I missed a really great deal on a little Charter .38 a couple years ago - the LGS wanted $169 for it. Seemed like a serviceable gun, but I just didn't have any disposable cash at the time.

But for this case, I can tell you that in the time I've been reloading, I've acquired more than a 5 gallon bucket full of .38 special brass without even trying. I find it on the ground. Friends give it to me. It teleports itself in. In the same span, I've acquired a grand total of 42 empty .44 special cases. It's not like I wouldn't have noticed either. It's just not around. If you're only going to have a couple guns, they should be guns you can keep fed.

I made the mistake of going to the gun shop today...

Long story short, there were a Sig 229 in 40, a G19 and S&W 686+ 3" on consignment by the same dude. I've given him a call, and I'll be meeting him tomorrow to talk price. I also asked to be paid in cash from my debtor and he agreed, so I've got money in hand.

They're asking more for the Sig and Smith than I want/have to pay, but I'll try and haggle a little. I'd prefer the Sig, just because I'm used to the DA/SA of the Beretta. That being said, I won't turn down the Glock, which is more likely to be a deal.

In order of desire, I'd probably go with the 686 first if it's a no-lock, then the G-19 - but I could also see the G19 first, then the SIG. I like SIG's, but I don't like the .40 as a cartridge.

But you'd almost need to start a new thread if you're looking for insight there.
