Went to Cabela's yesterday to look over their handguns. There were too many lookers to get any real assistance from a salesman. The counters were so crowded with people looking over pistols that it was next to impossible to get serious about shopping. Eventually looked over a few which all seemed to be overpriced. Most prices started at around $400 and went on up to $600+.

Surely there's handguns available somewhere at a reasonable price (for me...$250-$400) that I would like to have. I'm not excited about looking at Hock Shops but I'll probably look at one place this week.

Otherwise, there's one gunshop about seven miles away which might be another place to look. Didn't realize it's be this hard to pick up a reasonably priced CCW handgun which I would be be proud to own.:nod:

Joe...you're absolutely right! Being retired, I can get over there any day of the week. However, my S.I.L. was visiting from out of town and wanted me to go with him to Cabela's so that he could pick up some fishing gear.

Couldn't turn down that request so thought I'd shop guns while he shopped fishing gear. He found his "stuff" and bought plenty, and I saw plenty of "stuff" and walked off empty handed...that is except for a bag of beef jerkey. :D ;)

We only traveled down the expressway about 10 miles before that bag of beef jerkey was history. Can't stop eating it when it's around. It's priced much lower, though, at Sam's Wholesale Warehouse. There I get about twice as much jerkey, that is :kinky: :kinky: :kinky: for the same price. :right:

Try looking at Taurus for revolvers if you really shop they can be bought new for 190. I used a local ffl to order mine from Ron Schirk Distributing for $190 for the 606 357 mag. if your after a small autoloader you may just go through a local ffl and order one of the toys JG sales lists or one of the toys at CDNN Investments.

Buy a Taurus 445 in 44 Special. You can get a titanium, stainless, or plain ol blue for about $300. Mine is stainless and great to carry. I bought it to put in the bottom of my tackle box. The lightweight ones take a little getting use to but after you master them they are accurate. The 44 special has always been considered an accurate caliber. Handloads can approach 44 mag power but I wouldn't suggest it.

Yup, timing is everything. Wish I could have ya come up for a day & show you around. Nice relaxing shopping experience. Barber shop is rightnext to the gun store.(within walking distance) 2000 guns in stock! Haircuts still $5.00. I'm a big spender I tip $1.00. Walk up the street and check out more guns and boats. Dan sold out ran the businees years after his old man passed. WWII vet with one arm. An institution in town. A couple of blocks up is a liquer store. Across the main road they put up an ATM machine. I hate the headlights at night, otherwise convienient. Other tan living next to the river and train tracks, pretty much heaven :D
