I was researching my next firearm and boiled it down to the Sr9c. My wife said hold off on any purchases. So I figured I would cash in some old junk gold thats been in my draw since the 1980's . I figured i would get 100 to 150 to put towards a new gun for a later date, without getting the wife too riled up. So he tally's up the small pile of 14 k , and I ask him if he has a new Sr9 c . He says yes , and if I do make a purchase he will take off $25.I now own a new Sr9c. the best part is that my wife is just as happy as I am cause I walked out with 200 dollars in my pocket. I got 640 dollars for the gold . I could not believe it . the place I went to was not actually a pawn shop but a gold and diamond exchange with a gun shop in the back. I have shot similar guns but never the SR 9c. it feels and looks better than the competition. my research says it shoots as well too . Monday is range day .
