    Noooo! Does this happen to you or is it just me?

    Just bought STI Stacatto P 9mm and extra mags a week or two ago.

    I really wanted a .45acp, none available anywhere in the country.

    Today, a local tells me he wants to sell his Stacatto P in .45acp set up for red dot. How does this happen, am I cursed? Is the God of guns messing with me?

    Who has had this happen? , you search and search, make a buy and next day one pops up better!

    Now I’ve got to scratch up more secret cash. Caleb, since you’re younger, I appoint you to tell my wife the real prices of my high end 1911’s when I pop off. Be gentle, she may actually know Wilson Combat’s are not 399.99

    Lol... I remember hearing a story as a child about a boat my grandfather once had. He wasn’t using it and told my grandmother he was going to sell it. Well, he was gone on a hunting trip and grandma had a yard sale. She didn’t “try” to sell the boat but someone saw it and asked if it was for sale. She knew grandpa wanted to sell it but didn’t know a price so told the guy to make her an offer thinking she’d get his number and have grandpa get in touch with him later. Well the number the guy gave her was much higher than what she THOUGHT grandpa had paid for it several years earlier so she sold it on the spot thinking he’d be very happy. He came home a couple days later and was not very happy!

    That.... and my other grandfather who once bought my grandmother a vacuum cleaner as an anniversary present, are lessons I shall not forget.

    Ahh, good memories. I lost both of my grandfathers a couple years ago within 4 months of each other. Both WWII navy men well over 90.

    Good story

    My Dad was Navy, Mom was Army. Both served in WW2

    I still have Mom’s model 10 S&W .38 and the receipt for 54 bucks new. A roofer owed Dad 25 bucks in 1959 and gave him a new .303 British Jungle Carbine in cosmoline in exchange. I have it too. Will never get rid of either.
