Pawn Shop Circuit: New Territory
I crossed the street to his competitor, and found a case full of Hi Points. Snuggled among the cheap plastic was a bit of Colt gun steel, however. I spied a Colt 1908 Vest Pocket Pistol. It was in pretty good shape, and it still had case hardening coloring on the trigger and grip safety. I looked at the price and almost choked. The tag said $400. I said no go to that one as well.
When I returned to my car, I dug my Blue Book out from underneath all the papers in the back seat. I looked the little Colt up, and discovered the $400 price tag was not far off base. Still, for a .25ACP pistol that I will rarely shoot, I think I will just hang on to my money a while.
