    They had $300.00 dollars in it. So they made their profit.
    I hate the fact that EZ Pawn won't dicker on gun prices anymore. Though they do have a point that EVERYTHING they sell is covered by their 30 day guarantee.

    Never have used EZ Pawn. I always like to get to the point where the manager is called to ok the deal. Got a 5in bull barreled Ruger MKII for $216.00 out the door that way in very good condition. Price as marked was $320.00 ish if I recall.

    I should have been more specific in jumping topics.
    I recognized the cash america tag, which led to the cost thing, which lead me to pawnshops and gun purchases, then to dickering for prices, which lead me to the comment about EZpawn.

    I went from A to C without going through B.

    92s are great pistols. I currently have two but have owned perhaps eight or more over the years. One went to my son as a Christmas present last year.

    On the plus side they are light recoil high capacity 9's. Easy to strip and clean. Spare parts are easy to find.

    They are big pistols which makes them hard to conceal. Trigger pull is generally clean if a little long on double action.

    Your 92 has a stainless slide. The frame is standard Beretta 92 aluminum with stainless color finish.

    Beretta forum has a 92 stainless http://www.berettaforum.net/ subgroup you may want to check out.

    If you shoot alot, especially +P or even standard NATO 124 gr. you may want to invest in a recoil buffer to add life to the frame.

    Nice pistol!

    No sweat...

    It takes a desperate man to pawn this Beretta for $100.

    Saw another pawn shop temptation: a Walther P99 first gen with OD frame and one factory 16-rd mag for $449. Is this a good deal? Gun has the AS trigger.

    A friend of mine just scored a NIB 90-two for $420. I looked it over and it had one clip missing and a tiny scratch near the sight(who cares??). Every once in a while you CAN find a good deal out there. Congrats on your purchase, I have shot only 84 series berettas in .380 but appreciate the accuracy, styling and reliability of the 92s. If it shoots well you'll think it's worth every penny regardless of what the original pricetag is.

    Good find. I see blued 92FS's for that kind of money but never a stainless one. I am on the hunt for a used 92FS in the price range if anyone knows someone selling a nice piece.
