Pawn Shop Circuit: Hidden Treasures
I wheeled on over to Kenny's, and I found an interesting pistol. This one was a Browning Hi Power, finished in what appeared to be hard chrome. It wore Pachmayr wrap-arounds, and had adjustable sights. It had the Browning gold trigger. I looked it over a bit for Kenny. He had it priced at $599. I kept my thoughts to myself, but I was not certain if Browning ever made a hard chrome Hi Power. Still, the gun had an impeccable finish, and it just seemed "right". I handed it back to Kenny.
Kenny then asked me what I look for in a gun. This knowledge can be a two edged sword. It might cause Kenny to jack up prices on P&R revolvers, it might make him more comfortable accepting older guns he would otherwise refuse. I simply told Kenny I enjoyed older S&W revolvers at good prices, and I like to shoot 1911 style guns. Hopefully that will help my scrounging without raising my prices. Time will tell.
