    I'm looking for a beater to keep in the car for those times where I don't carry. Not looking for something real expensive since this will be left in the glove box out in the heat and cold all the time. Something with alot of wear on the finish would be good, but must be functional and reliable. I'd prefer something in a 1911 frame, but anything is considerable. Even a wheelgun for cheap would be nice.
    Anybody with a beater they want to get rid of, post what it is and pics if you could. Thanks!

    I have an older Colt Police Positive Special .38sp 4" barrel. This is a small frame 6-shot revolver. Blue condition is only 40% but it's tight mechanically and the ejector rod/crane is straight. I was told that it is an old Baltimore Police officer's gun. It sure looks like it might have been used to club a few people over the head. ;Q

    I will sell for $140 - I pay for the shipping.

    I'm not really looking for an antique, but I will keep yours in mind as a possibility Jeff. Thanks.

    Would you be interested in a Steyr M40? $200 plus shipping to your FFL.

    Not crazy about that gun, but I'll think about it.
