Glad you found what you were looking for! That must have been a rush hearing a yes after 21 no's. If you don't mind me asking, what city/town was this shop located in?

I am thinking if it goes well at the range, I will call around during the week and maybe take a road trip if something comes back positive. Makes me feel good knowing there are some out there!

Default If you are in San Diego

I would highly recommend Hillcrest Pawnbrokers. Pawn Shops are a great place to pick up good used firearms. The good thing about about pawn shop are that they get a little bit of everything. Old and like new firearms

Say Mossy Man, where you shopping, if you don't mind me asking, I'm in Fair Oaks, not much in the local shops around here.

I've bought and sold guns here on CG. To all those who say make sure you field strip the gun and inspect before buying, I'd also throw in 2 things. First, make sure you actually know what you are doing. I've had a guy who had trouble taking the slide off a glock, now knowing you need to pull it back a little so you can work the takedown lever. Second, I've seen guys break down guns for the potential buyer for individual inspection of parts, especially for higher end guns. I can understand this, because if the buyer breaks anything before purchase, then it gets messy over who pays. Having the seller take down the gun doesn't mean they are shady, just careful with their investment. You can always watch every step, build rapport, and do the assembly if you know what you're doing.
