    SO YOU WANT TO CALL ME A IDIOT?? HOW DARE YOU DO SUCH A THING.....I AM BESIDE MYSELF WITH HUMILIATION!!:eek::eek:

    but you are right, I am one:eek::eek:..heres why.....today, went to favorite gun shop to see about a .22 lever action for wifes Christmas present...didnt have any used so we talked new..now I knew Wal-mart down the street has a Henry for 258.oo plus taxes. but this is my favorite gun shop locally owned..he cane within 20 bucks of wallyworld so told him to order it. while I was waiting for him to take care of cash customers and get the info on the rifle...I wandered over to see what he had in the pistol department..while walking over there I decided to have him order me a new Hi-Point 45 too! but then the IDIOT bug grabbed me!! it drug me all the way over to a ..OF ALL THINGS!!....a 9mm Llama!!!!

    his daughter came over, (she could just smell that bug on me!) and took it out so I could check it out...it fit my hand perfectly! action was smooth, little grimy but not too bad though. I handed it back to her and thanked her!

    I went to the front as Dana was just finishing up and was ready for me. AND FOR SOME IDIOT REASON ..I ASKED..YEP..YOU GUESSED...WHATS THE BEST YOU CAN DO ON THE 9MM LLAMA!!

    well his daughter just walked up behind him and handed it to him, (did I mention she smelled that bug on me?) the asking price was 225.00, Dana smiled at me and started punching in the keyboard..."How about 185 out the door?" he asks. and out of thin air that IDIOT BUG answered.."OK, I'LL TAKE IT AND 2 BOXES OF AMMO TOO!"

    so pick up wifes rifle tomorrow and that Llama followed me all the way home.
    fourtunely, after reading some reviews on line seem I may have lucked out and got the model that is pretty reliable. and its a 1911 clone too! my first!

    :lmao: Don't feel too bad. It should shoot fine and at that price you can probably always sell if for what you paid privately if you really want to after you run out of the two boxes of ammo :)

    Oh no hunter.......
    You are gonna love that Llama !!!!
    I passed on one last year for $250...mistake.
    Back in the day, when Llama's were around, we pretty
    much laughed at them....but you understand...Colt SAA's
    were all around, and reasonable Smith's.....
    I have had a couple Llamas in 9mm-full size...and they were
    always dependable...and fun...and accurate.
    I think this came to you......kharma....for adopting the babies....
    You surely would have been an idiot....if you passed !

    edit:....you are gonna need more ammo......

    I had a Llama in .45 and it was a very reliable and accurate gun. Sold it to a guy at work who still has it and loves it.
    You'll like that Henry too. You bought at a good time. The Henry plant is in NJ and was hit hard by the hurricane. They are shut down for awhile. I'm sure your dealer got a gun that is in a distributor's warehouse. There may be a shortage of them by Christmas though.
    You're no idiot, you're a savvy shopper grabbing a good deal when you see it.

    Bought my first Llama in 1985 while at Ft Sill in the Army. 150.00 for a 1911.

    It hated, hated Blazer ammo. It like Rem and Win. Finally sold that thing in 1999 for 400.00 used to a guy.

    Blued, wooden grips. Put about 1000 rds though it all told. Always shot. but Blazers would not always eject.

    There is an old saying: "Don't grocery shop when you are hungry." The idea is you will always overshop and end up with much MORE than you planned.

    Well, that saying doesn't hold for gun shops. You are ALWAYS hungry when you go in there. I think they spray something in the air. :D:D:D

    You are an idiot, but then again, I would have walked out the door with it too at $180, hell I would probably given $200 for it.

    You'll love the Llama. I still kick myself for getting rid of my 1911 clone. It was very reliable and wold hold all seven rounds in a 1.75 circle at 25 yards.

    I certainly would never call you an "Idiot". I would love to find a 1911 Clone of any manufacture around here for "$ 185.00 out the door". Everything I look at, even if it looks like it went the WWII is well North of $ 250.00, or more.

    Hunter-
    I think you will like your Llama 9mm. I have a Llama .45 ACP clone, uses the same mag's as my Colt .45 ACP and as 2000Shadow states, mine is as accurate as the Colt. Down side is what everyone knows...they are no longer mfg'd and if it breaks...parts may be hard to come by. Here are a couple pics .....hope they post.

    That looks like quite a bit of right rear site windage on that piece telcotech but unless I'm mistaken the front sight looks the same. Is there a reason for that?

    You are quite correct sir and very observant. That pic was taken 18mths or so ago, and just recently I had the Llama out to our local range with my Essex/Colt 45ACP and my Para LDA 14/45. Noticed the messed up adjustment. on the rear sight and corrected it (really don't know how it got that way?). The pistol shoots very well and accuracy wise holds its own at 25yds w/ the other two. I like the sites on the Llama, and the fact that it handles round nose, semi-wadcutters etc. without any issues. My Para LDA is the same way, the Essex framed 1911 needs a good ramp job...as it does not like the semi- wadcutter type bullets. I really should get that done one of these days...cause it's a good shooter also w/ the round nose bullets. The Para is by far the best of the three...it's the LDA Limited model w/ fiber-optic front sight and is just a great pistol. Hope the Llama never breaks.....I enjoy shooting it. Bought it 5yrs ago for $100 plus a v.good condition J.Stevens 12ga. pump. Added the grips 3yrs ago for $18. Several friends at the range have shot it over the yrs, and all seemed to like the Llama....probably should sell it!!

    Dude this kills me, I shot a llama for my last night of my cpl class and it was most likely a used gun from the cabinet! I hope it was not that price as I would have gotten it in a second! Wow, hope you are happy with it, because that one I shot was AWESOME, at least the 10 rounds they afforded me! Congrats!
