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.

Friendly Pawn, Hwy 49, Saucier, MS, 23NOV2020
Rossi Mod. 851 .38 Spl. $299
Stainless steel, 4" bbl, vent rib, full underlug.
I have a carbon-copy twin of this revolver. I bought it brand-new in 1994, from Wal-Mart in Hattiesburg (back when Walmart sold handguns).
It's been a GREAT revolver, especially for the price. My wife ""claimed it as hers"" when we got married in 1996, and it now resides in her bedside nightstand. @CajunBP you (or your brother) need this.

What’s up with Randy?
He's good, but not liking the cold weather. I visited with him last week, when I stopped by for some primers. He and the wife are looking forward to doing some post-retirement travelling in their RV soon.

Sorry, no picture, but I stopped in Friendly Pawn on Hwy 49 Saucier, MS, this morning. They had a Sig Sauer P229 stainless 9mm that just came out of pawn this morning. Priced at $349, and had aftermarket Hogue wrap-a-round rubber grips. Looked pretty good, but I need another 9mm like I need another hole in my head. Also, I owned a P250 several years ago that was a lemon, and put a bad taste in my mouth for all things "Sig".

The 229 should be a good one I wouldn't hesitate pulling the trigger on buying it had I had the funds.

The P250 I had I didn't think was to bad for a DA only pistol. Just had a long trigger pull like all the other DA pistols out there.

The P250 I had wouldn't go through 1 complete mag full without jamming. Plus, you were lucky if you could keep all shots in a pie plate at 7 yards. Worst pistol I've ever owned.
