So getting into Reno so early and the day before the big show - means lots of time to check out local stores ... Found this Colt official police 6'', marked ".38 " and *Heavy Barrel * - See pics. Serial is 705xxx, making it 1943 or '44 i guess ?
Paid $300 for it.
So what do you guys think ? Would suck if i see one in similiar condition at the show for $200-250 but i kind of doubt it.

Sorry for pic quality, only have the phone with me.

How did you buy a handgun with a CA id? Did they accept your C&R?

Yeah C&R was a not a problem at all - they did ask me to fill the 4473 but did not call it into NCIS as they do with NV residents .. I think thats not needed for FFL to FFL ( C&R ) deal but if they feel better about it - fine by me.

I'd say that's a great score.

They must need money to not pull the NO CA sales on you. Where did you buy it from?

Got it at Scheels ... I think i read here before that they are CA C&R friendly.
Reno Cabelas is also rumored to be CA friendly for C&R and they did have 2 Berettas, a mod 1934 .380acp and a mod 1935 .32acp for like $449 and $499. But i did not look at the serials to check if they are actually 50 y/o.

If anybody from here is going to be at the show friday, i'll be wearing the black with red Scheels cap that they gave me .. Would love to have a beer with you guys !

Nice pistol!
Scheel's you say? I was in there a week or two after it opened and the dude told me they don't do C&R sales! He wasn't anti Cali or anything...he was actually pretty knowledgeable about C&R law. He just said it was store policy. :confused::confused::confused:

Dude.
If they're on the ATF C&R list they don't have to be 50 years old. That's what's great about shopping out of state with your C&R. Still legal to bring it home to CA.

Yeap, you are right - i didn't look at the list and it looks like a lot of mod 1934 and 1935 are there. If only i did not go down to casino last night :( But we'll see.
