    While traveling back for San Antonio yesterday, Stopped in Sequin for supper and then stopped in at the Cash America. Sitting on the rack was a Ruger 44 Carbine in about 75-80%. It came home with me. :D 1982 manufacture based on the serial #.
    With a little rem oil and 0000 steel wool it is now closer to the 85-90% and a smooth action.
    I think it was a nice addition to the fold for $250+tax.

    They also have a S&W Escort (mdl 61-?) for $159.00 that I should have picked up.:(

    Great find. Last one is saw on a rack was at Cabela's for somewhere over $500 and was in "decent" shape.

    Pictures are forthcoming, I have to spend today and Tues in San Antonio so it should be wednesday before I can get pictures up.

    I love the small town gun shops and pawn shops. You can find a little bit of everything there and usually at a decent price.

    I'll have to allocate some extra time next trip to the folks' house in Lufkin - plenty of pawn/gun shops between there and DFW...

    I live right by Fort Hood. The pawn shops around here are a Gold mine.

    Nice find!
