FireEscape, Seems the best deals always come when your wallet is empty. Over the years, I bought a few guns for less than the going price but most of them cost me the going rate. The good news is …. guns continue to go up in value so I really don't think I'll lose any money if I sell them.

This 357 Magnum would work on Whitetails.

The 357mag gives up nothing to the 44mag, for Deer hunting! My buddy had a Rossi 92/357mag, he'd shoot 2-3 Deer a year with it. Used Factory 158gr offerings, wherever he could find 'em. I personally had a newer Marlin 357mag, with the cross bolt safety, was perhaps the most inaccurate rifle I ever shot, and I had a scope on it! Personally, I'd stick with rifle calibers for hunting.

I am pretty used to having that empty wallet. On this occasion it was because, in addition to Christmas it was my birthday and here that means registering and inspecting vehicles, plus property tax time. I had gotten though all of that and the truck had just gotten two new batteries, dentist decided it was time for a new, full set of X-rays in addition to my cleaning and most importantly, I had finally been 'in the right place at the right time' with enough cash when an as new in box, one owner (with bill of sale), 52 year old S&W Model 37 Airweight came up for estate sale at a VERY good price. So, I have no valid reason to complain (and he hasn't sold the Marlin ... yet so ........)

While guns do seem to always go up in price I never consider them an investment. At least it is unlikely that I will see the profit. I tell my friends that ALL of my guns are for sale, they just need to purchase them from my widow!
