About sippy2
A lil over 30 years ago...I had never owned a handgun...and I worked with a retired military guy..that talked guns a lot. One day he starts telling me about a gun he was selling...a colt diamondback 22. I didn't know anything about guns...but the name sounded cool. The more he talked about it the more I was intrigued. He wanted $200 and guaranteed me...I would never loose a penny on the purchase. He brought it to work...the gun was mint and even included the box. I bought it and loved it. Then he's telling me about another gun he had...bragged it was untraceable. Again I couldn't resist...this time it was a Colt commando...nice condition..not mint like the DB...but was only $150. Didn't shot as nice as the DB...but I liked the bigger bang. He starts telling me....what I would really like is a Colt Python 357. He didn't have one...but hooked me up with a dealer that had new one and wanted $600. Yikes!! too much...but again claimed I would never loose any money on it. Bought it too. Then life changed and I didn't shoot them much. Stuck em in the closet and forgot about them. Fast forward to last son is grown and about the age at which I bought the guns...and he showed some interest in shooting. We took a gun safety class...and have been going to the range off and on. My curiousity piqued and I researched what these guns are worth today. My friend wasn't lying...don't think I will ever loose any money on them.
Guns, golf, motorcycles(not harleys)
