Good friend called me about a multi gun estate sale and I’d better hurry if I wanted anything nice. I asked if there were any S&W handguns and he said yes...they just sold a model 27 for $400!!! So I beat feet over there. They were only letting in one buyer at a time with a 4 gun purchase limit. I arrive and There is One guy in front of me buying long guns mainly. Very poor gun handling going on as usual at these sort of events. I finally get my turn at the table. Watched a pre 18 being bagged up for $500. (!!) and a model 650 3” for $400. Lord...anything S&W left?? Just a 15-2 snubby that had the ugliest thumb rest left handed stocks and a screwed on trigger shoe. Price was $500. Pass. Let me look at the Winchester model 12, two barrel set. They hand it to me chamber closed. I clear ALL GUNS. I don’t care how many hands it’s been through. Sure enough...a LIVE high brass turkey load IN THE CHAMBER. This gun had been through at least 5 sets of hands including the chief of police. Holy crap. I would have levt then but I figured if I hadn’t been shot yet may as well play my hand out. I ended up buying a hi standard 104 Olympic target gun and case. An eldorado 44 single action that I’d never heard of but was well built, a CZ 27 with holster and mags and a Colt 38 special police revolver PD marked. I’ll post some photos tomorrow. Time to say my prayers and hit the rack.
