I need to be Shot!

I had an acquaintance offer me their G33 Wednesday.....however, his email went to my junk folder and I didn't see it until today (Sunday). cuss/cuss/swear/swear/profanity/profanity/profanity!!!!

He needed to sell it by Saturday! He ended up selling it to a gun shop for $250. This was his only 357sig, he was getting out from under it and was wanting to buy a Ruger 45 Long Colt.

Moral of the story....check your junk/spam mail!!

Your friend texted your land line and sold a $400-450 gun to a gun shop for $250, rather than wait another week to get his Ruger. I'm thinking this is not your smartest friend.

For comparison, last year I bought a new old-stock Ruger Vaquero (Old Model) - first year production model:

TOP GUNS *357 Sig* Club

and I never came close to being foolish enough to part with a 357 Sig!!! I went the all-American route - kept my guns and went into debt!

Actually, he's pretty intelligent.

That's just the way he is. We had conversed 6-12 mos ago about him selling it to me. He finally made up his mind. When he makes his mind up about doing something, it's Katie-bar-the-door, he's in full swing.....same with a new car, tractor, riding lawn mower, land, pocket knife etc.

Supposedly, he and his wife have an agreement, he can buy as many guns as he wants, but he has to get rid of the equal amount. So he has to get rid of one to buy another. He found the Ruger on Monday, decided to sell the G33 on Wed and sent me the email on Wed. He was picking up the Ruger on Saturday. Not sure what he paid for the Ruger.

In his cell phone, he has my land line as the cell number and my cell for the land line. We've since corrected this.
