Picked up another Minty DS. No box or papers. It had some pachmayrs on it....and they looked and felt great. I am NOT a guy who really likes Snubies..but again (see my thread from last weeks gun show find) I run into one for fantastic price..O well after getting him down a bit more on price, as I explain it doesn't have the factory grips...ill take it. This is where it gets funny. He is a private seller with 4 tables of stuff... moving down to the next table I see he has a glass display case full of stocks with a sign 15.00 each take your pic...and what do I see. You guessed it..A mint and I mean mint pair of DS factory stocks. I quickly hand him 15.00...and after handing me the grips..he says.. "hey what do those fit.. I cant lie..and said Detective Special... he just game me the deer in the headlights look. I smiled and politely thanked him and walked away.





About 30 minutes later found this little guy. A PP in .38 S&W that I rescued. She is one those guns...thats 70% in some places..and 98% in others if you know what I mean. But she is marked RY.EX.AGY. Railway Express Agency. She was made in 1931 and since the Railway Express Agency was in Jacksonville, my home town. I assume its been here ever since. :)
