    I found an RG .38 5 shot snubby revolver at a local shop. They want $75 for it. I handled it and it seemed pretty solid. It looks like it's been shot quite a bit. You have to pull the pin out of the front to reload it but this would be more of a cheapo bug that I keep in the glovebox, anyway. Anyone have experience with these? Would you pay $75 for one? I figure if I don't like it I can get that much for it pretty quickly, anyway.

    My dad had one when he was with the Dept. of Corrections and it was the first pistol I learned with.

    They are crap. Pot metal, heavy trigger. $75 is too much for a worn out used one. I would avoid it like the plague.

    I already tried that. It's an indoor range that sells guns on consignment and the guy won't budge on his price :wtc:.

    I bought it. It was worth the $75. Actually I kinda like it :hs:. The only real bitch I have about it is the heavy trigger pull. Both targets are at 7 yards.

    Here's all I have to offer on cheap guns.

    If you can shoot 50 rounds through it with no mechanical defect and it costs less than $100, why not? You can use it as a throwaway piece. Or a cheap murder weapon.

    That one doesnt look to bad. The 22 i've got is stainless, and it looks like poop. The cylinder doesnt like to come out half the time without getting stuck. I probably would have spent $75 on yours.

    Yeah, I'm thinking I have the same one as you. The cylinder gets stuck half the time and it looks like shit :hs:
