How do you get a factory reconditioned gun?

i'll combine two threads into one here in my response. the poster above me deserves to be perma-banned for comparing the feeling of gun ownership to the feeling to fatherhood.

As far as I can recall, there are not many times when something happened & it changed me. There are even fewer recently. I had nothing else to compare it to, and like I said

It was almost the same feeling, but nowhere near the extent,
so I went with that. My son being born was hte same feeling, just on a much grander scale. But both events changed who I am, how I think & act. I dont know why Im defending my statement, everybody else I talk to knows what I am tryin to say, but I do appreciate the nitpicking....

Sweet, where did u find a reconditioned one?

I have been working Saturdays in a pawn shop, the people I work for own 8. Half of the stores have ranges, and them stores move some firearms. It was in my store, I saw in another store that the same model was $500 & up, so I grabbed this onw for a little less loot....

Love the .40 over the 9mm

Absolutely, had looked at a 9mm, but I wanted a little more stopping power....

Nice pistol, please don't buy that abomination that is that shotgun, unless you plan on breaching a sh#t load of doors. 870 or something with a stock atleast please.

PGO shotguns look cool but will put you at a tactical disadvantage. If you ever try to shoot magnum loads out of one it would break your wrist.

Thanks for the advice. Getting that shotty is more for humerous effect, just because Ive been sayin the zombie bit for a while. They made it for me, kind of thing.. Just me being stupid.. With a firearm...

What did you name it?

Sweet. Finally got a firearm in my home as well.

Glad I got what I did when I did.

Bring an 870 home later in the year. Its older so I want to recondition the stock, add an extension to the mag and shave the barrel down to 18.5.

We do, but it's behind the instruction manual for the car seat so it never gets found.

I don't own any guns. That's an automatic 5 years federal for me. I would own a few though, if that wasn't the case.

I'm fixin to sell my 3 guns. I was an NRA member back in the day but that sh*t up in Connecticut f*cked me up. I've got two boys that are 3 & 7. I'm done with firearms.

i've never heard of anyone making that decision as a reaction to those shootings... interesting. what specifically led you to this?

Not sure other than causing a self evaluation. I haven't taken my guns out of a locked case since '98. I have nothing against gun ownership. Some of these automatic weapons are a bit extreme. I just have no use for them any longer.
