I got my last 3 guns from fellow Calgunners and I'm very happy with each of them. I didn't see something and decide to buy it, but wanted specific things and found them at a good price. Do the needed research to know what you're buying, ask the right questions, and inspect a used gun carefully after you receive it. It's great to have a new gun, but you can get one that's "like new" at a discount and typically broken in already. More of my guns I bought used than new, and love every one of them.
