Went to a local pawn shop last week and was looking for some spare Walther P22 mags. This little gem was under the glass. They wanted $375 plus tax. Talked them down to $375 out the door.



Smith & Wesson Model 15-4



This gun was never fired. Story behind it. Guy in his thirties walk in with that revolver and a couple of beat up long guns. They were his dad's. Father passed away and the guy has to be a gay liberal democrat (he told the pawn clerk that he didn't want guns in his house. Their icky according to the previous owner.) The revolver was bought in 1979 by the father and it stayed loaded in a sock drawer until the day he dies. Idiot son brings it in along with the rest of the guns. The S&W was still loaded when he brought it in. So the pawn shop takes them and throws them up on the rack. I walk in three days later and buy the S&W.



I think I did good rescuing that poor under loved S&W

That is a right nice Model 15 there. Better you owning it than him, that's for sure.

On one hand –– i hope this never happens to my guns  (passed on to a dousche who doesn't appreciate them) ––- but on the other hand,  i'm darn glad you got a good deal on that pretty little S&W

wow, great deal. I am surprised the pawn shop doesn't have to hold items they purchase longer, here they hold them for 90 days before putting them on the shelf, just in case it gets reported stolen.

You can feed that gun Plus P .38s all day.  That's a fine handgun to teach someone new to the shooting sports.

That Tyler T-Grip is a good addition for a K-frame with my big hands.

At least the son didn't think they were so "icky" they needed to be turned in for destruction.

Nice save, at least my two sons will be fighting over who gets what.  They both love shooting.
