re seeing greedy sellers. Just wait and see if these prices increase even more. Your going to be happy to have what we have. Trust my the Klingon hole guns will look good too.

I used the occasion to get rid of some 44 mag I wasn't going to shoot. Too powerful for my old self and my model 69. Sold some for 70 cents a round and some for 88 cents per round, a lot less than the going rate but a lot more than I paid for it. A win-win as far as I'm concerned.

Fortunately, I have all the guns on my "must have" list. My "wish list" guns are too expensive or unavailable right now.

I felt I had to stop going to the range during the pandemic but I just got my second vaccine shot and am looking forward to going shooting for the first time in a long time in about 10 days.

Not everyone is trying to get exaggerated prices now. Seek out gun shows and the local gun list online, As an example, in the last couple of weeks, I have sold a 4566, a 65 Lady Smith and a 64 three inch. The 4566 sold for $ 550, the LS for $ 700, and the 64 $ 600. All were in excellent condition.

I just went browsing again, every revolver I clicked on either said “OUT OF STOCK” or “DISCONTINUED”. But they show pistols in stock, plastic I guess. What revolvers I seen in the past the prices have doubled.

I’m like a kid with a $1 in the drug store in the 50’s the candy rack is empty. All those big 5 cent candy bars are gone.
