Garage sale find

I bought my dream gun at a garage sale. A Ruger Redhawk!!! 45 colt, and never been fired. The gal was a soon to be ex wife. $ 400.00 bucks . When I told her it was worth more she just said she'd tell him he lost his ass on this one. no wonder she's gonna be an ex.

Nice, One question I have was she legal to sell someone else's gun, just a thought.

If she's a "soon to be" ex, then she's still married, and she can sell anything in the house she wants to.

I would say she was clearly a little upset with the dear boy. My instincts tell me she isn't the only woman he was involved with.

The legality of the transaction is a good question. There are a few scenario's where it could be legal (depending on state laws) and a few where it may not be. At this point it sounds a little late to worry about it. I assume she wrote you a receipt for the cash??

I guess I had it my mind maybe not married but a GF ( soon to be ex can mean many things ) and then he could claim stolen ect and your out $400.00 ( not to be a downer but you have to be careful these days ) just sayin'

I'm in the wrong area. I have never seen a gun at a garage sale.

Would it be inappropriate to ask if she is cute?

Nice find and a great buy - congratulations. In Florida that would be perfectly legal - selling a gun at a garage sale here is no different than selling an old lamp. Which reminds me I should start going to more of those things......
