    So, I know a guy....

    So I know a guy who has a revolver he is looking to sell. He ordered it new and has done nothing more with it than look at it and show it to me.

    My problem is that I have been really really good this year in not buying anything new in the way of firearms (long or short). And in all practicality this would not make any sense for me to purchase. It's not like I have a need for it. It's too darn big to carry as a concealed carry weapon of choice. Would be impressive to carry as a out side carry choice, but it would more than likely pull my britches down unless I grabbed a pair of suspenders or shoulder holster.

    And we don't see any large animals like bear or buffalo around here unless you go to the zoo or a local animal preserve.

    But, the price is good at just under $500 for a new Taurus Raging Bull 454 Casull 6 1/2" stainless (not the real stainless, but the Taurus stainless steel look coated finish).

    What to do, What to do?

    Unless you reload, 454 Casull ammo is expensive. I have that same pistol. Remember, it also shoots 45 Long Colt. Offer him $470 (which is probably what he paid).

    If I only bought the guns I needed, I’d only have one or two guns instead of over a dozen that I have.
    One measure of wealth and freedom is being able to buy something you want, even though you don’t need it.
    If you can get it at a good price, get it.
    You can always sell it later (yeah, right).

    I'd pass on it because of the finish, I really dislike the fake stainless finish. Just my 2¢.
