We seem to have traveled the same path in our gun buying. You are right, prices are insane. I would like to have the gun, I just need my "wanter" fixed for now.If you're thinking about it, it must be reasonable. Prices are insane in my opinion. I sure am glad that I got my used stainless .44 Redhawk years ago for $375.00. I remember thinking that the pristine used .44mag Super Blackhawk I paid $450.00 for was a lot of money!
