Hey guys! I'm not dead, I swear. Though I do feel like a zombie some days. However, all my hard work has payed off, and I'm about to welcome a new member into the family. However, today I saw an old "fling", and now my mind is no longer made up. There has been a S&W 1076 sitting at a local pawn shop for months, but the guys there want $900 for it, WAYYYY too much. They have thought it was an FBI gun. I emailed S&W about its FBIness, and got a slightly nebulous answer in the negative. Regardless of the answer's vagueness, it was clearly enough to shake the pawn shop guy's blind faith that they had an FBI gun. They are beginning to entertain the idea that I'm right about it not being an FBI gun. However, all parties are now aware that the only REAL way to know for sure is a $50 history letter from S&W. They don't want to pay $50, and I don't want to do it, just to have them decide to not sell me the gun for a realistic price. The good thing is that pawn shop guys are like dogs, and some cash in their face will make them drool. I'm thinking $600 might do the trick given the new doubts about the gun's origins. Well, I was so sure about it. I was gonna try my best to get the 1076, and if it fell through, I'd go get a G33 or G26 for ankle carry at work. The G29 is kind of heavy in my boot (you read that right). Well, today I went to check out a local gun shop that just moved into an old grocery store building. They tripled in size, and opened a new indoor range. I remembered they had a used, new production Colt Delta Elite a few months back, and decided to check on it. It was still there. But next to it was a NEW, new production CDE, for $75 LESS!!!. I think the prices got mixed up during the move, because the used one used to be $975, but now it's $1050, and the new one is $975. I've always been a sucker for Deltas, and that seems like a good price for a new one. So, I'm torn. What should I do? Obviously, this gun will be a shooter. I have no use for a safe queen. I'm thinking I'll try to get the S&W first, since it's the harder to find gun, and if they won't budge on the price, I'll buy the Delta. Choices. What say you, old 10mm faithful?
