    What does the SW Book tell you about price in any specific location or market.?? Same with Blue Book????

    As the old Pawn Shop mantra, Blue Book is just a suggestion (when pawning) then of course it is 100% value when the try and sell it!

    These days with internet, the blue book is out of date as soon as it's printed

    Wasn't me. I joined this & other forums because of friendly, helpful folks who answered a question from a 1st poster, me. I no longer visit forums where snarky elitists think if you ain't one of them you ain't nothing.

    A five post count is more reasonable than thirty. It's hard to run up a post count when you know nothing about the subject matter. Like many my first post was about value and info on a Highway Patrolman. Then after lurking on both forums for quite some time I felt comfortable posting more questions and answers. There's no right answer. If it's convenient I'll look up a number for somebody but if it's not I'll just let it go and usually somebody will answer.

    A person should be able to join and post, start a thread, ask a question without there being a limit. Setting up a limit might restrict new members who become regular and fun members who make this place a online home. Those with just the one question, try to sell, who may never return, they will just pass on and best to them in their life.

    Here I am with just 2 Smiths and a well know poster. I like this forum and have made many good friendships here. Great place to chat. May be down to one shortly. My hunting buddy Jimmy wants my 460 real bad. Might have to sell it to him and buy a Desert Eagle in 50 AE. I just have to have at least one big bore cannon.

    Not sure if my 60's vintage S&W bolt action long gun qualifies as a true S&W. After all it is a Husquavarna and imported by Smith and Wesson, not built by.

    Far as I'm concerned, if they go bang and shoot somewhat accurate, they are all good with me.

    I'm really a long gun (bolt action) person, not a revolver or semi auto person.

    Take a peek at the members list and you'll be surprised at the vast number of "members" that have 0, or 1 post. I'd venture a guess that if those ghost members were dropped, the forum membership number would be cut more than half. There really should be a inactive time limit set.
