    I'm floating right now... just scored an older Hillsdale TRS off GB for $1,525

    http://www.gunbroker.com/Item/655392867

    I hate buying guns sight unseen, but I saw this auction and couldn't stop staring at it... What do you guys think?? I shouldn't be worried, right?

    I spoke to the seller and he sounded bummed about the selling price, but was happy to send it on it's way. Judging by the pictures it's in REALLY nice shape for an older Hillsdale example. Seller says it's maybe had just a few magazines thru it - the only things he noted were slight rubs from the holster, but other than that he says it looks new.

    oooooo my wife is gonna kill me.... hopefully not with this gun

    You done good. I own #831 and it is a smooth shooter. One of the "Better Baers" IMHO...

    If she does kill you with this gun it will be better than being assassinated by a Glock

    You stole it! :grin:
    Was expecting the auction to have ended at an odd time for it to go that low, but it looks like that wasnt the case. Grats!
