My great find was a HK MK23 at Cabela's. $2300 dollars, not a bargain but how many MK23's have you seen at a local gun store?
As a fellow california resident, I feel ya! [not literally. geez, come on people! ]
I am happy with my S&W 19-3 PPC revolver I just found also. Don't know yet how it shoots, but the action is sweet and it SHOULD be a great performer.
As long as I remember not to use +P or .357mag rounds. I've read of some with PPC revolvers who cracked the forcing cone because the aftermarket barrel was on a .357mag, and the new owner used .357mag ammo in a target pistol.
Hmmm, I wonder if I can get a Model 15 or Model 10 cylinder fit to prevent this when my kids inherit it.
Sigs and Non-Sigs: I enjoy having options!
There is a local gun store by me that has some deals every so often and I have been trying to snag a couple. I recently acquired a S&W Shield 2.0 9mm with the CT red laser mounted in the frame. I am not crazy about lasers but for $225, I can't complain. Looks like new and looking forward to shooting it.
About 3 years ago was in the market for a .40 S&W handgun.
I was repairing a guy's computer when I mentioned I was going to the range after I finished. He mentioned his wife had bought a handgun many years prior and didn't like it. She brought out a S&W 4054. We settled on a price of $350.00. There were only 157 made - that has been my best score so far.
She ended up purchasing a .22 Browning Buckmark to replace the one I bought from her.

This has been a month for me. First, I got a deal on a Sphinx SDP Compact with custom parts kits, custom sights, and 5-15 rd mags. Thanks to this forum I have been blessed with 3 more 15 rd magazines for a great price. Second, I finally received my Griffin Optimus approval. Third, a great friend kindly included me on a deal of a lifetime at an estate auction. The list was from quite a collection amd the list was overwhelming. I scored a S&W 1006, a S&W Model 64, a like new Ruger #1 in 45/70, and a new looking Ruger 10/22 stainless with Mannlicher stock all for under $1400.00. I sincerely hope it helped the family but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t ecstatic. The S&W 1006 alone was $375.
In 2004, I won an auction for a Browning BDA, .38 Super NIB, for $646. Now before someone calls BS on this, the auction still can be found online by doing a google search. A few weeks later while in Gulf Shores, I wandered into a gun shop there and saw another one in their case. It was used, but in good shape. They wanted $750 - I was tempted. That used one showed up on an auction site a few months later and sold for a premium price.
I managed to find an unfired, brand new P220R locally. The individual had bought it back in 2019 during the mad rush and now wanted something else. I was able to get it for about 60% of what he paid for it along with two additional magazines for a total of four. The p220 also came with night sights. Admittedly, I was looking for something else at the time but it's really nice to have a classic sig back in the gun safe.
10 or 12 yrs ago, picked up an 870 Special Field with the straight English stock for about 200 bucks from a used rack. Has a few honest scuffs here and there, but is a light, sweet little shotgun.

Its funny. There is a gun store that is a hundred miles from me that sells on GB as "The Attic" thye specialize in importing guns from Europe and have connections in HK's upper management. When I was there they had ordered all 40 mk 23's that where what HK had left. I wanted one but didnt have the scratch
