Pawn Shop Circuit: Missed Opportunity
Over at Neil's shop, a Model 65-5 Ladysmith was in the case. Neil had it priced at $299. It was a nice carry revolver with a round butt and fixed sights. The three inch barrel and Ahrends grips made this .357 into a sweet CCW piece. I thought about it a bit as I went through the Jim March Revolver Checkout on it. The gun checked good, and it had no zit lock, but I am just not a stainless fan. I own a few stainless revolvers, and this was a nice one, but I have to draw a line somewhere. I gave it back to Neil.
Thus, I left two good Smith & Wesson revolvers on the shelf. Hopefully I will spot another undervalued five screw gun soon. Hunting season is upon us, and I expect to see more and more handguns in the cases.
