That genie is already out of the bottle

    I went into a local pawn shop this past weekend. Sitting amid the many, many plastic framed handguns in mostly 9mm, .40, and .45, there was a 1975-ish S&W .38 Special, a 1980-ish Colt .45ACP, and a late 1920s Colt Model 3 in .380ACP, refinished in nickel.

    All were described by the shop owner as “shooters, not collectibles” due to their used condition.

    On the rack were a dozen shotguns, a handful of scoped hunting rifles, and two milsurps, one a 1917 Lee-Enfield Model III with rough wood but a nice bore, the other a Mosin of some kind. For less than a grand I could have had any gun in the shop, or 2 or 3 if I chose carefully.

    That was one normal pawn shop in a small town in Texas. And the usual suspects are worried about printable gun specs available online. I’d think they had no idea about gun availability, but I think they do, and just want to demonize the idea of guns as much as possible.

    That said, the S&W wasn’t that used looking, and if it stays there a week or two I bet the price goes down.
