A good P day

I had a lucky day today. I found a nice P89 for $230. Another shop down the road had a 9mm P94 for $200. It was a little rougher but they took a trade I offered so I got it cheaper. Then I stopped at a pawn shop and they had 2 new Ruger factory stainless 15rd mags. So I got 2 new P series guns, 5 mags total and spent about $350.
I've been wanting to focus on some classics, especially some I've owned before but let slip away. These 2 fit the bill nicely.

The P94 came with Hogue rubber wraparound grips, but I had these available. I still haven't gotten to a range but I hope to soon.

Congratulations on your find.That type of day shopping would be impossible here in New Jersey. There is nothing wrong when things go right.

I have the P94 in 40cal. I would love to find one in 9mm. They seem to be nowhere?
