    Good, bad, or indifferent? Dont really want it, but it's cheap. And I have a ton of ammo for it.

    Always do it if you have the money.
     
  3. It's not a good deal if all it does is sit in the safe. If you have a reasonable expectation of actually using it, then go for it.

    like i said in another thread, i'd buy any (legal) gun thats balls cheap. :dunno: why not? it can always be sold later, given to a buy back for profit, or used as a training tool.

    Well let me revise my claim...

    What do you mean by "good deal"? If it is a steal like the other thread with the 100 dollar .357 then hell yeah... if it is a 500 dollar gun for 450 then no.

    I've bought guns just to use up ammo before.

    Shooting is more fun than collecting.

    That's almost where Im leaning. But I may wind up shooting the piss out of it and dropping its value.

    Missed the 0 key. It's the M10. 9mm Luger, not the smaller one.

    They seem to be in the $3500-$4k range.

    And te wait wont kill me.

    How's the MG market compared to the rest of the gun market (in terms of the recent/forcasted slow-down)? I would imagine that the cheaper/more available stuff is starting to take a dive?

    Everything took a hit, but it's slowly going back up.

    In your head
    I did it once, almost twice. First one I did because I wanted it anyways.

    Second one I didn't do was because the the gun wasn't in the best condition and wasn't chambered for modern shotgun shells (old ass Win model 12). He wouldn't drop the price down to what I wanted to either. I still might buy and clean it up though as I think I could flip it.

    A gun is better than no gun. A cheap gun is that much better.
