Yay Another new toy

Post by CaptainZ » Mon Jul 24, 2006 12:27 pm

For the last little while I have been saving money and selling stuff on ebay for some extra cash. I had $500 to spend and was debating between stuff for my vehicle or electronics or of course a firearm.

I ended up choosing a 3rd Generation Glock 22( 40 S&W ). It is one of the factory rebuilt ones. Looks brand new and comes with the lifetime warranty, 2 factory 15rd mags, lock, and paperwork. I paid $399 plus tax and $7.50 for background check.

Now I know that this is my 3rd glock and I ended selling the first 2 as many of you know, but hopefully I will hang onto this one for a while. I will not be able to go shoot it until this saturday. So a report and pics to follow.

So do you lose, make, or break even on these short lived Glock purchase's?

Depends on how much you bought it for, vs. how much you sell it for... I have a feeling Capt Z is loosing money though. I could be wrong, and I certainly HOPE I am wrong.

Bear if you would like to make a purchase, I would be happy to sell it to you. Though handguns are a bit expensive to send. I have both made and lost money selling my other glocks. Overall though, between the first 2 that I sold, I broke even.

I am the same way with cars and just about everything else. In the past 4 years, I have owned 13 different cars. I will buy something and then sell it on ebay. I am just wierd like that. Overall though, between selling cars and stuff on ebay, I have made a bit of coin...

Ironically my wife, who isnt a big gun person, is begging me to keep it because she is tired of seeing me sell things that I love.

My wife is the same way with my domicile.

She finds a house that is perfect for us we buy said house and then it starts all over. Now that we have the 20 acre farm she is looking at 600 acres outside rolla. (Starting sort of a commune type thing but with out the communist crap) At least when she gets the house bug up her ass I get a new gun.

Actually, after shooting it, I may just hang on to it. I was expecting a very snappy recoil much like my old hi point 40 S&W. It actually turned out to have less recoil than my old glock 9mm's. Very comfortable, and VERY accurate. I loved it. Bear, I will keep you posted if I decide to sell.
