    When to my LGS to checkout a NAA Pug and a G42. They didn't have a Pug so I was looking at the 42 when a lady beside me said I have one of those for sale but with 3 magazines.
    The store employee only offered her a $200.00 for the 42. I asked her how many rounds through it (100) and her price. She said she wanted $300.00 for it and that that was a great deal because they are $429.00 inside. I offered her $250.00 and was about to walk away and she said ok, I'll take $250.00 but you only get 2 magazines. I said ok, cool.
    Got everything boxed up and was leaving and she pitched me the 3rd mag and said take it, I won't need it. My lucky day! [​IMG]

    Nice find, and think of how many who are just looking for quick cash give their guns away to gun shops, then they turn around and sell them for $100 to $150 more lol

    Was she Hawt?
    Whether she was or wasn't I'd have given her the $300.00 she wanted, especially after she threw in the third mag.
    She didn't have to do that, it was pretty nice of her to do that.

    If I hadn't just bought a HK USP 9 I would have gladly paid the $300.00. All I was looking to spend was around 250.00 on the Pug. When buying a used gun I always offer less than what they ask because I don't know how honest they are with how many rounds have been through it.
    She said 100 rounds but it was dirty as hell inside it. It took me almost an hour to get the gunk out of it. Got her cleaned and lubed and headed to the range in about 15 minutes.

    Nice grab! I'd have grabbed it too given the opportunity.

    Congrats, good deal. I don't want a G42, but I would have definitely bought one for $250.

    Mike-M, that's exactly where I was! My wife told me that when I was looking at the G42 the store had the lady told my wife that i should by her gun.
    I didn't hear her say that.
    I actually thought she just bought the gun.

    Mine probably has at least 6000 rounds through it and I wouldn't take $350 for it. That was a great deal.

    Why did she keep one of the magazines? What good would it do her if she got rid of the gun?

    She was bluffing about holding a mag back.

    She would have charged more for that. :D

    You might want to consider the 1.6" barrel versions instead of the Pug. I did some chrono testing (in the NAA thread here) and the 1" Pug loses 100-200 fps depending on the ammunition.
