Pawn Shop Circuit: Pearls and Smiths
I thought about it a bit while Dave took care of another customer. Finally, I decided to pass. It was a stainless gun, not blue. I already had a Model 66, although it is not pinned or recessed. Finally, at $329, the price was OK, but not something to make me reach for my wallet. I handed the revolver back and came home.
I looked in my safe as soon as I got home, and retrieved the pearls I had purchased my wife for our anniversary. I wasn't certain when she would arrive home, but I wanted them in my pocket when she drove up. At four o'clock, Ilsa announced her arrival with a woof and a dash to the door. I gave her a hug, and wished her a happy anniversary. I pulled the pearls out of my pocket and placed them around my mate's neck. She squealed with delight. Then she asked what I wanted........
"Why a gun, of course."
"But you buy your own guns."
"I know, but there is one I saw today, and I wrote down the serial number......"
