    I have owned several Llama's in the past. The ones that I owned back in the seventies were good quality guns, I had a .45 and two .380s and never had a minutes problems with them. Of course I traded them all off years ago:mad:. I bought a "new" .380 one about 7 or 8 years ago and couldn't get rid of that piece of junk fast enough. I think if the one you were looking at was one of the older ones, you would be very please with it.

    I had one. Bought it from a guy i worked with when i was 18. Reliable little weapon.

    Its the reason Im a trifle deaf in both ears. Back in my younger days I was too stubborn to wear hearing protection.. Add to that, when i bought the weapon he included about 150 rounds of corbon 185 gr +P+. And I fired every one of them without earmuffs. and it got to where the ringin in my ears never went away.

    I later traded that minimax for a nice winchester .22 mag rifle that had an old baush and lomb scope on it. I ended up losing that one in the pawnshop because i was ignorant enough to hock it for more than i could pay back.. It was worth about 500 bucks, and I got a 300 dollar loan for it, which was 50 bucks over what i paid for the minimax, but I was only making about 275-300 weekly and paying that pawn ticket off just wasnt in the cards..

    Chances are itd serve you well. I dont have a problem with them. They are decent weapons in my experience with them. 350 is about the max id pay for one tho and it would have to be in tip top shape..

    Indeed it does. Walk in there with 3 crispy 100 dollar bills and offer it to him out the door (300 tax included). If the pistol has been sitting in there a while, he will likely take you up on it.

    They got a nice selection because they cant move merchandise because of their high prices..
