Sometimes the decision is so easy......



It was marked $299 in the case.  Used, on consignment.  Minor holster wear... not a safe queen.  It has been carried a bit, but not abused.  

The box is not the original, but I believe it's correct for the model and (roughly) for the build date.

Do I NEED another snubby?   No.... 

Could I pass this one up?   NO....

I have a similar Model 36; had the hammer bobbed. Love it.

Considering that a 2014 version of that same Snubbie (with that horrible Safety Lock on it) sells for around $450 up here around Cleveland, Ohio, I salute your Buying Acumen!

There's always room for another snubby. Congrats!

Nice purchase. I bought a nickel version 2-3 years ago for $400 unfired. Turned into a carry favorite instantly. I confess to being one who prefers revolvers because, in practice, they are like a fork. They just work.

I have one of those as my EDC, I like carrying it but shooting it is mildly unpleasant so I don't usually run more than 20 rounds through it on any given range trip. Pretty much just enough to know it still works and shoots where it's supposed to.
