High Caliber in Long Beach, MS
Taurus 1911 .45 ACP $399
Not bad for the $399 . . . Novak (style) sights, beavertail, Commander hammer, forward slide serrations, ambi-safety

I'm not a Taurus semi-auto fan but a friend mine has one these and he says he never had a problem with it.

I went by Cook's Gun Shop in Biloxi today. They're not technically a pawn shop, but they do sell used and consignment guns, so . . . .

If anyone wants to get into black powder revolvers, they have a like new-in-box 1858 Remington New Model Army, made in Italy by Pietta. It's the steel frame (not brass) so it will handle hotter loads. They have it priced at $130. If I didn't already have 2 BP revolvers, I'd have been all over it. PLUS, since it's black powder, there's no 4473, and you could probably talk them into shipping it to you if you're not local. After all, Cook's does a lot of Gunbroker business, so they're not new to shipping items.

If I read that correct and it is $130.00 that is a good deal.

Yep. You read it right. $130 bucks.
The more I think about it, the more I think I might go back and get it.
I could order one of these .45 LC or .45 ACP Conversion Cylinders for it, chop the barrel down to a snub nose, sweat on a new front sight, convert the plow-handle grip to a bird's head, and make a "Bulldog" out of it. There's a whole series of YouTube videos out there showing you how to do it.
