Pawn Shop Circuit: Juniors & Snubs
The Colt Junior is not a Hartford gun. It was actually made in Spain by Astra and sold under the Colt name. It is not a Colt 1908 Vest Pocket pistol. Considering that it is in a caliber that I do not stock, that I would never carry it, and a KelTec P32 whips it's tail anyway; for $350, someone else can buy it. Neil still had his Astra Constable as well. It seems more and more Nawlins pistols are popping up.
Over at Dave's shop, a Taurus Model 85 .38 special snubbie had been added to the line-up. Many people swear by Taurus as a maker of firearms, but for the price, I would just as soon buy a used Smith & Wesson.
A pocket gun is often the best way to pack heat in the humid Summers of Louisiana. For several years, as soon as the weather turned warm enough for shorts and sandals, my carry mode has switched from a IWB holstered 1911 to pocket carry with a J frame. Dave was wanting $189 for this revolver, and it will be an adequate pocket gun for somebody. With it's Uncle Mike's boot grips, it is ready to go.
