Sounds like here Shaner, not many used ones around, did find one of the commemorative Whitetail 45-70s last week when I picked up my Kel-tec PF-9, they wanted $199 for it!! Even considering the checkered walnut stock and engraving on the frame, it was a bit overpriced for the condition it was in.

Glad ya got all moved and are gettin settled in. ;)

I am happy that your all set with the move and starting to settle in Shaner. To bad that there may not be a good base of Handi shooters there yet, but I am sure as you show up and the ranges and shoots in the areas over the next few months guys in the area will become interested. Think of it, you can start the interest in that area. At least now if I even end up in AZ I will have a place to visit ;D.
By the way, Stimpylu32 meeds an old Huntsman frame, the kind that cannot be used with rimfire or centerfire barrels and that has the big flat "firing pin". Did you have one you were interested in selling a while back?....<><....:)

I haven't been to Tucson in quite a while but it used to be a great place to shop for used guns. It seems people retire there and decide they no longer need their guns or the old man dies and the widow drops his guns at a store for a fraction of their value so the store makes some bucks and still sells them cheap. I still regret passing up a Beretta 20 gauge side by side for $425 but I just didn't have it at the time. :( That was at Jensens about 15 years ago.
