    Colt pistol

    well guys, i did it again!
    My uncle was at my home looking at my colt huntsman 22lr pistol.
    He stated that he would give me $100.00 more to sell my colt to him.
    Well he took the colt home and i was $100.00 richer..

    So, with the money i had gone to my local pawnshop to see what they
    had in a 22lr pistol.
    In the counter was a WALTHER PPQ 22LR PISTOL.
    I look it over good, it was a new pistol with two mags and box.
    So i put some money down to put it on layaway. will get it home on the 3rd/june
    here is the pic of the ppq pistol.Walther_PPQ_22_Feature-Graphic_OCT15-web-1.jpgwalther-arms-5100300-2.jpg

    Ever once in a while I find a deal ad pawn shop, but most of the time stuff is too high.

    The extra $100 you got for the Colt, will help off set the cost of the magazines you purchased that would not work.

    Not a good move, if you wanted an accurate pistol................The Colt is a much more accurate pistol ..................

    You traded a Colt, for a Price Point Plastic Pistol..............

    You got rid of a Colt Huntsman for that?

    Well, okay. Your call.

    In your defense, the Walther is a good pistol, and perhaps it better suits your needs.

    I would not take three Walther's for one Colt woodsman!
    You lost out big on that deal!

    Hope that works out for you.

    Two vastly different fire arms, the Huntsman and the Walther. Different purposes, different prospects for retained value, different levels of accuracy. Kinda like trading a BMW 330 for a Chevy Volt. Both of them will get you from Point A to Point B.

    At least you came out 100.00 ahead. Maybe you have a future in gun trading?

    Wish we had pawn shops like yours around here. I've never found anything that shoots worth considering in a local pawn shot.

    Boy you got no future in gun trading. A mans got to know his limitations. Yard goods may be a good field to try.
