A hearty congrats on that special find. I too would like to find such a firearm in that caliber but since they're out of production by most manufacturers, that's highly unlikely.I have seen people post good deals they got in the Cabelas Gun Library, but I sure haven't seen any at our local store. Until today...
I stopped by Cabelas since I was in the neighborhood and wanted to check for some 32ACP ammo - no luck there. BUT, since I was in the store I decided to check the inventory in the Gun Library just to see if it was still pathetic as the last time I was there, when all they had were about a dozen plastic pieces in the handgun cases.
Today it was different, because there in the case was a Taurus 327 Federal Magnum. I've been looking for one of these for a few months now. They have been selling on GB for $700 and up!
I found one last week on Armslist for $550 (just the gun, nothing with it), but when I finally got around to calling about it this morning, the guy said it had literally been sold about 15 minutes before I called.
So when I saw one in the case there at Cabelas I was floored. It was priced at only $380, looked almost brand spanking new, came with the box, keys, docs and all, and I got to handle and inspect it closely in person before the purchase!
To top it off I had just over $60 in points, PLUS a $40 gift card. So tax and all I got it for $314 - though I will have to pay a $30 FFL fee since I bought it in Idaho and it has to go to a Washington FFL for the BGC & paperwork.
SO, I FINALLY found a good deal on a gun at Cabelas! Felt like I ought to go buy a lotto ticket!
