it's a nice gun!
i was so mad at myself for getting rid of it.
i drank that money in about 3 days.
it's a great home defense weapon.
i like my new sig myself.

i was thinking about it on the way home.
i got it as a bonus for a stone masonry job i did, got thirsty and sold it for $300.
now i am buying it back for $325.
so in reality i got a ruger sp 101 with crimson trace grips for $25.

That's a good bit of luck!! I sold a bicentennial Blackhawk, yer\ars ago, and kicked my self around the house every time I thought about it. I'll never see it again, though, that was in California. But that sp101 is a great pistol. I bought a gp100 just before I moved out here, and it's one of my favorites for varmints when I'm riding horses. My oldest son had a special holster made for me, and it makes for very comfy carry!

yeah i am glad to have it back.
it looks like he dropped it on pavement .
there are a couple of scratches on the cylinder now.
i forgot how heavy the trigger pull is on this thing.
i am thinking of putting new springs in it.
i am not suprised he dropped it.
HE is a slobbering drunk now!
i just hadda wait for him to run outa money and then offer to buy it back!:kinky:

the laser is setup for 50 feet.
i will take it to the range soon and see how accurate this thing really is.

it's hard to learn from mistakes when they turn out like this eh steve?:09:

on one hand it feels like a mistake.
on the other i feel like a smart shopper!:Eyecrazy:

A good holster is worth $50, so your ahead $25. Don't spend it in one place.:burnout:

All around good deal, you got sober, your gun back and made money.

Well I hope the trigger pull is from you forgetting how heavy it was and NOT from it being dropped. You might want to check the ejector rod or anything else to make sure the cylinder or anything within it isn't tweaked since you said it looks like he dropped it due to the cylinder having scratches on it.

Otherwise, glad you got an old reliable friend back, and for $25 buckaroos.
