    There's a sweet fucking K38 (.38 special --can't take .357mag) @ my local shop for 269.99 (Owner will give it to me for 259.99 since I'm in there all the time ..it's what he paid for it)..

    It's in Great to Excellent condition.. it's been set up as a target gun.. it has a sweet bomar sight rail thingy on top..it's a long piece of rubber ..one of the shop guy says that piece runs for like 139.. its been tuned up nice..

    You guys know I'm not the best shot in the world, but my first time shooting it and this is how I did..

    Think it'd be a good purchase? 259.99 + tax..the rounds aren't too expensive and it'd be a fun range gun.. think it's a good deal?

    one thing i do NOT advise you to buy is that snubnose .38....that thing tore my goddamn hand up bro haha...its the first time ive ever bled from shooting 5 rounds out of any gun....definitely a carry gun and NOT for the range.

    but that K38 was sweet...and that streamlight weaponlight i bought is ridiculously bright...its rated to "blind"...tried it out in my house with the lights off and i was very impressed...with that light i can actually get a good visible sight picture with my non-tritium target sights...

    cheers brother and good shootin 2nite!
    you gave me & my glock a run for its money haha

    p.s. if u ever call me a sackrider again im gonna kill you :nono:

    probably not much more than you're going to pay for it. after all, the shop was only listing it for $10 over what he paid(or says he did anyway). check gunbroker and gunsamerica and see what others are selling theirs for.

    thanks for advising me not to get a snubnose..but remember, that was out of the superlight frame.. i think out of a stainless j-frame it would be MUCH more bareable

    Thats the worst damn "investment" ever. If you want to invest buy a share of Berkshire Hathaway
