    Hey john, I picked up a pink lady new for $339 at a local shop for the Mrs. I was very impressed with the feel and accuracy. I later picked up a gold finger for myself.

    Double D. I just noticed the one at your show looks like an off duty or DAO. mine is exposed hammer base model, probably less money. This dealer i bought from is the bomb on new stuff, but kind of high on used. I have another dealer that gives away used but has huge mark ups on new.

    Yea, its a hammerless DAO. I have been told by one supplier that after I do so much business with them they ship for free. That would be awesome. I could go even lower on all my prices. I will never forget that I was the buyer for all these years and loved to get a good deal. I will always have that mindset and will try to get my customers good deals.

    I am programmed to be cheap. I don't have to even work at it anymore. As a collector, I don't need anything. Therefore, I have time to wait on the right price. It would be different if I needed a gun for a certain purpose. I Know guys like yourself that are in it because they like the hobby not because they want to make a Million bucks. so, Keep up the good work and have fun doing it.

    Well I plan to keep it up and maybe the money will come with it. If I can do large volumes at low prices.

    I had a car dealer tell me he would rather sell 20 cars at $100 a piece pofit, than sell one at $1,000 mark up.
