So at the gunshow yesterday, I found a gun that I had been looking for:
A Beretta TomCat 3032 in STAINLESS. (I have one in the Matte /parkerized finish, but my sweat eats non stainless guns…I have to clean it twice a week in the summer months, so I was looking for a stainless one)
When they were in production they weren’t common. now that production is currently on hold they are kinda hard to find.
Found one in a showcase. If it has been shot, it is less than a box full. like maybe a mag, if that. I think it was a drawer gun.
He wanted $530 which is about what they go for on GunBroker (plus shipping and FFL fees).
I offered $350. He said “no”. I walked.
Passed by again (he was at a corner table) and he offered $475. I countered with $375. He said “no”. I walked.
Saw him once more about 45 minutes later….he offered $400. I offered $399. He looked at me and smiled and the deal was done.
Private sale. (Which was good because NICS was down most of the afternoon).
