So went to a wake earlier in the day and I shaved and wore a collar shirt( which doesn't happen to often). On the way out I stopped at a gun store a couple towns over. I had bin looking online and saw this shop had a couple 38 special's. The online store said they were coming from our warehouse and you had to pay 20 shipping plus 5 for shipping insurance no tax I live in the free State of New Hampshire. So I thought maybe they would have a couple at the shop and save the shipping fee. I stopped in. The only thing they had behind the glass was Ruger and S&W all with 550 + price tags. I asked the kid behind the counter if he had any 38 or 357 in the sub 500 range. I told him I saw the Taurus on his website. He basically tried to explain to me that the only thing I would find would be a Charter arms or Taurus and that I shouldn't trust that it would last or be reliable. Then asked me what state I lived in, as if I was unaware that you can only buy a handgun in the state you reside in. Basically I think he thought I was a new gun buying yuppie. I think it would have bin different if I pulled up on my Roadglide in my work clothes I don't know. I did order an 856 for 330. I also ordered a barkeep for 120 with the rebate will bring it down to 100. I have a tx22 and it has always bin reliable though about 1k rounds.
